XENIA — Xenia High School senior Samari Curtis signed with the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Wednesday, the school announced.
The decision by Curtis comes 13 days after he was released from his letter of intent with the Cincinnati Bearcats.
Curtis joins a program that has a new head coach, Fred Hoiberg. Nebraska finished 19-17 last season and 6-14 in the Big Ten and fired Tim Miles in March after seven seasons in which he was 116-114. Nebraska has played in the NCAA tournament once (2014) in the last 20 seasons.
“Samari is an elite guard,” Hoiberg said in a press release. “He gives us size and length at the guard position and his skillset blends well with the other guards currently on our roster.”
It was a similar situation for Curtis in May of 2018 when he decommitted from Xavier after coach Chris Mack left for Louisville.
