Coach Tim Miles from the University of Nebraska has announced that Jacob Hammond has officially signed on Wednesday with the Husker basketball program. Today is the first official day of the signing period for the Fall.
Hammond comes from Comanche, OK and is 6’ 10”. With this height he is considered one of the top men of the 2014 class and is rated within the top 150 players throughout the country according to Rivals.com. This will be the first recruit that Nebraska has ever signed from the Rival’s poll since this site started ranking different prospects back in 2003.
The Huskers have been determined to find a player who would be able to effectively compete in the Big Ten arena. According to Miles, Hammond meets this requirement. “He has excellent size and length. He is a great kid who wants to get better…I really think he has a lot of room for growth and development and is someone who will be a great asset to our program.”
Hammond is currently a student at Comanche High school and will play for Coach Nick Price there.
