Rivals150 forward to the Big Ten

THE RIVALS150: 2016 | 2017
For the second year in a row, Tim Miles and Nebraska have recruited at least two players from the Rivals150.
The latest to jump on board with Miles and the Cornhusker staff is 6-foot-7 combo forward Jeriah Horne from Kansas City (Mo.) Barstow.
Ranked No. 129 in the 2016 Rivals150, Horne decided that he had seen enough after taking four of his five allotted official visits and seeing Nebraska last weekend.
"I took four of my five visits and with the info presented I felt like I had enough information to make my decision," Horne told "I've decided to select the University of Nebraska.
"I believe that the program will help develop me as a player, provide a valaubale academic experience, present a challenge and help me to become a responsible young adult."
A skilled four man who can take bigger players out on the wing and hurt them with his skilled shooting and passing or post up smaller defenders, Horne saw immediate opportunity with the Huskers.
"Nebraska's coach gives freshmen an opportunity," said Horne. "Although there is a transition from high school to college, I epect my work ethic, my size which causes mismatch problems, my ability to pass and my versatility to make the most of the opportunity that coach gives me.
"I plan to work on strength, shooting, explosivness and defense."
Now that he's got his decision out of the way, Horne is happy and ready to focus on his senior year. There's certainly a lot less outside noise to worry about.
"It feels quiet," said Horne. "My parents imposed a quiet period after my last visit and it's been quiet. I've been able to relax and think through my options. I'm ready to commit and think about school and my upcoming season. It's my last season and I want it to be a good one."
As mentioned already, Horne is the second Rivals150 player to pick Nebraska in 2016. The Huskers also hold a commitment from four-star small forward Isaiah Roby who ranks No. 104 nationally.
