Tim Miles did not have to go far for the 2020 recruiting class. Today the Husker men’s basketball team added 6’5” 190lbs guard Donovan Williams as the first member of said class.
Donovan hails from Lincoln North Star and averaged 18.3 points and 2.7 rebounds per game during his sophomore season for the Navigators and should see that improve coming into his junior year.
It’s still early in his high school career and he should only improve with time. Right now he has had offers from UNO, University of Missouri-Kansas City, Bradley, and South Dakota.
