The Huskers basketball team were given a bit of good news on the recruiting front on Saturday. They received the commitment of shooting guard Karrington Davis out of Monteverde in Florida. The 6’6” senior comes in right before Nebraska finds out where it will be playing in the post season.

Karrington originally played his previous two seasons at Chaminade College Prep in St. Louis where he helped lead them to a state championship his first year there. He decided to transfer to Montverde for his senior year to play for the national basketball powerhouse.
The transfer to Montverde has allowed him to be a part of the number one team in the nation this year and are currently sitting with a 32-0 record. Many of his teammates already have commitments to many major college basketball programs across the nation.
However, being around such great talent has lessened his playing time during the year. He also had a hip injury a year ago that most likely kept his playing time down.
As stated above, this makes the 2018 recruiting class and most likely fills it as all 13 scholarships for next season are now taken. He joins forward Brady Heinman from Platteview, NE and Guard Xavier Johnson out of Arlington, Virginia. Both of which signed with the Huskers back in November.
