    A few things about Cross.
     
    As a Junior he was 2nd team all state and first team in class 5A.  His MaxPreps profile listed him at 6'6" 215#
    As a Senior he was 2nd team all state and first team in class 4A.  His MaxPreps profile listed him at 6'8" 240#
    (Arkansas: Biggest 16 schools = 7A, next 16 = 6A, next 32 = 5A, next 48 = 4A)
     
    His rankings on Arkansas Basketball Boys Rankings
    June 26, 2017: Not in top 25, not in honorable mentions
    Jan 9, 2018: Ranked #16 in the state
    Feb 14, 2019: Ranked #10 in the state
    April 30, 2019: Ranked #4 in the state
     
    One other thing: Pictured next to Kevin is his father who is approximately the same height as Kevin.  Are we absolutely sure he's stopped growing?

    Here’s a bit of information that lends legitimacy to their recruiting class:  according to Rivals, three of their recruits (a five star and two four stars) list Memphis as their hometown.
    That said, they have seven commits (again, according to Rivals): two five stars and five four stars that hail from such additional places as Florida, Mississippi and California.

    Again, key examples of classic nebrasketball 7 footers who arent who I'm thinking of. The safe guard against andre almiedas is that fred is pretty much exclusively recruiting guys who can run the floor. We need an athletic big like that. Like I said I'm pretty over the moon with the big bodies we got so far (especially since those 240# bodies will really help in big 10 play slog, given they stay in shape and take adv of our nba facilities and add muscle) 😉

    Sergej Vucetic was 7’1” and on our roster a few years back.
    If you are willing to go with 6’11” instead of a true 7 footer, you can pick up such notables on former NU rosters (according to Huskers.com) as, Kye Kurkowski, Jordy Tshimangs, Christopher Niemann and Jorge Brian Diaz.

    Watching a couple highlight videos, this kid reminds me a little of Ja Morant. Not afraid to drive inside, has some good handles and can shoot. The ball is going to move this year at PBA!

    This player is a Rivals three-star and an ESPN four-star.  Heck, with numbers like these, why isn’t he a five-star?

    You may be right, and if so, I hope that would be the reason. But, he’s a stunning athlete and I see the potential for him to develop a consistent and accurate three-point jumpshot. I could also see him being a lockdown defender able to guard the 1 through the 4. He’s worth giving an opportunity to, one that could pay significant dividends.

    Wednesday marks the end of the spring signing period for the 2019 class. Nebraska is not expected to add anyone else, which means the class will finalize with Cross, Western Nebraska Community College guard Jervay Green, Omaha Creighton Prep forward Akol Arop, Salt Lake Community College guard Cam Mack and French forward Yvan Ouedraogo.
     
    We're not going to add any non-transfers by the May 15th deadline. I'm unclear on the rules for signing current year kids....what happens if they commit after May 15th? Also, notice how this list doesn't include transfers/grad transfers.
  16. Thanks

    Omaha World Herald reports this morning, in its Kevin Cross story: “Nebraska is not expected to add anyone else.”  That’s new news, right?

    Hes 6'8/6'9 at 17, could still grow, and is chiseled 260 without having any long-term training in a Elite College weight room, and a summer in a conditioning program...yea i think this is really going to work and he's going to ready to roll next year Day 1, from a Rebounding and Defense standpoint with the offense coming as the season progress. Plus he could be 6'10, 6'11 by the season starting who knows. This is going to be a fun player. 
  20. Thanks

    The official tweet from Husker basketball is that he's 6'9" and weighs in at a chiseled two hundred and sixty pounds. Ho lee shizzle.
     
    C'mon, Brad Davison, take a charge. I dare ya.  I double-dog dare ya, you weenie.

    Isn’t it nice when you recruit an undersized 6’7” center and he shows up on campus at 6’9” and 260 lbs?  Normally works in reverse.

    How’s this for a hopeful / wishful theory:  the fact he’s announcing on Tuesday suggests that any academic eligibility issues have been favorably resolved?
