LINCOLN — Jervay Green has entered the transfer portal and is unlikely to return to Nebraska, a source confirmed to The World-Herald.
Green played one season for the Huskers.
He previously spent two seasons at Western Nebraska Community College, where he scored 23.6 points per game as a sophomore with 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists. He was recruited to Nebraska by Tim Miles, then stayed committed for Fred Hoiberg’s first season.
Before signing with Nebraska, Green had interest from Colorado State, Houston, Ole Miss and TCU. He has one more season of eligibility left.
As a junior, Green appeared in 28 games for the Huskers and averaged 8.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.
The 6-foot-3 Denver native started at shooting guard for the first nine games before being suspended for a violation of team rules in mid-December. In his absence, Nebraska nearly upset Indiana on the road, then beat Purdue.
When Green returned, Hoiberg played him sparingly at first. Over time he found a spot in the rotation coming off the bench.
Nebraska finished 7-25, ending on a 17-game losing streak. Point guard Cam Mack declared for the NBA draft last week, and it is unlikely he returns to Lincoln.
As it stands, Nebraska is full up with 13 players for 13 scholarship spots, but more attrition could follow. Had Green stayed, he would have likely been battling for playing time at the wing with Nevada transfer Shamiel Stevenson, WNCC transfer Teddy Allen and Wisconsin transfer Kobe King, should King get a waiver for immediate eligibility. Nebraska has also been in contact with at least two guards in the transfer portal who could slip into Green's spot.
