As the Nebraska Cornhuskers Basketball season approaches, Tim Miles continues to impress.

Miles has added another sought after recruit to the 2016 list in the form of 6' 7" Forward Isaiah Roby.

Roby, who has visited Nebraska twice, committed to the Huskers earlier today. In an interview with Huskers Illustrated, Roby said "The coaches see me as a two, three or four, it depends on who I guard".

Roby will add even more athleticism to a team that looks to be loaded with future playmakers. Roby has the ability to score both inside and out, and can finish in traffic.

He is comparable to current Husker Walter Pitchford in the fact that he has all the tools, but will probably need to add a little size to reach his full potential.

Nebraska got it first win of the season against the Blue Jays, as Creighton had also offered Roby. Other schools who were interested were Bradley, Drake and Georgia. He had also recently heard from a few other Power 5 schools.

Roby joins small forward Keanu Pinder as the first 2 commitments of the '16 class.
