Nebraska Cornhuskers: Fred Hoiberg has eye on former Dayton Flyer

The Nebraska Cornhuskers are trying to add one last piece of the puzzle to the 2023-2024 season with the addition of a Dayton transfer.

The Nebraska basketball team got quite a boost earlier this week when Keisei Tominaga announced he was coming back for one more season. Now head coach Fred Hoiberg is looking to make his fifth Huskers’ team the best yet by adding yet another transfer player.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers haven’t been shy about adding players through the portal since Hoiberg got here. This past winter and spring, he added three transfer players in Brice Williams, Rienk Mast and Ahron Ulis. In order to haul in a fourth, Hoiberg is going to have to do some work.

Despite that he does have his work cut out for him, he’s at least managed to get the Nebraska Cornhuskers among the final five schools that Dayton transfer Mike Sharavjamt is considering. Otherwise known as “Mongolian Mike” the Huskers have stiff competition.

In addition to the Nebraska Cornhuskers program, Sharavjamt has Indiana, Memphis, Pitt, and San Francisco among his final schools. There was a time when he thought he was headed to the NBA. However, he officially withdrew his name from that pool and is going for one final season in College Basketball.

Nebraska Cornhuskers among top five

6-foot-8, 180-pound small forward averaged 5.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 23.1 minutes per game during his freshman year with the Dayton Flyers.

While those numbers aren’t eye-popping, Mongolian Mike was among the best recruits in 2022 class. The former 4-star prospect would definitely be another feather in the cap of Hoiberg. The Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach is looking to build on his first non-losing season in Lincoln.

He’s also looking to take advantage of one more season with Keisei Tominaga and yet another revamped roster. The question now is just when Sharavjamt will announce his decision.
