JUCO Center Commits to Nebraska Men’s Basketball Program

Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College center Blaise Keita has committed to play for the Nebraska men’s basketball program.  Keita averaged 12.1 points and 8.1 rebounds and shot 75% from the free-throw line in his first eight games with the team. He’s 6-foot-10 with a 7-1 wingspan.  Keita told Pro Insight, “I’m excited to go play for Nebraska and coach Fred Hoiberg, I wanted to commit early so that I could focus on my academics. They’ve been recruiting me hard since I’ve been at Coffeyville. I like how he develops players and his NBA background.”  The 21-year-old Keita, a native of Mali, has to graduate from junior college, which means he won’t arrive at NU until summer 2022.
