Nebraska basketball adds commitment from 3-star center from Lithuania
Nebraska basketball picked up a nice commitment on Monday morning from 3-star center Oleg Kojenets.
Kojenets is Lithuanian and is currently attending high school at Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio.
Here is the announcement:
🇱🇹 2021 class Lithuanian center Oleg Kojenets (‘03) has committed to Nebraska, per sources.

Kojenets the No. 24 center in the class of 2021, according to 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 191 overall player and the No. 18 player from Ohio, per the composite.
He’s listed at 6-foot-10, 215 pounds. Kojenets picked Nebraska over offers from Georgia Tech, Seton Hall and others.
Kojenets is a relatively late addition to a stellar Nebraska recruiting class. The Huskers now have four commits in this cycle and are ranked No. 14 nationally and No. 3 in the Big Ten, according to 247Sports Composite rankings.
The class is led by 5-star guard Bryce McGowens. It also includes 4-star center Wilhelm Breidenbach, 3-star JUCO guard Keisei Tominaga and now Kojenets.
With this influx of talent, Nebraska should be much better next season in Year 3 under Fred Hoiberg.
