Two players in the past 24 hours to leave Nebrasketball

NCAA Basketball: Iowa at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Per a tweet from Eric Bossi of Rivals, Nebraska basketball forward Jeriah Horne is not long for Lincoln much longer.

Horne, who just finished his freshman season in Lincoln, averaged 4.3 points per game this season.

Horne averaged 11 minutes per game in his lone set in Lincoln. His usage by head coach Tim Miles seemed to be odd, as he went 8 straight games in the non-conference slate with 10 or less minutes off the bench.

Horne’s best game was against Southern in Lincoln. In a game that Nebraska was trying to get off the schneid of losing to Gardner-Webb, Horne had 18 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in the Husker win.

Horne also contributed 16 points & 7 rebounds in place of a injured Ed Morrow as the Huskers upset the regular-season Big Ten champions.

This news piggybacks the release yesterday that Nick Fuller would leave the Nebraska program as a graduate transfer.

The Overland Park, Kansas native will have 4 years to play 3. We wish him well.

UPDATE: Well, it may not be totally done yet!

Update: He is gone.

University of Nebraska Head Coach Tim Miles announced Wednesday that freshman Jeriah Horne has decided to transfer from the Husker program following the spring semester.

“Jeriah informed me earlier this week that he intends to transfer,” Miles said. “Though I'm disappointed and hoped he'd stay at Nebraska, I fully support him as he considers his future plans.”

Horne, a 6-foot-7 forward from Overland Park, Kan., played in 29 games as a freshman, averaging 4.3 points and 1.9 rebounds per game. Horne had a season-high 18 points in a win over Southern, one of five double-figure performances for Horne during the 2016-17 season.

“I want to take a moment and thank the University of Nebraska, Coach Miles, my teammates, my fellow students and all the fans of Husker basketball for welcoming me into their community. I am so thankful for the support I have received here at Nebraska,” Horne said.

“However, I have decided to transfer at the end of the year. This wasn't an easy decision, but I feel it is best that I explore other educational and athletic opportunities that may be available to me. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity I was given and wish everybody at the University of Nebraska nothing but success."

The Huskers return four starters and eight of the team’s top 10 scorers from the 2016-17 team, while welcoming a trio of newcomers, including Georgetown transfer Isaac Copeland and Miami transfer James Palmer Jr., and incoming freshman Nana Akenten.
