The Nebraska Cornhuskers basketball team isn’t done trying to upgrade the roster and ‘Mongolian Mike’ (Mike Sharavjamts) is one of the top targets.
Fred Hoiberg has seemingly had a very successful offseason when it comes to rebuilding a roster that lost its top players in Derrick Walker and Sam Griesel. He’s especially done a very good job considering he lost out on some of his top targets. It’s safe to say that landing Mike Sharavhjamts would be quite the cherry on the cupcake of this spring’s work.
The forward, who is a former Dayton Flyer is among the top uncommitted transfers left on the market. He also happens to be a former ESPN 100 coming into college. And wherever he decides to go, could potentially have three years of college basketball left to play.
Now it’s being reported that the man known as Mongolian Mike has narrowed down his targets and every time he thins the herd a bit, the Nebraska Cornhuskers stay among the teams he’s still considering. According to Jeff Borzello, the choices are San Francisco, Memphis, and the Huskers.
Nebraska Cornhuskers are on the list
Now that Mongolian Mike has narrowed down his list to three, the next step is going to be starting to take official visits and it certainly appears that the Huskers are going to get one of those visits.
Coming from Dayton, it doesn’t appear that the location of the school is going to be a big issue. It’s also worth noting that neither San Francisco nor Memphis are traditional “powers” anymore so the Nebraska Cornhuskers aren’t trying to outpace Arizona, Kansas, or North Carolina.
The Huskers are hoping that “Mongolian Mike” is going to be the kind of player that could take over Derrick Walker’s role, even if he can’t bang around the middle like Walker was able. The Nebraska Cornhuskers could certainly use another big man who can dish the ball and the 6-foot-8 forward averaged almost three assists a game despite his playing time be fairly limited at 23.1 minutes per contest.
