Webster committs to Huskers
Brian Rosenthal, Lincoln Journal Star
Tai Webster was supposed to be Nebraska’s secret, but then something funny happened.
The New Zealand point guard, at age 17, made his country’s national team.
Then the 6-foot-2 Webster started scoring 20 points against teams like Greece and Angola in FIBA Olympic qualifying play.
Suddenly, Webster wasn’t a secret anymore And Nebraska assistant coach Chris Harriman, an Australia native who’d been in on Webster since Harriman was an assistant last season at Saint Louis, had a problem.
Several problems, really. Namely, LSU, Virginia, Pittsburgh, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, Saint Mary’s. All had caught notice of Webster and were honing in.
Webster offered an easy solution. On Tuesday, he committed to Nebraska, becoming a key member of coach Tim Miles’ 2013 recruiting class.
