Nebraska Wesleyan University head men’s basketball coach Cam Schuknecht has released the names of eight recruits who plan to compete in basketball at NWU in 2009-10.
The recruiting class includes six players from Nebraska, one from Iowa and one from overseas. Highlighting the class are three players that earned Nebraska All-State honors. Brett Potter was a key member of the Class A State Championship team at Creighton Prep and earned honorable mention All-State, while Ryan Longacre from Millard West was also a Class A honorable mention All-State performer. Spencer Fahey from Grand Island Central Catholic was named to the Class C1 Second-Team All-State team.
The NWU men finished the 2008-09 season with a 10-15 record in Coach Schuknecht’s third season. The Prairie Wolves lost just one senior off the 2008-09 squad and are expected to return four starters from the team. Nebraska Wesleyan will open the 2009-10 season on Nov. 20-21 when they travel to Jacksonville, Illinois for the Bill Merris Tournament.
