After dwelling over multiple offers, 2019 Point Guard Mika Adams-Woods has narrowed down his list to eight teams, with the Nebraska Cornhuskers being one of them.
Nebraska remains as the only Power-Five Conference team left, with the other seven being Nevada, George Mason, University of Massachusetts (UMASS), Siena, Buffalo, UNC-Greensboro, and East Carolina University. However, Adams-Woods has only named official visits to Nebraska, UNC-Greensboro, George Mason, and UMASS.
Adams-Woods transferred out of his first high school, Bishop Ludden, after he was given the opportunity to play in the New England Prep High School League. Every college is recruiting him as a traditional playmaker point guard, who has a good enough outside shot to make his presence felt in a tough league like the Big Ten.
The Cornhuskers will need another point guard like Glynn Watson Jr. after this season, as Watson enters his senior year this season. While the Huskers have guards Thomas Allen and Amir Harris right now, who knows if they will reach the potential they’re capable of reaching. Adams-Woods understands he needs to become a leader too, as he tells Syracuse.com,
“Now, it’s just reading the little things on the court, the small details, and being a leader on the court - that’s the most important thing. As a point guard, you gotta be a leader. And every day, it’s just working in the gym. Back at school with Coach (Nick) Whitmore, we all are working.”
Glynn Watson is the perfect example for what Adams-Woods wants to be, coming in as a potential leader at point guard, getting some time as a Freshman, then becoming a captain by Sophomore year. That could be a good goal for Adams-Woods to set, but that may be much easier to do at a school like UMASS or George Mason. Big Ten opponents thrive on Freshman mistakes as well, so Adams-Woods has a lot to think about when choosing a school this upcoming fall.
