OK, Gate 25. Gotcha.

Huggins was 30-35 (15-21) his first 2 seasons at WV Peral was 26-40 (9-27) his first 2 seasons at Auburn  Bennett was 31-31 (12-20) his first 2 seasons at Virginia  Drew was 17-40 (4-28

Get a grip man. They have only been here a little over a year and wanted to start from scratch. Miracles don’t happen overnight. If we are still striking out in a couple years we can talk.

Except that if he comes in at semester, he would either have to walk on, or a scholarship player would have to leave before the semester starts like we had last year with Samari Curtis.  

 

Its not like football because they are playing at in both semesters whereas football they can roll them back due to players that graduate in December.

 

So he could, theoretically, walk on/redshirt, get the system down in early '21, and then take over as the starting PG on scholarship in winter '21.  He could essentially shadow Webster.  

 

Whitt

McGowans

Allen

Banton

Lat

 

^^ that looks like the absolute perfect roster for a Hoiberg 5 out offense, especially with Tominaga and Lakes able to swap as 3pt specialists and Yvan, Stevenson, and Walker having big bodies ready to go.

Not sure how this affects things, but NU's 2020 fall semester ends Nov. 25 this season. Typically it ends in mid-December, and typically, mid-season transfers have been eligible on the day after fall semester ends.

 

I'm guessing with quite a few schools moving up the end of 1st semester, the NCAA may have to issue something regarding mid-semester guys. If they don't, with the delay in the start of the season, basketball is basically a one-semester sport in 2020-21 for a lot of schools.

EDIT: Looks like the council recommended yesterday that no mid-year transfers are eligible for the fall sports that are moving to spring. It wasn't clear if that applies to basketball and other winter sports that span two semesters.

Just FWIW here's a comment I read elsewhere:   :Redface:

 

Quote
As I understand it, he's leaving/left Brewster and going to college for Spring? Is it possible for him to get enough partial-semester credits to be eligible to join Nebraska in November in any capacity? Or will he try to greyshirt? He could sit out the season for COVID reasons at this point and still have 5 years of eligibility (I think).

I don't understand this decision, but will be happy if he's 'N'.

I'm wondering if they implement a 'no eligibility loss' this year in basketball, since the sport technically starts in the fall? If that's possible, he could finish whatever he needed to this semester, and join the team second semester, not using any eligibility, but gaining experience.

Jerry Meyer's Scouting report

 

Quote

Good length for a point guard. Average athlete, but has the frame to fill out and hold his own physically. Is a top of the line passer. Excels at the hook pass against the grain. Goes either direction equally well. Will get a little loose with the dribble at times, though. Keeps the defense honest with his shot but has room to improve as a shooter. Average at best defender, but is opportunistic and will compete for rebounds and loose balls.

 

Compared him to recent Gonzaga PG Josh Perkins

A couple of the big national recruiting guys for Rivals have submitted predictions for Whitt to land here.  Worth noting that these guys have a pretty high success rate when they place a prediction -- Eric Bossi is correct 95% of the time and Russ Wood 91%.  So safe to say we should be feeling very confident in our chances of landing this top notch point guard.

Discussion on the Virginia Tech message board about Carter:

https://247sports.com/college/virginia-tech/board/59428/Contents/carter-whitt-announces-college-decision-tomorrow--151755753/

 

Some chatter on a BC message board:

http://eagleoutsider.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=13661&start=5160

 

Couldn't find much (or any) talk about him on NC State, Wake Forest or Indiana message boards, as far as I know those are the main contenders for him.  Also, I didn't look up the scholarship numbers for any of those 5 schools so don't know if any of them have an open scholarship for him ATM.

Based on scholarship availability and a visit, I'd look at Indiana as a darkhorse. I think they still have 2 open for 2020. Don't count out hometown NC State either as it looks like they have one and have a pair of freshmen PG recruits.

 

Just off some twitter sleuthing i've done and our roster composition I like our odds.

Too many recruiting analysts are picking Nebraska for them to all be wrong.  He's coming here. 

 

You can *never* trust those 247 crystal balls though.  @hhcmatt makes some good points about Indiana and NC State and their scholarship situations.  I'd say this is one we'll be sweating out.

I'm not talking about 247's crystal ball because I don't consider 247 to be real recruiting analysts.  They do a nice job compiling data from actual analysts into one space, but they are still a conglomerator of analysis more so than analysts themselves. 

What tells me that this is a lock is that a bunch of the national recruiting analysts at Rivals all submitted picks for Nebraska, and those guys are very rarely wrong.  For them to all be wrong at the same time?  I guess that's possible (this is Nebrasketball, after all) but the odds are VERY strongly in our favor.  I'm not sweating this one.

I hope this opens the floodgates for some upper-level 2021 guys to commit. Sometimes it just takes that first guy to open the door.

According to Robin it sounds like Breidenbach could be a very good possibility and if we get him I'm sure they will save other scholly's for transfers.

 

Breidenbach + Whitt and I will be 100% satisfied.  Anyone else would just be icing on the cake.

      #Nebrasketball has offered 2021 four-star PF Wilhelm Breidenbach 6' 9" out of Santa Ana, California.

      Looks like we've offered a basketball scholarship to dual-sport athlete Terrion Arnold.  (#2 ranked Safety from Tallahassee, FL with offers from pretty much every football team in the country, including Nebraska hence the "S" in the thread title). ***UPDATE*** according to @hhcmatt it looks like he's a PG, so I have changed the thread title to reflect that.
       
       
      No basketball recruiting profiles that I can find so here are his football profiles:
