E. Victor Nickerson, a 6-7 small forward from Norcross, Ga., committed to play basketball for the 49ers today.
Nickerson chose the 49ers over Colorado, Georgia Southern, DePaul and Wichita State. Nickerson was ranked 30th at his position by rivals.com.
Nickerson averaged 9.3 points and 5.7 rebounds for Norcross last season. He's one of four players on this season's team who will play Division I basketball.
"Charlotte runs an NBA-style pick and roll offense that appeals to me," said Nickerson in a statement. "Coach (Alan) Major has a good history of working with wings and I know he will help me develop on and off the court. I enjoyed my visits and really liked the diversity on the campus. I look forward to a great career at (Charlotte)."
Nickerson is Major's third commitment, joining big man Mike Thorne of Fayetteville and West Mecklenburg High shooting guard Terrence Williams. The 49ers are also pursuing point guard Elijah Carter of Brewster (N.H.) Academy.
