Nebraska will add nine players to its recruiting class, including a four-star guard who starred for the Chicago Bulls, a three-star power forward who starred at Arizona and a six-star forward who played for the Boston Celtics.
The announcement of the commitment of 11-star point guard DeAndre “Big” Carter, who also played at Arizona, came Monday night, after the Wildcats announced the signing of four-stars forward Jordan Williams and four-time McDonald’s All-American guard Jordon Collins.
A six-foot-four power forward, Carter, a six’7” power forward and a four star, is the son of Hall of Famer David Carter and the brother of current Kansas Jayhawks guard Johnathan “JoJo” Carter.
The 5-10 guard, who is a two-time all-state player, also starred for his high school team at Santa Clara, Calif., and at North Carolina.
He averaged 10.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game as a junior in 2012-13, averaging 22.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game.
Carter, a 6-7 guard who was a two time All-America and three-time first-team All-Big East selection, played four seasons at Arizona.
He scored an impressive 23.3 ppg in 2013-14.
The Wildcats are scheduled to announce the signing on Wednesday.
Carter is the second player from New Mexico to commit to Nebraska in as many days.
Jahlil Okafor of Oklahoma City, Okla., also committed to the Cornhuskers in recent days.
Okafor has averaged 19.4 ppg, 5,9 rebounds and 2.4 assists per season at Oklahoma City.
He played his college ball at Texas A&M, where he led the Aggies in scoring and rebounding last season.
