LINCOLN, Neb. - The first National Signing Day is almost in the book for college basketball and head coach Tim Miles announced his class late early Wednesday night.
“I’m extremely excited about our recruiting class,” Miles said in a release. “When you look at these three young guys and the addition of Andrew White, I believe the future of Husker basketball is in good hands. These are guys who are driven to win, highly competitive and very talented, and they want to be at Nebraska and help build a winner. That is exactly what you want as a coach.”
The head coach also talked about each recruit in the release.
“The Morrow legacy continues and we are truly excited about that. Nafeesah and Ed Sr. were both student-athletes at Nebraska, and Nafeesah had an outstanding basketball career for the Huskers,” said Miles. “Edward has such a great motor and a high ceiling. He is only going to improve and get better and better. He is a young guy who is dying to get better. He makes such an impact on the game, not only with his athleticism and his ability, but has a strong willpower. He runs the floor and rebounds, guards the opponent’s best player and make plays on the glass and in transition. I’m excited to have him in our program and help him become the player he wants to be. Being a part of Simeon Career Academy and being coached by Robert Smith and playing for the Mac Irvin Fire means he is among the elite. Simeon is one of the best high school basketball programs in the country, and Coach Smith will have him ready to play at this level.”
“Glynn is a true difference maker,” said Miles. “He is a playmaking point guard who knows how to make winning plays. He made numerous game-winning shots in high-level events on the summer circuit and really impressed me. Defensively, he has great hands and quickness. Offensively, he makes shots, makes plays and really has a knack to make his teammates better. Glynn played for the legendary Gene Pingatore at Saint Joseph High School, the same school that produced Isiah Thomas, Demetri McCamey and many other point guards. Playing at St. Joseph and for the Illinois Wolves program, we know he will be well prepared when he comes to Nebraska.”
“Michael is a highly-skilled player who played for a premier AAU program with the MoKan Elite,” said Miles. “He is well prepared by his high school coach Justin Ohl, who was a college player and coach. Michael has 3-point range, makes free throws and has a knack for rebounding and steals. He has great size and could be taller than we thought. His dad played basketball at UNO, so the Nebraska connection continues with the Jacobson family, and we are happy to have Michael join us.”
Scout.com ranks Nebraska’s class the sixth best class in the Big Ten. Watson, is the nation’s No. 62 overall player and No. 6 point guard.
Miles and the Huskers open their season on Sunday against Northern Kentucky.
