The worst-kept secret in Nebraska men’s basketball became public knowledge on Sunday morning.
That’s when former Omaha Central all-state guard Deverell Biggs told new coach Tim Miles he wants to be a Husker. When Biggs signs his letter of intent later this week, he will be the first in-state scholarship signee at NU in 10 years.
The most recent in-state signees were for the 2002-03 season: Wes Wilkinson of Grand Island and Jason Dourisseau and Roy Enright of Omaha Burke.
Biggs was a first-team All-American this season at Seward County (Kan.) Community College, where he averaged 14.8 points and 3.3 steals a game.
Said Biggs: “It was a real great weekend. I am a Husker.”
