Nebraska hoops adds commitment from 4-star wing, top-100 prospect for class of 2022
Nebraska hoops reeled in a big-time prospect Sunday afternoon, adding a wing prospect out of Woodland Hills, California.
The player is Ramel Lloyd Jr., a four-star small forward for the class of 2022. His father, Ramel Lloyd Sr., played for Syracuse and Long Beach State during the late 1990s.
Lloyd Jr. has received offers from across the country, including Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Baylor, Georgetown, and Oregon before selecting the Cornhuskers:

Listed at 6-foot-6 and 190 lbs., the 247 Sports Composite Rankings rates Lloyd as the No. 24 small forward nationally for the cycle. He is also the 11th-best prospect out of California and the No. 91 prospect nationally.
Lloyd Jr. becomes the second commit for Nebraska via the class of 2022. He joins JUCO center Blaise Keita as head coach Fred Hoiberg works to build the class.
Recruiting for the Huskers has improved under Hoiberg after landing the 18th best class in the country for 2021. Results have yet to follow with Nebraska going just 14-45 in two seasons since he arrived. Hopefully, better records are right around the corner.
