Fred Hoiberg continues to build his program.

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Tournament-Nebraska vs Indiana Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Nebraska head coach Fred Hoiberg continues to build the Nebraska program this off-season with the addition of Trevor Lakes, a D II sharpshooter from University of Indianapolis.

The addition of Lakes, first reported by 247Sports in late April, is meant to address the specific need of shooting on the Nebraska roster.

“The fit is perfect for me,” said Lakes to 247Sports reporter Brian Snow of Nebraska. “Coach Hoiberg’s system wants shooters, and that is what I am. That’s what they are looking for, and that’s what I will bring to the team. I think I can excel in that role and fit in perfect to help Nebraska win.”

Lakes, at 6-foot-7, should be able to get his shot up on Big Ten defenders, but the question remains if he’s ready for the physicality of Big Ten play on the offensive and defensive ends. At University of Indianapolis, Lakes averaged 15.7 points per game. He launched over 250 three-point attempts on the season and made 39.8 percent of them. Check out some highlights of Lakes below.

Lakes will have to sit next season and has one season of eligibility for the 2021-2022 season.
