NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Tournament-Nebraska vs Indiana Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

Junior guard Jervay Green has entered the transfer portal and is unlikely to return to the Nebraska Cornhuskers next season. Green played in 28 games this season for Nebraska, and started at shooting guard in his first nine games for the Cornhuskers.

However, in mid-December he was suspended for a violation of team rules and missed or did not play in games that included early season Big Ten opponents the Indiana Hoosiers and Purdue Boilermakers. In those games, Nebraska took Indiana to overtime on the road and upset Purdue at home in PBA.

After a stint on the bench following his suspension, Green worked his way back into the rotation playing as much as 19 minutes at Michigan late in the season before Nebraska had to finish out short handed. Jervay averaged 8.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per game this season.

Green played his first two seasons at Western Nebraska Community College, and was being recruited by former Head Coach Tim Miles. After Miles was fired and replaced, Head Coach Fred Hoiberg continued the recruitment. Green’s sophomore season he scored 23.6 points per game while averaging 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists.

With his departure, Jervay Green will join fellow first year Husker Dachon Burke Jr. in transferring out of Nebraska. Cam Mack also declared for the NBA draft, but made clear he intends to keep his college eligibility while doing so and as a result could theoretically return to Nebraska. Overall the roster is likely to stay in flux for the time being.
