Nebraska basketball continue the strong momentum on the recruiting trail Friday, as they picked up a commitment from 2024 four- star shooting guard Nick Janowski. He made the announcement on Twitter.

Janowski is the 95th overall player in the 2024 class. He is the 21st overall shooting guard in the class, and the second overall player in his class from the state of Wisconsin per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.  He had offers from the likes of Georgia Tech and Iowa in addition to Nebraska.

What could he bring to Nebraska basketball?

Janowski is very solid in a variety of ways. For one, he does a good job of initiating contact on the drive. This allows him to get high percentage shots, and finish inside.

He also possesses a good mid-range game, and can pull up from mid-range with ease. Janowski is a knock-down shooter in every sense of the word, and his versatility in creating shots is a major part of his game.

He gives Nebraska basketball somebody that they can run an offense around. This is a bonus, as a Fred Hoiberg offense relies heavily on guard play. We have seen success with the transfer portal in terms of guard play for Nebraska basketball. Now, they have somebody that they can develop in-house.

This is a big get for the 2024 Nebraska basketball recruiting class, as it gives them a big-time recruitment for a program that needs to win right now. It will be interesting to see who else they can get in this class. With Janowski, they have an impact play maker that can score often.

Recruiting has never been a problem for the program, it’s been about results. Getting a player of Janowski’s caliber could potentially lead to good results. He is a player that could potentially play in the NBA, but not the type that could leave after the first year.  In that sense, he is a perfect fit for the program
