Alem Huseinović, one of the most coveted class of 2020 recruits from the state of Arizona, announced his commitment to new head coach Steve Alford and the Nevada program on Monday, via a post on his Twitter account.

Huseinović, who this past season helped Chaparral High School to an Arizona 6A state runner-up finish to Pinnacle High School (which featured Arizona five-star commit Nico Mannion), also told AZ Central on Monday that he intends to transfer to PHHoenix Prep Academy for his senior campaign in the fall.
The commitment from Huseinović gives Nevada head coach Steve Alford his first “true commitment” in the 2020 class, but the Bosnian guard will be joined by a duo of transfers who will become eligible for the 2020-2021 season in Desmond Cambridge (Brown) and Warren Washington (Oregon State).
As for Nevada’s 2019-2020 prognosis, the Wolf Pack still hope that they have enough pieces left on campus, helped by guards Jazz Johnson and Lindsey Drew, and have salvaged enough of a recruiting haul between Eric Parrish, K.J. Hymes, Kane Milling and Zane Meeks to stay towards the top of the Mountain West.
