The Nebraska basketball team is moving on from Brady Heiman. While the center now has to find a new place to play, it appears as though he isn't without options. Mike Sauter reports there are at least three teams that are looking to recruit him to play for their programs.

Omaha has been thought to be the most obvious landing spot. The Mavericks are on the come up, being one game away from the NCAA Tournament last season.

That was quite a bit closer than Nebraska was, it turns out.

The Summit League school is obviously the best fit, as it would mean he'd be able to stay pretty close to home. He's also got some size (6-foot-11) that would play well in that particular conference. It's rather obvious why UNO would want him as well. He could give them the kind of weapon the team has never really had. Someone who has real game experience in the Big 10.

Checking out the rest of the area

There are some Nebraska basketball fans that might be a bit surprised Heiman has already gotten the kind of attention he has since announcing he was transferring. It was pretty clear that he didn't possess the skills that are needed to be a starting center in the B1G.

It did appear as though he might have been someone who could be a capable backup for the Huskers, even if he didn't fit Hoiberg's plans for the usual big man in his system.

UNO is not the only team that is rather happy he's able to move on from the program and look elsewhere.

Sauter reports Colorado State and South Dakota are both showing interest as well. While South Dakota would also have Heiman playing in the Summit League, the Rams offer is an interesting one. Should Heiman choose that school, he wouldn't be going all that far away from home and would be playing in the Mountain West.

Rumors turn out to be false

On the day that Brady Heiman told people he had been asked to leave the Nebraska basketball team, there were rumors that two other players had been asked to leave, or had decided to leave. It turns out those rumors appear to be false.

Amir Harris and Thorir Thorbjarnarson were thought to be entering their names into the transfer portal but both will, at least for now plan on returning to the Cornhuskers.

Harris shot the rumors down on the same day that they surfaced. He told the media he would continue rehabbing his injury and expected to return.

The guard known as Thor to Husker faithful became a kind of cult hero at the end of last season. Injuries and suspensions got him more playing time than he came into 2018-19 expecting to play. Sources told the media on Friday that he will expect to return.

After the earlier confirmations that Jervay Green and Dachon Burke will return, the Nebraska basketball team is just waiting for Isaiah Roby to make his decision.
