Nichols has scored 1,092 points for the Great Danes over the last two seasons. The Chicago native averaged 17.9 points on 44.3 percent shooting as a junior. Last season, he averaged 14.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists while shooting 39.4 percent from the floor and 36.5 percent from behind the 3-point line.
Nichols visited Florida State this week. He plans to graduate from Albany in June and then transfer to FSU. He also had offers from Oklahoma, Missouri, Xavier and more.
Florida State also had interest in other grad transfer guards, including Maine’s Aaron Calixte.
The Seminoles were in need of guards after the graduation of Braian Angola and the transfer of CJ Walker. Nichols will join a backcourt that includes juniors Terance Mann and PJ Savoy, sophomore Trent Forrest and freshman M.J. Walker.
