Nurse is now the 5th ranked player as per ISS. He's moving up the board very quickly and there's talk that he could go as high as two. Scouts are really falling in love with his game and the fact that he dedicated himself to concentrating on defense while Sproul and Miller handled the offensive side in the Soo and he still put up 40 points is viewed as big plus by scouts.
