Sadler gets his point

It's supposed to be the start of football season, but commitments in any sport are always good news and Doc Sadler and his assistants scored a big one yesterday. A big time point scoring point guard said yes to the Huskers after seeing Nebraska last year and considering his other options. Why were the Huskers the best fit for this 2013 point guard?

Doc Sadler and Nebraska are on the board with one known commitment for the 2013 class. I.J. Ready from Little Rock (Ark.) Parkview High School committed to the Huskers just yesterday.

"Yes sir I verbally committed to Nebraska yesterday," Ready said. "I had other offers, but I was really just considering Nebraska, Texas A&M and Arkansas. Arkansas didn't offer me though."

Ready is going to just be a junior, but already he has accomplished quite a bit at the prep level. Last year as a sophomore Ready led his team to a state title.

"I averaged 17 points per game last year along with seven assists and five rebounds. I do whatever I need to do to help my team win. I can penetrate, I can look for my shot and do a little bit of everything."

Ready said that he has been playing AAU basketball this summer with the Arkansas Hawks. "I have been averaging closer to 25 points per game this summer in AAU."

The Huskers seemed to be the best fit for Ready from the coaches to the current facilities to the proposed facility upgrades that were announced for the Bob Devaney Sport Center.

"I really like the coaches at Nebraska. I had a chance to watch Nebraska on television a lot last year and I thought that I fit in well with what they want to do on the court.

"I was also up in Lincoln last September and I had a chance to stop in and see their facilities. They were already pretty nice, but I know that they are getting ready to do some renovations."

Ready said that he is going to look at the football schedule and use that as a reason to set up a visit around so he can see Nebraska again. He said that he had his eyes set on the Ohio State game in early October.
