Donovan Williams is a three-star shooting guard from Lincoln Nebraska and is the first basketball player from the Lincoln Public Schools to commit to Nebraska since 2001. Williams chose Nebraska over offers from programs such as Bradley, UMKC and Omaha. While Nebraska is the only major program in that list, Williams entered the summer with zero offers and managed to pick up six after an impressive run on the AAU circuit this offseason.
The 6’5” guard is considered to currently be one of the top 2020 prospects from Nebraska and is a big get for Tim Miles and the Cornhuskers. This past season Williams averaged 18.3 points per game as a sophomore.
“It meant so much that the coaches believed in me and I was their main priority out of all the recruits right now and it’s just home,” Williams said when discussing why he committed to Nebraska. “The coaches are great. The City is great. I just want to put on for everybody honestly.”
