Huskers officially welcome a two to men's roster

Thomas Allen (12), who prepped at Brewster Academy during the 2016-17 school year, signs with the University of Nebraska (NTV news)

Nebraska making it official with two incoming athletes to the men's basketball program.

One of them comes with an extreme amount of hype.

Thomas Allen, a 6–foot–1 guard out of Raleigh, North Carolina, is listed as a top–100 recruit by all the big sites (ESPN, Scout, and Rivals) and a four–star athlete from those same publications.

He's considered one of the best three–point shooting guards in the nation this year, something Nebraska desperately lacked a season ago.

Allen averaged 18 points in his senior season, while hitting on 48 percent of his tries from deep and 55 percent from the field.

He originally signed with North Carolina State during the fall of 2016 but re–opened his recruiting process when Mark Gottfried was fired.

The other is Duby Okeke, a graduate transfer from Winthrop University in South Carolina.

He's the Eagles career leader in blocked shots, and during his time at Winthrop, he's registered multiple swats in more than half of his 80 games played.

Okeke also having three occasions where he had at least four blocks in back–to–back games.

He was limited offensively, scoring 105 points in 33 games played as a junior with the NCAA qualifying Eagles.
