Webster Officially in the Fold

Tai Webster has signed his Letter of Intent and is now officially a Husker. - David McGee/CN

Heralded Husker hoops recruit has made it official, the LOI is in and Tai Webster is now a Husker.

Brian Rosenthal of the Journal Star is reporting that four star guard, Tai Webster has now officially signed and is locked into being a Husker.

Webster did not officially sign his LOI when the early signing period began, instead waiting to see the program and school for itself. There is a loop hole in the NCAA by laws that allow for the LOI to be submitted within three weeks of signing day. Apparently, Webster did just that with the appropriate witnesses and saw what he wanted to see on his visit. He certainly got the royalty treatment during Monday's win vs. USC. The student section broke out into chants of "We want Webster!" several times waving New Zealand flags. Webster and his family, who were sitting just two rows behind the Husker bench flanked by Husker hoops legend Erick Strickland and were clearly enjoying the moment.

This recruit is being heralded as the player that has eluded the Nebraska basketball program for some time now. Husker hoops fans still cringe at the mention of players like Roburt Sallie, Christian Standhardinger and Joe McCray, three previous players thought to be the guy to take Nebraska basketball to the next level. Rated a four star guard by several recruiting services and also one of the up and coming players in the New Zealand national program having played in the olympic quaifying event in Brazil at the age of 17. Webster more than held his own going up against teams that featured rosters littered with professional players.

Webster graduated from the New Zealand equivalent of high school recently and could join the program as soon as the upcoming semester break, though it is more likely that he would join the program in the fall.
