Nazeer Bostick originally committed to Penn State on April 30, 2015 after being recruited for nearly two years by Keith Urgo and Dwayne Anderson. Bostick received an offer from VCU just a few days before committing to the Nittany Lions, and also had offers from Drexel, Hofstra, and Delaware.

Bostick has played with a number of Penn State recruits through the years. He began his high school career at Math, Civics & Sciences in Philadelphia with current Penn State freshman Mike Watkins (who later transferred to the Phelps School). Bostick transferred to Roman Catholic High School (former home of current Penn State sophomore Shep Garner) before his junior season, winning the state championship with Penn State commit Tony Carr. This season, he will be playing as a senior alongside Carr and fellow Penn State commit Lamar Stevens, who transferred to Roman from the Haverford School in suburban Philadelphia.

Bostick is an extremely athletic shooting guard with strong defense and rebounding ability. His nickname at Roman is "Horse," due to his tenacity in both of those areas. His offensive game is a work-in-progress, but he will not be relied upon for scoring when he arrives on campus and will have time to develop those skills. He can draw contact heading to the rim, but could stand to improve his free-throw shooting to make teams pay for fouling him. And while it may not be wholly relevant for play in the Big Ten, Bostick can dunk over very tall police officers.
