Nebraska hosting high-profile point guard transfer on visit
Nebraska is hosting former Arizona point guard Kerr Kriisa on a recruiting visit.
Kriisa shared a welcome kit with several Husker edits on his Instagram. And it seems he’s wasting no time trying to find his next home. Just this past Saturday Kriisa was in Morgantown visiting the West Virginia Mountaineers. He entered the transfer portal on March 22 after spending 3 seasons at Arizona.

Kriisa ran the point for Arizona teams that won back-to-back Pac-12 championships over the last 2 seasons. During the 2021-22 season, the Wildcats won a Pac-12 record 18 league games to capture both the regular-season and conference tournament titles.
The 6-foot-3 shooter played a key role on that team and then once again this past season. He averaged 9.7 points during the 2021-22 season and then averaged 9.9 points this past season. He’s primarily a 3-point shooter and facilitator.
He has averaged 6.3 assists per 40 minutes over his career. Meanwhile, 80.9% of his field goal attempts have been 3s, shots that he has hit at a 35% over his career.
Nebraska coach Fred Hoiberg is looking for a lead guard who can replace Sam Griesel, and Kriisa brings a ton of experience to the Cornhuskers. He has 70 career starts and has played in Sweet 16 games over each of the last 2 seasons.
Xavier — coached by former Arizona head coach Sean Miller, who recruited Kriisa to Tucson — is also expected to be a player in Kriisa’s transfer recruitment.
