Shamiel Stevenson, who was last a member of Nevada, will be taking a visit with the Nebraska Cornhuskers this week. Wherever he ends up, it’ll mark his third different college basketball home after originally starting his career with the Pittsburgh Panthers.
The news of the visit was relayed on Twitter by Jon Rothstein.
As a freshman with the Pittsburgh Panthers, Stevenson averaged 8.5 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. Prior to that, Stevenson averaged 14.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 blocks in his only season at Hillcrest, earning a four-star ranking from most reputable recruiting service outlets.
He eventually fell out of Pitt’s rotation, heading to Nevada, but never did anything with that program. To be clear, that doesn’t mean he’s good or bad. Nevada was stacked and there are transfer rules that do apply.
Nevertheless, Fred Hoiberg was always known as a man who loved to traffic the transfer market. Whether or not the Nebraska Cornhuskers land Shamiel Stevenson is yet to be known, but it’s not exactly shocking the former Chicago Bulls and Iowa State Cyclones coach is interested.
