    I have no idea if we have an actual shot at landing him, but I feel like we have next to zero chance. This coming season should be super interesting.

    Not sure I quite understand this one. I’ll be interested to see how he has developed offensively in AAU ball and this winter at Prep.

    Here is some more information from the OWH by Mike Sautter (a name I'm seeing more and more often), whose beat is Nebraska HS Basketball, regarding the two new Nebraska MBB Offers, Akol Arop (2019) and Donovan Williams (2020).

    Nebraska basketball extends offers to Creighton Prep's Akol Arop, North Star's Donovan Williams

    Exciting to see this. In the OWH article linked by Red Don, it said that he's had an outstanding two weeks against top players. He's very athletic, and Sautter said his shooting has gotten much better. I hope the sourness between Aguek Arop and Tim Miles doesn't affect his recruitment.

    Nebraska has offers to Akol Arop('19), Donovan Williams('20), and Chucky Hepburn ('21). Missed out on offering Shereef Mitchell. I'm guessing there's a "preferred walkon" offer for Jace Piatkowski, but he could play into a scholarship offer possibly. Offering one in-state guy a year seems like a step in the right direction if they are talented enough. Is there anyone else out there that they might offer?

    Pulling out the big guns. Akol looks a good 3" taller than Scott Frost. I hope he is excited about UNL, it would be cool to get a good player from in state (finally).

    Yes, I mean besides Heiman. I like Brady. I guess I'm giving Arop the benefit of the doubt but not Heiman. I think Heiman might be a role player in a year or two. I hope he surprises me. Arop I think would be a role player day one. :)
