Alabama transfer Juwan Gary announced via his instagram that he has committed to play for Nebraska. Gary was a sophomore this season and the 6'6" 218# forward will have two years of eligibility left.
Gary projects to be a 3 or 4 with the Huskers and is known for his defensive ability, driving ability, and energy. A history of injuries have slowed down Gary, but he started 19 games for Alabama despite an ankle injury and a facial injury which caused him to wear a protective mask. Originally a 2019 HS graduate, Gary spent his first year redshirting due to a torn ACL.
Fred Hoiberg on the addition of Juwan Gary: "Juwan adds a different dimension to our roster with his combination of athleticism and versatility. He plays with physicality and can be used all over the floor. Juwan also has the experience of playing in two NCAA Tournaments and winning an SEC title in 2021, which gives him the understanding of what it takes to be successful at the highest level."
Gary is from Colombia, South Carolina where he was a 4 star recruit coming out of high school.
