Despite not playing a minute for the Nebraska basketball team, incoming Wisconsin transfer Kobe King is leaving the program.

King committed to the Huskers in February after playing 63 games at Wisconsin, 20 of those games being a starter.

He decided that he no longer wants to be a part of the program and is going to step away from basketball for personal reasons.

Nebraska basketball coach, Fred Hoiberg, issued a statement on Friday to announce the news.

“Kobe King has informed us that he will not be attending the University of Nebraska for personal reasons,” he said. “We respect his decision and wish him the best in his future endeavors.”

According to Lincoln Journal Star, he is one of three players who had not yet reported to campus. With King’s absence, Nebraska will have one open scholarship for the 2020-2021 season.

I am a senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am double majoring in sports media and communication and broadcasting with a minor in leadership and communication. I am involved with HuskerVision, the KRNU Radio Station and the Cornhusker Marching Band. After I graduate, I want to work on the media production side of baseball and softball.
