Nebraska Has Indefinitely Suspended Guard Jervay Green

December 13, 2019

Nebraska has indefinitely suspended Jervay Green. 

The news came by way of a release from the university Friday afternoon, just a few hours before the Huskers tip off against Indiana in Bloomington for the start of Big Ten play. Green was suspended for “a violation of team rules,” per the release.

Green, a junior guard who transferred to Nebraska this past offseason after two years spent at Western Nebraska Community College, has started each of Nebraska’s first nine games this season. He is averaging 10.3 points and 4.9 rebounds per contest.

A native of Denver, Colorado, Green was rated as the No. 8 player nationally and No. 2 combo guard in the class of 2019. He was a Tim Miles commit who Fred Hoiberg was able to retain after the coaching transition. 

There was no provided statement from Hoiberg in the release. 

Green traveled with the team to Indiana.

There is no additional information as to what rules Green broke or what prompted the suspension. 

Hail Varsity will update this story as more info becomes known.
