Nebraska guard Eli Rice enters transfer portal

A Nebraska basketball player has entered the transfer portal. Eli Rice made the decision official on Monday afternoon.

Rice appeared in 17 games this season, averaging 9.8 minutes per game. He averages 4.2 points per game and 1.6 rebounds.

When Rice signed with the Huskers in November 2022, Hoiberg said he was impressed by the three-star recruit’s talents.

“Eli is a guard with good positional size and length and the versatility to play several positions in our system. He is a good scorer who can make plays for others and rebounds well for his position. Eli has a lot of potential for development, as he played just two years of high school basketball and is young for graduating class. I think his best basketball days are ahead of him.”

Rice is the second Husker to enter the transfer portal, joining guard Ramel Lloyd Jr.
