Shamiel Stevenson is set to join his third program in as many years, after being a member of the 2017 recruiting class. Nebraska could be his next stop.
Stevenson began his career at Pitt. As a freshman, he was a solid contributor for the Panthers, averaging 8.5 points and 4.4 rebounds per game.
He explored a transfer after the program made a coaching change, but ultimately decided to stay at Pitt and play for Jeff Capel. That didn’t last long.
After just four games in his sophomore year, after averaging under four points per game, he elected to leave at mid-season. He wound up at Nevada.
Once again, he is dealing with a coaching change though.
Eric Musselman took the job at Arkansas following a strong two season stretch with the Wolf Pack. Now, Stevenson is looking to leave for yet another school.
As reported by Jon Rothstein, Shamiel Stevenson will check out Nebraska this weekend.
The Huskers have a new coach of their own, in former Iowa State and Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg. Due to a number of departures from Lincoln, he’s also rebuilding the program on the fly.

Stevenson wasn’t going to be eligible to play until December anyway, after leaving Pitt for Nevada during the year.
Hopefully his next stop, whether it is Nebraska or elsewhere, will offer him some stability.
