No Surprises on Signing Day For Tim Miles...Yet.

New, 1 comment

Tim Miles has most of his first signing class in the fold on this first signing day as Husker head man. Tai Webster waiting to come on his official visit before turning in his paper work.

Tim Miles signed guards Nick Fuller out of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin and Nathan Hawkins of Garland, Texas. Both are guards that have some scoring ability come from successful high school programs.

Fuller is a 6' 6" guard/forward combo player and three year starter for Sun Prairie High School which is located just out side of Madison, WI. He is a three star rated player by nearly every recruiting service and was named to the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association first team last season. His team fell just short of the state playoffs last season. He led his team in scoring with just over 25 points and 8 rebounds per game. Fuller chose Nebraska over several schools including Minnesota, Creighton, Marquette and Colorado.

Officially a Nebraska Cornhusker! Feels great!

Hawkins will be entering his fourth year on the varsity for Rowett High. He is also a consensus three star player and considered as one of the better shooting guards in this years class. He averaged nearly 13 points and five rebound a game. He chose Nebraska over schools such as Kansas State, UTEP and Oklahoma State.

Signing day with my brothers its been a long time coming. So many hours in t

The player everyone has been talking about this class, however, is Tai Webster. The New Zealand standout has not yet sent in his letter of intent. He is instead waiting until his visit on December 3 for the USC game (a game that Nebraska basketball might like to see a few extra fans make their way to the Devaney Center to take in the game). Nebraska basketball fans know how this ends. In the past, it hasn't been well. While, the liklihood of Webster signing somewhere else, the mere fact that he hasn't done so yet, will undoubtedly be disconcerting to die-hard Nebrasketball fans who have visions of Joe McCray, Roburt Sallie and Christian Standhardinger dancing in their heads. While there is some certainly a significant amount of wisdom in Webster's delaying of his submitting of his LOI, Husker fans spurned in the past will wait with eager anticipation as they anticipate the finality of his visit.

One other note that isn't at all surprising, Omaha Central power forward Akoy Agau did officially sign with Louisville.

The only real surprise is that Coach Miles did not tweet anything about signing day. At least not yet.
