Late last month, the Nebraska Cornhuskers put out a key offer in the 2023 recruiting cycle. Fred Hoiberg and his staff decided to offer 2023 prospect Darrin Ames.
2023 Kenwood Academy (IL) G Darrin Ames has received an offer from Nebraska. https://t.co/vTNIvtl8Nh https://t.co/qFQQDd47wQ— Verbal Commits (@VerbalCommits) June 15, 2021
Ames comes out of Chicago, Illinois and is largely unrated by the national scouting services. However, he is attracting some serious midwestern attention and is listed at 6-foot-0 and 160 pounds by Verbal Commits. Along with Nebraska, he also has offers from Appalachian State, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan State, and Western Illinois among others.
Nebraska currently has no commitments in its 2023 recruiting class, but that could change soon with Hoiberg’s activity on the recruiting trail and the open spots available for the Huskers in the 2023 cycle. Of course, we will have to see if the Huskers can close the deal and since it’s still early in Ames’ recruitment, it could be quite some time. A potential commitment is likely more than a year away.
