Nebraska got their man! Just days after his official visit to the Big 10 program Bolingbrook 2017 small forward Nana Akenten has informed us he has committed to the Cornhuskers. He told us why they were his choice.

“I chose Nebraska because I felt the most comfortable with their program & opportunity. My family also felt most comfortable with them. I prayed about it, and God answered.”

Akenten is one of the premier wing scorers in the state of Illinois. At his size he has a powerful and athletic perimeter scoring game. Big time jump shooter and plays above the rim in transition.

He ran with the Hoopers/Celtics on the NY2LA Association where he was one of the leagues leading scorers. The state’s #8 overall prospect is primed for a huge senior campaign with Bolingbrook.
