He took an official visit to Lincoln June 18-20. He originally set his commitment date for June 27, but postponed his announcement and continued taking visits. He chose the Huskers over offers from Arkansas, Georgetown, Oregon and many others.

His father, Ramel Lloyd Sr., was a standout at had a standout three-year career at Long Beach State after spending his freshman year at Syracuse. Lloyd Sr. averaged 17.4 points during his three seasons at Long Beach before playing professionally overseas for more than a decade.
