Seward County Community College point guard Deverell Biggs is the first commitment in the Tim Miles era. The former Omaha Central standout averaged 14.61 points per game this year, with just over 3.1 assists a contest. Seward went 31-7 on the year.
"The team and coaches are wonderful. This is a good sign for me and it's an easy choice for me to. It's just been great," said Biggs after his official visit this weekend. "To finally get to meet him (Coach Miles) face-to-face was nice. I get the impression I could talk to him about anything. He's a straight up guy. He likes to talk to you. He seems like he has everything established and has a plan. He definitely knows what he wants. He keeps you alive with his jokes and he's a guy that you seem like you would want to work with."
So what does the junior college transfer bring to the table?
"I'm not a cocky person, I'm a humble guy, but very confident in what I do. I can do it all I really feel," said the JUCO star. "Whatever you put in front of me, I can do. I was always a scorer in high school. But now I can play defense, I learned from some of the best JUCO basketball coaches in the country. I bring leadership, scoring, defense. It doesn't matter."
Biggs was accompanied on his visit by both his mom and dad, who also had glowing remarks.
"She's loved it. She can't wait to buy Husker gear. My dad is loving it as well. We have been talking about it and they are loving the whole thing – facilities, the people I would be surrounded by, and the academics."
Biggs was named a junior college All-American last week. It will be the second straight Nebraska class featuring a player with the honor, as forward Dylan Talley was named an honorable All-American in the 2011 class.
