Nichols placed Pitt in his top six schools back in May, along with Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, Cincinnati and Kentucky. Nichols placed these schools over Notre Dame, Boston College, Duke, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, Alabama, Ole Miss, Missouri, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Illinois, Michigan State, Purdue and Wisconsin and West Virginia.
Nichols plays for Withrow High School in Cincinnati, Ohio and stands at 6-foot, 180 pounds. He is a consensus four-star, with 247Sports ranking him as the No. 284 player in the country (No. 23 cornerback and No. 9 player in Ohio in his class). Rivals gave him a 5.8 rating, No. 10 player in Ohio and No. 33 at his position in his class, respectively, while On3 has him at No. 188 in the nation (the No. 26 cornerback and No. 7 player in Ohio in his class).
He recently visited Pitt back on June 11 and spent time with defensive coordinator Randy Bates and secondary coach Archie Collins. Nichols also took visits to Kentucky Penn State and Michigan in June.

If Pitt landed Terhyon Nichols’ services, he would be one of the top recruits in the class of 2024. Nichols would also become the fourth defensive back to join the class, along with fellow Cincinnati High School star Tayshawn Banks, Allen Bryant from Florida and Davion Pritchard from Youngstown, Ohio. Three-star athlete Nigel Maynard from Tennessee is also likely to play for Pitt as a defensive back, making it a potential five defensive backs in this class.
