Kobe Webster has officially signed with the Nebraska Cornhuskers as a transfer student in the 2020 recruiting class.

The 6’ guard averaged 17.1 points, 3.6 assists, and 3.2 rebounds for Western Illinois and shot 41.7% from the floor this past season with the Western Illinois Leathernecks. While there he was a three year starter for the Leathernecks.

Webster was a second team All-Summit League member pick his sophomore season. Throughout his career he has averaged at least 15.5 points per game and 3 assists per game. Webster also shot a career high 41% from three point range his sophomore season. His efficiency decreased significantly to just 33.3% last season, but he was the primary shooter for the team (who went 5-21 overall) and saw his accuracy suffer as a result.

Kobe will be immediately eligible to play as a graduate transfer but will only have one year of eligibility on the court. If he redshirts next season then he will be able to stick around Lincoln for two years. He picked the Huskers over the likes of Wake Forest, Arkansas, and Xavier, which is a more than impressive list of alternatives.
