The Nebraska Cornhuskers got some exciting news this week as 2022 prospect Ramel Lloyd announced his commitment to the program. It’s a key pickup for Fred Hoiberg as he looks to form his first NCAA contending squad.

Lloyd comes out of Temecula, California and is rated as a four-star prospect and the 91st best player in the 2022 class by 247Sports. The recruiting site also lists him at 6-foot-6 and 190 pounds and as one of the more intriguing players in the class. Along with Nebraska, he also had offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, and Dayton among others.
With his announcement, Nebraska now has two commitments in its 2022 recruiting class. Lloyd joins JUCO prospect Blaise Keita, who figures to be one of the best JUCO players in the 2022 recruiting cycle. The class is now ranked 26th nationally, which is certainly good enough to start building talent for the Huskers moving forward.
Of course, there’s still a lot of time left to recruit for the 2022 cycle. We’ll have to wait and see how everything shakes out. But regardless of how things finish, Husker fans have to be excited about adding Lloyd to the fold.
