Lost in the excitement of a big month of June for the football team recruiting wise, Nebraska basketball is also at work.
On Wednesday, 2017 Sequoyah high school (GA) shooting guard Jordan Usher visited campus. He left with an offer.
“I have just been waiting for it to happen,” said Usher. “It feels great. I knew they were really interested after they saw me earlier in the recruiting period. I sort of knew it was coming, but it felt great to finally get it.”
The 6-foot-5 talent says he was contacted by Coach Miles on June 15, but his relationship with new Nebraska assistant and former Florida coach Rashon Burno goes back much further. Burno recruited the Georgia product while he was with the Gators.
“From what I have heard, I think this offer will really start the process of more offers,” said Usher. “I would describe myself as a multi-guard. I’m skilled and athletic. I’m really good at scoring the ball from anywhere. During my sophomore season, I averaged 23 points and eight rebounds. I’m good off the pick and rolls, a good slasher.”
Usher described his visit to Scout.com.
“It was great. The facilities were crazy. I didn’t expect it to be honest. It was really nice to see the place,” said Usher. “Nebraska is sort of new to the Big Ten, so I didn’t really expect the facilities to be as top notch as they are. They are easily one of the best in the country.
“Coach Miles is awesome. He’s full of energy. He’s really a good guy. I like him a lot.”
