Four-star recruit Pryce Sandfort sees fit with Nebraska basketball | Men’s Basketball

Bryce Sandvoort’s parents still keep the photos.

Sandvoort is 5 or 6 years old. He’s at a basketball camp in Iowa, posing with Fred Hoiberg.

Hoiberg saw the photos at the Sandforts home in April. This camper is now a four star recruit at Waukee (Iowa) High School.

“I was a huge fan of Hoiberg,” Sandvoort told the Omaha World Herald last week. “So it’s great that he’s recruiting me now.”

Sandvoort spent last Wednesday exploring Lincoln with Hoiberg as his guide. During his casual visit, Sandfort toured the Pinnacle Bank Arena, checked out one of NU’s summer practice and played golf with Hoiberg and his son Charlie.

Sandvoort said that Fred outstripped him by six strokes.

“It was very windy there,” Sandvoort said. “I will blame it on that.”

The 6-foot-6, 160-pound frontman connects with Hoiberg via shared interests. Like golf, three-point shooting has backgrounds in Nebraskan. Sandvoort’s father, like Hoiberg, was born in Nebraska – Holdrej, to be exact. My dad grew up as a big football fan in Nebraska and passed that passion on to Bryce.

For that reason, Sandvoort said, “I’ve always been interested in[Nebraska].” “It’s close. I know a lot about the program. I was really looking forward to getting down there and seeing how it fits in.”

In the past week, fitness has been feeling great. Sandvoort said the Huskers looked like a tight-knit team during training. The culture felt positive. And he already knows he’d be a good fit on the NU offense, because his high school team uses similar offensive concepts.

Waukee Senior High may reflect the mummy even more this season. The NU crew introduced Waukee coach Kevin Kanasky to a new defense on the ball screen earlier this season. Kanaskie was invited to Lincoln, and Sandfort said Kanaski spoke with NU assistant Nate Loenser for six hours about basketball.

However, Sandfort’s brother Payton plays in Iowa, and there are 247 sports projects in which Price plays college basketball there. Pryce loves the Hawkeyes’ continuous rhythm style and proximity, too. In addition, they are the defenders of the Big Ten Tournament title.

But the younger Sandfort has not decided anything yet. He wants to wait until fall to commit – October, maybe sooner. And last week, NU showcased all the qualities he’s looking for in a program: a healthy culture, a system that fits his strengths and the employees he deals with.

“It was fantastic,” Sandvoort said. “I loved finally getting down there, seeing the facilities and talking to the staff. … I think we get along really well with each other.”
