Nebraska Basketball was busy recruiting over the weekend.

Nebraska Basketball continues to recruit hard. Over the weekend, Fred Hoiberg and his staff offered a scholarship to 2022 power forward Jasen Green. Green is an in-state player who plays for Millard North High School in Omaha.

With Green being an in-state prospect, that is also a pretty big development. Hoiberg has shown he is not afraid to recruit the state of Nebraska, and it is a wise move on his part to
