Nebraska guard Charlie Easley announces he'll transfer to new program
Nebraska’s basketball program is losing another member from the 2019-20 roster.
Former walk-on guard Charlie Easley announced over the weekend that he will be leaving the Huskers basketball program and will be continuing his career at South Dakota State. It was a decision he called “bittersweet,” but he’ll receive a scholarship with the Jackrabbits for the upcoming season.
Despite being awarded a scholarship for the 2019-20 season after initially walking on to the program, Easley would have returned to his walk-on status with the Huskers.
“I’d like to announce I will be transferring to South Dakota State University to continue my academic and basketball,” Easley wrote on Twitter. “It was a difficult decision and is a bittersweet moment for me to have to leave my hometown and the Nebraska program.”
Easley was a backup guard for the Huskers last season and appeared in 28 games as a freshman. He averaged just under 12 minutes per game with 1.9 points, 1.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists per contest.
Easley scored a career-high eight points against Indiana in January and played in 33 minutes against Minnesota, his highest total of the year. He also grabbed six rebounds against the Gophers.
