Nebraska's Samari Curtis (15) knocks lose a ball during the Huskers' matchup against South Dakota State on Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Nebraska freshman guard Samari Curtis has decided to transfer from Nebraska, the university announced on Friday.

Curtis had seen limited minutes in every game this season, generally only coming on near the end of a half or near the end of already decided games. Curtis played 6.1 minutes per game, scoring 1.8 points and grabbing 0.9 rebounds per game.

Curtis had a tumultuous recruiting process last season, verbally committing to both Xavier and Cincinnati before deciding on Nebraska. However, the young Ohio native has now decided to move on.

“Samari has informed me that he has decided to transfer,” head coach Fred Hoiberg said in a press release. “I have enjoyed coaching him, and we will support him as he finishes fall semester and begins looking at other schools.”

The minutes Curtis had taken will now most likely be redistributed amongst other young Nebraska guards. Nebraska native freshman guard Charlie Easley or Jace Piatkowski could be candidates for the vacancy.
