Prospect Profile - Luke Nieman
After a strong 2020-21 campaign at Cheshire High School in which he was named All-SCC, Luke Nieman will make the move across town and join Cheshire Academy in the class of 2023 this year.
Nieman is a shooter and gym rat who is exceptionally passionate about the game and eager to measure himself against the type of competition that he'll face in Class AA.
He competed with Connecticut Elite on the grassroots circuit and also took part in the All-Academic Basketball Camp. Highlights from both can be found below.
School: Cheshire Academy
Travel: Connecticut Elite National Team
Academics: 3.8 GPA & 1240 SAT
I would say that I'm a great shooter whether it be a 3-pointer or a mid-range, I can knock it down. I am a good passer as well, who can see open teammates and read the defense.
My greatest skill is making plays off of off-ball and on-ball screens. I love playing defense and getting stops. But most of all I'm a hard and dedicated worker who is in love with the process. I have been underestimated and know that nothing worth having comes easily.
What They're Saying
Luke Nieman (@nieman_luke) could possibly be the best shooter in the 2023 class at the moment. His feel for the game and shot making ability is unmatched.— Gorillaexposure (@gorillaexposure) May 15, 2021
He’s been torching the competition all weekend.
Luke Nieman (@nieman_luke ) was about as good as it gets today.— Gorillaexposure (@gorillaexposure) May 1, 2021
Scoring 20+ points in two wins for our 2023’ squad today. His pace, handle, and shot making ability is highly attractive to anyone watching.
Hands down one of the best shooters in the 2023 class. ����
Academic D3 coaches will love Miles Drake (@MilesDrake14) and Luke Nieman (@nieman_luke). Both guards play under control, defend and have range.— JP (@CoachJP00) April 26, 2021
D1s- I watched Mason Jackson (@mason_jack25) give hell this weekend. Scoring from all 3 levels and was a match up nightmare. https://t.co/5cbUPdotk1
