“We are excited to have Kevin join our program. He is a skilled big who brings versatility to our front court with his ability to score both inside and out. We think he is a player who will develop in our up-tempo system.” - Coach Fred Hoiberg
Kevin Cross from Little Rock, Arkansas has signed his National Letter-of-Intent to play basketball for Nebraska. Cross first popped up on our radar on April 25th as a recruit who would be taking an official visit. Little was known about Cross at the time as he had no available recruiting profiles. It turns out Cross had blossomed from a 6'6" 215 lb high school junior into a 6'8" 240 lb senior and that Doc Sadler and his Arkansas connections made him one of the few people in Div 1 to notice. Cross had previously been offered by Sadler at Southern Miss and ultimately it was that prior relationship that led Cross to choose Nebraska over Oklahoma St and TCU.
When Cross signed Nebraska had 1 available scholarship left for 2019-20. You can check out our scholarship matrix here.
