Well, in one week we get a new assistant coach and a guard for for the 2018 class. You never know how one week will change your viewpoint on a program.

Toay, 6’5” guard Amir Harris announced his commitment to the Nebraska program. Just a few days after coach Tim Miles hired on new assistant Armon Gates.

Amir comes to us out of Hagerstown, MD where he played for St. Maria Goretti High School. The guard is currently rated with 3 stars from, ESPN and 247. The Huskers beat out the likes of Auburn, Rhode Island, DePaul, George Mason, and Oklahoma State for his services. He was previously committed to Rhode Island but has garnered more attention throughout this past year and decided to look around.

Harris is known as a passing guard and shooting isn’t his strong suit. His defensive skills are above average and could fit well into Mile’s system here at Nebraska. Amir is also known for his presence and leadership on the court.

This is a nice get for the Husker after the decommitment of Xavier Johnson from the program just a few weeks ago. It wasn’t looking too good for Miles and his program back then. However, it’s amazing what can happen in a months time.

Welcome to Nebraska Amir!
