Before Tim Miles stepped foot on campus, the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers men’s basketball team had never snagged a top 150 recruit. Since his arrival, the Huskers have now added their third in the past year. Last year it was Jacob Hammond. He fell out of the top 150 in the final ranking, but he was there for nearly his entire recruitment.
Two weeks ago, the Huskers welcomed Andrew White III to the fold, a top 50 player in the 2012 class who originally signed with Kansas. Today, they add one more. Westchester, IL point guard Glynn Watson. Watson is considered the 71st best player in the country and the 11th best PG according to 247sports.com.
Watson is a skilled player who is able to create for his teammates as well as create his own shot when needed and defend. He made his official visit to NU this weekend, taking in the Huskers football game vs. Florida Atlantic. Over the weekend, he saw all he needed to see and pulled the trigger, making it official. Assistant coach Kenya Hunter led the recruitment effort of Watson.
Watson becomes the second commitment for the 2015 class, joining Michael Jacobson of Waukee, IA. The Huskers will still have two spots to fill, with one of their main targets Edward Marrow out of Chicago visiting the weekend of Sept. 19. Watson was also scheduled to take a visit to Creighton, held offers from Big Ten rivals Purdue, Maryland, Iowa and Penn St. Tennessee, Marquette and West Virginia had extended offers as well.
