Tim Miles has done it again. The Nebraska basketball program received a verbal commitment from point guard Glynn Watson of Westchester, Illinois. He had just left Lincoln after an official visit this past weekend.
Glynn Watson is an impressive pickup for Tim Miles’ Nebraska program. A capable scorer, he makes great decisions with the ball in his hands.

Watson is a 2015 commitment and joins Michael Jacobson of Waukee, Iowa as known commits for the next recruiting cycle.
He’s ranked as the as No. 76 prospect overall. He also holds the current titles of No. 11 point guard and No. 4 prospect in the state of Illinois.
This is an outstanding grab for Miles and his coaching staff with Kansas transfer Andrew White also in the fold for 2015. When Watson lands in Lincoln, he’ll be competing against Tai Webster and Tarin Smith at the point guard position.
At this time, with Webster’s performance in the FIBA World Championships (13.5 PPG, two rebounds, one assist) it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the New Zealander shift to more of a two guard in favor of Smith and Watson at the point.
The new commitment had offers from Creighton, Marquette, Iowa, Maryland and Purdue among others.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Nebrasketball commitment had an official visit scheduled with Creighton on September 4. It is unclear if that visit is still on or not, but I would guess Miles might make a suggestion.
