The State of Nebraska’s No.1 high school basketball player, South Sioux City guard Mike Gesell, verbally committed to University of Iowa, on Monday.
Gesell cited his belief in Hawkeyes head basketball coach Fran McCaffery and his desire to play point guard at the college level as the main reasons why he chose Iowa over several other D-1A programs that offered.
Nebraska, Creighton, Iowa State, Drake, Utah, Stanford and Northern Iowa are the other D1-A programs that have reportedly made offers to the South Sioux City High School senior-to-be.
Baring injury or any other calamity, I expect to see this kid to make his presence well-known around the Big Ten.
