Another Huskers basketball player dips into NCAA transfer portal
Nebraska forward Kevin Cross has decided to pursue opportunities outside of Lincoln. He played just one year for the Huskers.
Cross made an announcement via Twitter on Tuesday. He becomes the fourth player in the past three weeks to decide to leave the program, along with Cam Mack, Jervay Green and Charlie Easley.
“First off I want to thank God for giving me the ability to play the game of basketball also at such a high level. Second, i want to thank the wonderful fans of Nebraska as well as the coaching staff. You guys are so passionate about the Huskers and appreciate all the love and support I’ve received from my time as a Husker,” Cross wrote. “After a long deliberation with my parents and coaches, I have decided to enter my name into the NCAA transfer portal.”

As a true freshman, Cross appeared in all 32 games at Nebraska, making two starts last season. He averaged 7.1 points and 3.9 rebounds per game and continued to grow as a post player throughout the year. Cross averaged over 18 minutes per game, as well.
Cross will be forced to sit out the 2020-21 season due to NCAA transfer rules unless he receives an immediate eligibility waiver.
