After hosting Walter Pitchford over the weekend, Tim Miles and crew are getting ready for another big visit today.
Sean Sellers, a 2014 small forward from Indiana, arrived in Omaha last night and will be checking out Lincoln throughout the rest of the day according to his AAU coach Brian Keeton.
Sellers, a member of the Eric Gordon All-Stars 16U AAU squad, is being recruited by Nebraska assistant coach Chris Harriman.
"Sean is projected to be a three at the next level. What he does really well is he's a big-time shooter," said Keeton. "He can really hit shots. He's probably on our team the most efficient player. When I say that, it means he shoots high percentages, gets to the free throw line, he rebounds, and doesn't turn over the ball. He's really high on our list."
Despite his skinny frame of 185 pounds, Keeton says Sellers lives on the charity stripe.
"I bet he gets to the free throw line eight to ten times a game. He's really good with his ball fakes and can take the ball to the rack. He posts a little bit as well. We really let him do a lot for us," said Keeton. "We have talked to Indiana, Purdue, Butler, he's got a little Michigan State interest, although I think that has gone away. I don't think they are looking for a kid his size on the wing. Those are some of the bigger schools, of course there are a lot of mid-major programs looking at him."
Harriman's relationship with the Eric Gordon All-Stars has been a growing one. He recruited Cathedral high school small forward Jared Drew to St. Louis in the 2012 class, before taking the job with Nebraska.
"He's a great guy, with a very good personality. The transition has been really good from St. Louis to Nebraska and I think Nebraska is really going to benefit from him being there," said Keeton. "He's got a lot of Midwest ties. With Nebraska now being in the Big Ten, him being there at least makes them attractive for our kids. If they get an offer from Nebraska or go there, they are going to get to play in front of their parents a lot. That's important to guys."
Keeton says Sellers will be the squad's "guinea pig," with more recruits likely to follow on a visit in the coming weeks.
"I really want to get out there and see the place as well," Keeton said. "I know the facilities out there are first class.
"We have five to six kids they are actually looking at. I think I'm going to be able to get three or four of them before July out there. We also have some kids in our sophomore to be program that will also try to make it. We are going to buddy them up, but the problem is we also have to coordinator with the local high schools to make sure they don't have anything going on so we can get them there."
Other players Keeton mentioned as possible visits down the road was Bryant McIntosh, Keller's high school teammate at Greensburg high school. Zach McRoberts, brother of Los Angeles Lakers forward Zach McRoberts. In addition Sam Logwood and Jacob Johnson.
Big Red Report will have more on the following prospects in the coming days. In addition, we will check in with Sellers once his visit is over.
