Husker hoops gets commitment from 2019 guard
Mika Adams-Woods, a three-star guard from Syracuse, New York, announced his verbal commitment to the Nebraska men’s basketball team Saturday.
The left-hander is rated as the No. 34 point guard in the nation by Rivals.
Dreams Do Come True! 🙌🏽Thank you to all the coaches that have recruited me throughout this process, family, and teammates who stuck by my side through the ups and downs. I am happy to announce that I have committed to the University of Nebraska#GBR #HuskerNation 🔴⚪️ pic.twitter.com/TxXoFFer0q — Shoey 👟 (@_egb23) September 22, 2018
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Adams-Woods chose Nebraska over Nevada and Massachusetts, among others.
Adams-Woods played at the New Hampton School in New Hampshire last season. New Hampton is in the same league as Brewster Academy, which has produced current Huskers Isaac Copeland and Thomas Allen.
Husker assistant Armon Gates was the lead recruiter on Adams-Woods. The guard took an official visit to Nebraska last weekend and was on the sideline at Memorial Stadium for the Troy football game.
Adams-Woods averaged 9.2 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game in 16 contests this summer on the Nike EYBL circuit, shooting 52 percent from the field and 44 percent from three-point range for the City Rocks (New York) AAU squad.
Those numbers came despite being limited by what he told the Syracuse Post-Standard was a “leg contusion” that slowed him down much of the summer. He averaged 19.2 points per game for New Hampton as a junior.
Adams-Woods can make things official with Nebraska starting Nov. 14, which is the beginning of the early signing period.
Nebraska has three open scholarships remaining in its 2019 class.
