      Former Miami Hurricane James Palmer picks Nebraska, citing the recent success of Terran Petteway and Andrew White III transferring into the program. He's spend a year redshirting with 2 left to play.
      Palmer, a 2014 high school graduate, was a Rivals Top 100 four star from the DC area.

    Miami transfer James Palmer told @CBSSports he will visit Temple at the end of April & Nebraska in May. Cincinnati, Cal, & UW also in mix.

    Position: Guard

    Height: 6'5"

    Weight: 202

    Year: Sophomore

    Hometown: Washington, D.C.

    High School: St. John’s College HS

     

    I think that's a misprint.

     

    It says he's 6'5".  I think it should say he's 6'10.5".  Right?

    Does he get his own thread on the recruiting board, though? 

     

    Eh...let's just swing it on here.

    A better question is "How does his shot look?"  Just read on a Miami board that it looks like there is a hitch in his shot.

    Yeah, this likely should land in the recruiting thread.  But that said, I am not sure we are in the market for a 6'5" guard UNLESS he is a major difference maker. We have a much "bigger" need at this time.

    Video looks OK.  Not the best angle.

    i'd be ok with this addition. a former top 100 player that didn't get much playing time on a very good miami team.

     

    tai and white are both seniors, so we are going to need guards.

    I don't notice any glaring issues with his shot. I'm not sure about the hitch that Miami fans are talking about. It looks pretty smooth to me!

    I don't understand why you guys are so worried about what position guys are. You take good players if they want to come. We're working hard to get a big man, we'll either get one or we won't - still have to have quality skill position guys to score the basketball.

    Sorry, that's not going to cut it anymore.  It's essential Miles lands a solid center this year for our team's future and his future as the head coach of Nebraska.  If he doesn't...things will likely stay status quo with us hovering around the bottom of the league.  If we land Palmer...great, but it's not going to help us any this upcoming year.  If we could land someone like Palmer and a big to help next year that would be ideal.  Striking out again on landing a big and carrying over a scholorship(again)..will not be a good look.  It's time to get it done.

    You can't necessarily work things in a tidy timeframe like that though. Let's say we have a transfer big and a Jordy that we think are likely to come here.  Should we just sit around or should we schedule a guy in May on the outstanding odds that guys haven't made up their minds and we have nothing locked down until it's locked down. If we sign Jordy first and think we need/have a big man transfer coming, then you tell Palmer no thanks.

     

    We haven't used all of our scholarships yet; bring in 5 more top 150 guard transfers please.

    Maybe Miles has given up on the true center and is planning on getting ahead of the curve on "small ball".

    I personally think our roster is set up pretty good for the switch.

    We need a few more top-notch shooters for that to be the case.

    Oh no I agree...I don't have any issues with bringing Palmer in for a visit.  I just don't see how we can go another year with Miles not landing a solid big man.  Atleast one of the two remaining scholorships needs to go to a big man...and hopefully a big man that can help right away.  Hopefully by the time Palmer even visits we have that guy locked up.

    Can "small ball" be successful on the Big Ten? Offensively...I think we probably could be.  Defensively? Unlikely.  That was very evident last year.  Due to our lack of size we had to constantly double down...leaving wide open three point shots.  That's not going to work.  We need a rim protector in the worst way.
