Nebraska received some star visitors for its opening football weekend as Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade and wife Gabrielle Union visited campus on Saturday.
You might be wondering why a famous actress and perennial NBA all-star (from Marquette) might be visiting, but Union grew up in Omaha and her family has deep family history cheering for Nebraska football. So Wade and Union went to check out Nebraska’s home football opener against BYU.
Being a hooper, Wade and Union had to check out Nebraska’s basketball practice facility and head coach Tim Miles and the team were enthusiastic to greet them.
The basketball team clearly made an impression on Union.
Miles can use this visit as a positive for recruiting as he can point to how Union is a fan of the program and how she was impressed by everything they have to offer.
