Nebraska sophomore forward Ed Morrow Jr. is transferring from the Husker basketball program
The 6-foot-7 native of Chicago played in 24 games, averaging 9.4 points and a team-high 7.5 rebounds per game in 2016-17. Morrow, who missed seven games because of a foot injury, tied for the team lead in blocked shots with 27 and posted a team-high three double-doubles. He reached double figures 10 times in 2016-17, including a career-high 19 points against Dayton.
“I support Ed in his decision to transfer schools and wish him well,” said Nebraska coach Tim Miles. “We appreciate his hard work over the last two years. Although I am disappointed, we will continue to recruit young men who are committed to our mission of building Nebraska Basketball with a culture of success in all areas…life, school and winning basketball at its highest level.”
Morrow becomes the third Husker to leave the progam after this past season’s 12-19 record, joining freshman Jeriah Horne and junior Nick Fuller.
