Sallis will have a chance to become one of this state's highest rated basketball prospects of the last two decades.

Since Rivals began ranking basketball recruits in 2003, only one Nebraskan has ever finished in the top 50. That was Omaha North grad Justin Patton, who ranked No. 45 in the 2015 class. Patton went on to play at Creighton and was selected 16th overall in the 2017 NBA draft.

Others who have cracked Rivals' top 150: Omaha Central's Akoy Agau (No. 87 in 2013), South Sioux City's Mike Gesell (No. 100 in 2012) and Lincoln Southeast's Matt Hill (No. 127 in 2006).

Nebraska could have two straight years with top-150 recruits, though. Lincoln North Star's Donovan Williams — a Husker commit — currently ranks No. 94 in the 2020 class.
