Spring is still here and the Nebraska men’s basketball squad is still in flux in regards to who will be playing under new coach Fred Hoiberg and who will not. Last week it was Brady Heiman. This week two more players from his class will no longer be on the team.
Amir Harris and Karrington Davis have entered their names into the NCAA Transfer Portal. Prior reports had both players back next year. However, both players have been recently informed that the coaches do not see them as contributors to the squad. Both Amir and Karrington were freshman the past season. Amir averaged 2.2 points and 2.7 rebounds per game while Karrington missed the season with an Achilles injury suffered back in October.
This is a relatively new area for Nebraska with the transfer portal and having a new coach. Both players signed four year scholarships to come and play at Nebraska. In most cases, they would be protected but the NCAA allows a new coach to deny those contracts to the team if he feels the players do not fit in the new system. The players can stay and still have their scholarship to the university but those scholarships will not count towards the 13 scholarships that the basketball team is allowed to give out.
As of now there are only three players left over from the Tim Miles Tenure. They are Isaiah Roby, Dachon Burke, and Thorir Thorbjarnarson.
Expect these two spots filled fairy soon as summer conditioning is coming up and this unknown team will need to gel as quick as possible before the season starts.
