New head coach Tim Miles has landed his first Nebraska commitment since taking over the position back in March. Steward County CC (KS) point guard Deverell Biggs made his verbal pledge to the Huskers Sunday, choosing them over Oklahoma State, Southern Miss and Utah State.
Biggs is a Nebraska-native that played his prep ball at Omaha Central. He returns to his home state as a junior ready to make an immediate impact on the new look Cornhuskers.
Miles’ 2012 class is now three men deep, as Biggs joins Kansas City high school prospects Shavon Shields and Benny Parker. Before previous head coach Doc Sadler was fired, he had signed three other JUCO prospects. All three of those players have been released from their commitments to the University.
Getting the first commitment is crucial for any new head coach. It will be interesting to see if any of Miles’ recruits from Colorado State will make the switch over to Nebraska, as he still has several available scholarships. CSU has signed letters from Texas SG Jordan Mason and Chicago PG Jermaine Morgan (Whitney Young). According to HuskerOnline.com, Morgan wants out of his letter to CSU and has expressed interest in following Miles to Lincoln.
