  2. You're right HB, I should have explained myself better. I should have wrote, for this new staff's first full season of recruiting at Nebraska instead 7 months on the job, opposed to last year.
  3. ProspectNation has weighed in on the Sam Haiby committment. Three 4 stars and one 3 star, I'll take that as a very good start for this new coaching staff on their first recruiting class! Could there be more added to this class yet we'll just have to and see as the summer progresses.
  4. She's heading to a team that has a roster that's usually always chalked full of good players, and year in and year out they're always at top of the Summitt League at the end. She's going to experience the highs and lows of being involved a race for the conference crown. Could take her a while to see the court on a regular basis though.
  5. Really like that this kid brings tons of athleticism to PBA. Here's to hoping that each of the new recruits keep themselves healthy and ready to hit the floor running when they get here.
  6. Sept 1st was the first time coaches could contact players in the 2018 class. Since the interest in the 18' class is starting to gain traction, our crack staff here at the HHC wbb went to work to gather what we could involving the 2018 recruiting interest with the new staff. The 2018 list is compiled mostly on the interest shown from recruits that have a real interest in attending NU. Some other factors are taken into account also. Now HHC lost a few sources somewhat close to recruiting with the previous regime but we have started to piece together a new list for the 2018 class. Keep in mind a few of the 2018 recruits were first recruited by the previous coaching staff, as a result some of those are still being recruited by the new coaching staff. As we find out on more recruits throughout the season and next summer being recruited by NU, we will add them to the big board. ______________________________________ Kayla Mershon (2018) 6’3 forward Kayla Mershon from Minnetonka High School in Chanhassen, MN. 3 star player who’s stock rose this summer on the AAU circuit. The Nebraska coaching staff has been recruiting her for quite some time now. Besides an NU offer she has an Iowa St, Iowa, Oregon, Arkansas, Drake and possibly a DePaul offer. Lots of other schools showing her interest, Utah, Wake Forest, Indiana, George Washington. What ESPN says about Kayla: Length, wingspan and mobility bring versatility; face-up game stretches the defense, triple-threat attack finds rim off the dribble; finesse-4 game yields results. Agile perimeter prospect with long frame stretches the defense to the arc; catches and finishes in traffic with finesse game in the paint; stretch-4 game with fundamental persona. Committed to Nebraska 2-19-17 ESPN Profile _____________________________________ Mia Lakstigala (2018) 5-9 3 Star guard from Central High School in Naperville, Ill. Just completed a breakout sophomore season where she averaged 14.0 points and 3.8 assists a game. "Mia showed such dramatic improvement, not only from February to November, but from November to March" coach Andy Nussbaum said. "I think still, for her, there's so much more potential there to tap. I thought she was one of the top three players in the league this year." Nebraska has been showing interest for some time now. She’s also receiving interest from plus a lot of other mid major schools. What ESPN says about Mia: Floor-leader with combo-game; handles and attacks under control in transition game; reads pressure, passes with purpose; smooth floor game brings offensive arsenal to the arc; executes in half-court game; a sleeper prospect in the class of 2018. ESPN Profile _______________________________________ Arieal Scott (2018) 5-10, 3 Star guard from Urbana High School in Urbana Ill.

What ESPN says: Smooth game manager handles, pushes tempo under control, distributes with court awareness; executes in half-court set; breaks down defender, penetrates and finishes plays; keeps thee defense honest to the arc. ESPN Profile _______________________________________ Liegha Brown (2018) 6'1 combo guard/forward out of DeKalb High School located in Waterloo Ind. Visited Nebraska the weekend of March 3.

Visited Nebraska 2-26-17. She's Also hearing from Louisville, Minnesota, Kansas State, Wake Forest, Creighton, South Dakota St plus many more. Haiby's natural athleticism is the first thing that jumps out at you on the court. She is very fast and has a good sense of the game, which helps her anticipate passes and rebounds. Haiby is one of the top hoop prospects coming out of Minnesota in the 2018 class. Her quickness and athleticism allows her to guard multiple positions, a major plus for coaches. ______________________________________ Tatum Veitenheimer (2018) 4 Star, 5-8 point guard out of Windthorst High School in Windthorst, TX. Very skilled with a high basketball IQ. Can hit the three. Nice midrange game. Can take the ball to the basket. Ultra competitor. Nebraska has been showing interest in her but that’s about it. Iowa St has been in on her since her freshman year as has Texas A&M. Oklahoma St, Oklahoma, UCLA, LSU and most all of the Division I teams in Texas are after her. Uconn, Tennessee and Notre Dame at one time or another were also showing interest.

She’s a guard who can shoot it and play some time at the point while defending multiple positions. Has visited South Carolina multiple times. Has offers from Minnesota, Nebraska, Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana, Iowa St, Wisconsin plus many more. Hopefully she chooses someone other than K-St, as they are trying to pull a questionable Ohio St. like recruiting tactic. What ESPN says: Smooth floor game with superior size in the backcourt; consistent mid-range game extends beyond the arc; among the elite guards in the 2018 class. Committed to k State ESPN Profile ______________________________________ Nia Clouden (2018) 4 Star, 5-6 point guard from St. Francis Academy in Owings Mill, MD. Ranked as the 12th best point guard by Hoopgurlz. Player with explosive athletic ability, a true scorer/slasher with a complete offensive game. Could be really hard to get her off the east coast. Has an offer from Rutgers and they now lead for landing her. Interest from UMass, Georgetown, West Virginia, Michigan, Temple, Nebraska. What ESPN says: Electrifying floor-leader with a scorer's mentality; explosive quickness, tough to contain, elevates in mid-range game, finds rim with regularity. ESPN Profile _______________________________________ Amaya Adams (2018) 3 Star, 5’10 wing from Notre Dame de Sion High School in Kansas City. Has a lot of length, upside and potential.

Has interest from Nebraska, Wichita State, Tulsa, Oral Roberts, Northwestern, Nebraska-Omaha, UMKC, and Pennsylvania Prospect Nation says: Adams has a lot potential to be a strong floor general and because of her size, be an impressive defender as well. Prospect Nation Profile ______________________________________ Payton Brotzki (2018) 4 Star, 5’10 guard from Platteview High School in Springview NE. A big summer on the AAU circuit has propelled this homegrown Nebraska kid to the number 36th ranked player in the ESPN 18’ class. 1st team Super State last season. One the top ranked players to come out of Nebraska this season. Tore her knee up in January of this year again as a result lots of schools are waning on their interest in her. The lack of major offers coming in now are most likely due to the acl injury she suffered her freshman season. She had a great AAU summer and has impressed many schools. More BCS offers will come her way the next year. Right now has offers from Illinois, Creighton, Omaha, S.Dakota St., FGCU and Pepperdine. In my opinion she’s anxiously waiting and hoping for that Nebraska offer. What ESPN is saying: Strong, physical, versatile perimeter prospect; triple-threat creator drives, delivers vs. contact; handles and attacks in transition; range to the arc, finds the rim, delivers at the charity stripe. Committed to Creighton 2-27-17 ESPN Profile ______________________________________ Audrey Warren (2018) 3-Star, 5-10 off-guard from Boswell High School in Fort Worth received an offer from Nebraska when the Nebraska staff paid her a home visit Thursday night.

She can be put in multiple positions on the floor and she showed she can bring the ball up in transition, play on the low block, and trail in the 4-position for late offensive perimeter shots.

ESPN is saying: Athletic off-guard brings size to the back court; delivers to the arc with consistency; handles and attacks in transition; emerging as one of the elite guards in the class of 2018.

  7. 5'10 guard from Dublin CA
  8. Contrary to what others have said or believe, I actually like how the 2018 recruiting class is coming together. Sure we need a big girl or two but that's what we need as of right now for this upcoming season. As far as I can tell this 2018 class has touched on the positions that will be critical two years from now and going forward from that season. We got one of our future big's out of Minnesota in Kayla Mershon 6'3 ProspectNation has her at a 4-Star and the 86th best player in the class. ESPN has her pegged as the 9th best post this coming year. Ashlyn Verbeek 6'2 (whom I'm really high on and many east of the Missouri River are now saying she could most likely the best player to come out of Iowa next season,) is playing with the All Iowa Attack this summer and is getting exposed to recruiting services, thus ESPN has given her a 4-Star rating and has her ranked now as the 5th best post in the nation and 50th best player in the whole class. ProspectNation has finally got her ranked as 3-1/2 Star Leigha Brown 6'1 hasn't been in front of too many recruiting services but from videos I've seen she's deadly from behind the arc. And her coaches are stressing that she's an excellent rebounder. For a team that has slipped to dismal debts lately, those three alone should come into NU in pretty good shape and improve the team going forward. I think there's room for another verbal in this class, but we'll just have to wait and see.
  9. Welcome to Husker Nation Leigha! Have a great senior season and come to Lincoln ready to dominate!
  10. Stay tuned guy's and gal's, sounds as though Leigha Brown's recruitment is happening faster than we can keep up with. Nothing official yet though.
  11. Would be nice if every school would release the actual game attendance figures instead inflated ones like Wisconsin, Purdue, and Michigan St. do.
  12. I don't think whether she can be trusted or not should have anything to do with it. These are the decisions any head coach and their staff make when you're at a power 5 division 1 school. Not everyone will agree with them but they're trying to do what's best for their program.
  13. Not exactly. All indications though are pointing toward Sam Haiby (the 5'9 swing guard out of Moorhead, MN) listed above, as being a silent commit. Right now she's juggling her time playing for the North Titan AAU team and the Moorhead baseball team. I believe it's just a matter of time that she announces. A few other D-1 schools have jumped on her bandwagon lately though, namely Iowa State and Wisconsin.
  14. From what little we have to go on and a few questions left to be answered, here's how I see the starting line up to unfold next November and why. G - Hannah Whitish 5'9 - sophomore to be, her ability to knock down the outside shot got better each game she played and her defense progressed as she became more comfortable on the court. Earned the starting role as the season progressed because of this. As she gets more comfortable in the system her defense and offensive out put should increase even more dramatically. One year in this system and the off season will help her immensely in all facets. G - Janay Morton 5'10 - red-shirt senior next season, has one key factor over the rest of the team that being experience. The kid has one year to learn the system by sitting on the sidelines and if you don't think that learning experience doesn't help just ask Kelsey Griffin. In each of her three seasons at Eastern Michigan Janay averaged 12.5 points or better hitting 38% from behind the arc plus she earned a spot on the MAC all defensive team her junior season. C - Rachel Blackburn 6'3 - red-shirt sophomore coming off a couple of surgeries. Extremely motivated to get back on the court. Should fit right in to the new system. Huskers can't afford to not have her on the court because of her height and the attitude she brings. Hopefully she can become more consistent on her jump shot from within15 feet. One draw back if she can get it under control, is staying out of foul trouble. Her intense play caused her a lot of unnecessary fouls her freshmen year. G/F - Nicea Eliely 6'1 - sophomore next season, proved last season without a doubt she needs to be on the court with her ability to excel in all facets of the game. Brings an up-tempo energy to the game for all 40 minutes. Should be able get more consistent with her jumper through out the off season. PG - Bria Stallworth 5'6 - sophomore next year, averaged 13 points as a freshman at UMass and 4 assists. Sat out learning the system last year. Anxious to get out on the court. Has the ability to drive the lane and dish ala Lindsey Moore. First few off the bench: sr-Jasmine Cincore, jr-Maddie Simon, fr-Taylor Kissinger I've got a pretty young line up with 4 sophomore's and a senior in penciled into the starting line up, that's how I see it now, Now my predictions could change should the Huskers sign a pretty good transfer this summer though. How do you guy's and gal's see it shaping up? Do you agree or not, don't be shy let the rest of us know.
  15. The person can only be physically gone but never the life lived and the memories shared. Have faith and be strong, Silver.
  16. Don't think she'll ever be without a job for too long. Her ability to recruit on a top knotch level should keep her employed for a quite a while..
  17. Former Husker basketball player Allie Havers is eager to ace her second sport Go get em' Allie!!
  18. She had a scholarship offer to South Dakota but no scholarship here at NU. I think she was hoping to get put on scholarship for next year, but when that didn't happen her and her family decided it may be in her best interest to go somewhere where it would. Schooling last season would have cost her parents some $20-$30 grand. The lure of free education vs her parents having to pay tuition again is most likely one of the main reasons of her transferring.
  19. Fairly good day yesterday in the WNBA draft for the Big Ten. Nia Coffee of Northwestern went at #5 to San Antonio, Shatori Walker-Kimbrough & Brionna Jones from Maryland went #6 to Washington and #8 to Connecticut respectably, Tori Jankoska from Michigan St. went at #9 to Chicago and Shayla Cooper of Ohio St. goes at #11 also to Connecticut. No other player from the conference was selected. Kelsey Plum from Washington was the overall number one pick.
  20. Surely they could afford to reach into that pot of $110 million and buy some fescue and have a few students spread it all over the Ryan Stadium football field in hopes to have a green field next season.
  21. I just don't think the parents have much room to push their weight anymore with any coach now that Lanie is running out of eligibility. Once she lands at some other school she'd better stay there, every move that they think is in her best interest from there on out, will hinder her chances of playing what she has left now eligibility wise. I don't think right now they have any plans on sending her to DII.
  22. Definitely, the beef before was with Yori not Coach Williams and her staff. I'm hearing some contact may have already been made but nothing substantial. The Page's number one goal is that they're looking for a team that Lanie would get ample playing time and right now Nebraska offers as much as any other team willing to take her on. Plus the fact they could watch her play relatively easily.
  23. Great game to be at. Even though I got a little chilly sitting out there last night Jake's pitching kept me warm enough to make it through. It seem's as though if we can get a little movement on our pitches they have a hard time hitting it squarely. When there were fastballs right down the middle they connected with good swings but most were hit where they didn't do too much damage.
