LINCOLN, Neb. – Tim Miles enters his fourth season as the head coach at Nebraska. The Cornhuskers have yet to win a NCAA tournament game, but for those who are patient, the program does appear to be heading in the right direction.
Miles and crew have assembled a roster of talent that on paper looks like it can compete in the Big Ten. The head coach has three former Scout.com Top 100 players on his roster, with another on the way in wing Isaiah Roby.

“We have been able to attract some talent. I don’t know how long they have been keeping track of stats, but it’s coming around to the way we need it to be successful in our league,” said Miles. “We could have six Top 100 guys eventually. And I think some of the guys we have brought in are extremely underrated.
The Huskers must now turn their attention to the center spot, where they have failed to land a difference maker in the last two classes.
“I called one of our assistants the other day and asked ‘is your passport ready?’ Honestly I don’t think you want to depend on junior college guys or foreign guys,” said Miles. “But at the same time, I think we have to go anywhere anytime to recruit.
“We have a chance for somebody in those areas to have a real impact in our program.”
