Tim Miles announced Wednseday that freshman Jeriah Horne has decided to transfer from the University of Nebraska following the spring semester. Horne played in 29 games as a freshman and averaged 4.3 ppg and 1.9 rpg.

“Jeriah informed me earlier this week that he intends to transfer,” Miles said. “Though I'm disappointed and hoped he'd stay at Nebraska, I fully support him as he considers his future plans.”

Horne released the following statement regarding his decision to transfer: 

“I want to take a moment and thank the University of Nebraska, Coach Miles, my teammates, my fellow students and all the fans of Husker basketball for welcoming me into their community. I am so thankful for the support I have received here at Nebraska,” Horne said. 

“However, I have decided to transfer at the end of the year. This wasn't an easy decision, but I feel it is best that I explore other educational and athletic opportunities that may be available to me. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity I was given and wish everybody at the University of Nebraska nothing but success."
