Coach Tim Miles secured his first 2019 commit on Saturday evening as New Hampton (New Hampshire) School combo-guard Mika Adams-Woods announced his commitment to Nebraska on Twitter.
Adams-Woods, a native of Syracuse, New York, who played for The City Rocks on the AAU circuit, was originally a member of the 2018 class but chose to do a post-grad year and reclassify to 2019.
Nicknamed Shoestrings, Adams-Woods is 6-foot-2.5, 175-pound lefty lead-guard who can get in the paint to create for himself and others as well as knock down shots from the perimeter. He can hit jumpers off the dribble and has the vision to find open teammates. He averaged 19.8 points last season for New Hampton.
Adams-Woods also held offers from Georgia Tech, George Washington, Iona, Canisius, Charlotte, Manhattan, Quinnipiac, East Carolina, Massachusetts, George Mason, Nevada, Siena, Buffalo and North Carolina-Greensboro.
The Huskers offered him on July 23 and he took an official visit to Nebraska last weekend. New assistant Armon Gates is his primary recruiter.

With Glynn Watson Jr. and James Palmer Jr. entering their senior season, Nebraska needed a backcourt playmaker in the 2019 class and got one in Adams-Woods. Nebraska still has three more scholarships to fill in 2019 as things currently stand.
The Huskers are coming off a 22-11 season and will begin practice on Tuesday.
Jacob is in his third year with Hail Varsity covering Husker athletics. He has also written extensively for SB Nation’s Bright Side of the Sun and The Creightonian. His love of basketball can best be described as an obsession and if you need to find him, he’s probably in a gym somewhere watching, coaching or playing hoops.
