It appears that Nebraska is not going to give up so easily on trying to keep four-star Louisville commit Akoy Agau home in Omaha. Nebraska head coach Tim Miles visited Agau’s high school today to try to convince him that staying home and playing for the Cornhuskers would be in his best interest. While Agau might just be another top 100 player for Louisville, he is a huge recruit for a program like Nebraska, and it is understandable that they would do whatever it takes to keep him home.
In all reality, Louisville should not be too concerned about Agau flipping to the Cornhuskers. If you just do a simple side by side comparison of the two programs, you will see that one is a perennial Final Four contender and the other is lucky if they are contending for a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Nebraska just has too much going against them in this recruiting battle. The one thing that I will say is that the hometown school should never be taken lightly, but in this case I do not think that the hometown factor is even close to enough to sway Agau.
