Ex-Husker Heiman to play hoops for South Dakota
Former Husker basketball player Brady Heiman is transferring to South Dakota, Coyote head coach Todd Lee announced Thursday.
Heiman, a 6-foot-11 native of Springfield and a Platteview graduate, put his name into the transfer portal earlier in May. He will need to sit out one year according to NCAA rules, but South Dakota plans to file a waiver to allow him to play immediately.
“Brady is a very good student and will fit in great with the type of young men we have in our program,” Lee said in a news release. “He has a high skill level and can be a great rim protector. He is a very good athlete that runs the floor. Brady fits right into what we are looking for as an offensive player and he has the ability to be a great player in the Summit League.”
