Fred Hoiberg hit the transfer market once again this weekend as Nebraska picks up guard Keon Edwards from DePaul. Keon is 6’7” and 185 lbs and was originally part of the DePaul 2021 recruiting class but reclassified to the 2020 class. Head coach Dave Leitao was let go at the end of the season and Keon entered the portal. While he has yet to have an official on campus visit he did do a virtual one which was enough to sell him on Hoiberg’s team and the university at large.

He appeared in five games for the Blue Devils this past year averaging 7.8 minutes and 1.8 points per game. Out of high school Keon was a four star prospect and the 91st best player in the nation by 247 sports for the 2020 class.
His limited playing time at DePaul will classify him as a freshman at Nebraska and will be immediately eligible to play according to the new NCAA one time transfer rules.
