Two-Star Point Guard Charlie Easley commits to Nebraska Cornhuskers

Hoiberg sees a future from the hometown Husker

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Illinois Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday, Head Coach Fred Hoiberg and the Nebraska Cornhuskers received some exciting news. Two-star recruit Charlie Easley announced via Twitter his commitment to walk-on and play for the Cornhuskers next season.

Easley is listed as a 6-foot point guard by Verbal Commits. Easley comes out of Lincoln Pius X High School in Lincoln, Nebraska. His other college offers came from Rockhurst and Nebraska-Kearney. These schools included scholarship offers for Easley, but he was willing to give that up to play for his hometown Huskers.

While some may say Coach Hoiberg is taking a chance on a hometown kid, Hoiberg obviously saw exactly what he needed for Easley to join the Nebraska basketball program.

Hart joins Jervay Green and Akol Arop in the Nebraska class of 2019 that is currently ranked as the twelfth best recruiting class in the Big Ten and 80th in the country by 247Sports.

Under the new direction of Fred Hoiberg, this hometown hero will look to make a slash during his time as a Husker.
