Thorir Thorbjarnarson is N!

Recommended Posts

I will call him "Thor" for obvious reasons. Robin Washnut likes this commitment. Says he is not just a three point specialist but likes to slash to the basket and shoot floaters or dish it off. He is 19 years old and has played against some of the top competition in the world for Iceland. Washnut says that Thor has a high basketball IQ and knows where to be in space offensively. He averaged 20 points per game in the 2016 U18 FIBA World Championships. He is 6'5 but didn't see anything regarding his weight.

Here's the money quote from Washut:

 

"Thorbjarnarson should also be an immediate factor for the Huskers in 2017-18."

 

That's pretty high praise and I wonder what he bases that on. Is that something Miles told him or is that based on what he sees in video and stats?  Or did a Rivals recruiting analyst evaluate him and give Washut that impression?  I have no idea.  I like the pickup but that's a bolder statement than even I would have been willing to make.

Maybe we can call him 'Thor the Terrible!  ( Or maybe 'Thor Le Terrib' in Jordy's parlance)

 

(Anything to help Kent out of a spot. :Lol:)

It might be an obvious comparison, but I see a poor man's Ginobili all over the place with this guy.  He's gonna make plays.  I'm not sure he'll play this year, but he might be the purest 2-guard on the roster.  I really like his motor from the film I see, and he has plenty of skill.  I'd call him a 3* and easily a D1 prospect from what I've seen.

The #GoHuskers hashtag is a tough way to be discovered. Maybe a #GBR will be tweeted in his near future.

 

Between Thomas Allen telling everyone to follow and some #Nebrasketball retweet action he's added 200+ Husker fans in the last day
