Point Guard

Ramel Lloyd – Starter

The redshirt freshman is a very dynamic player who could start at three different positions for the Huskers this year but right now should be the point guard. Lloyd committed to Nebraska out of Sierra Canyon where he played with Amari Bailey, Shy Odom, and Bronny James. Sierra Canyon is a factory of college and NBA talent and players from there do a lot of winning.

The freshman is a good passer and rebounder for a guard, but his offensive game is a little bit behind which may cut into his minutes. He is great at other things and even if he is not scoring will be able to impact the game.

Boogie Coleman – Backup

Jarron “Boogie” Coleman was the last addition to the Nebraska roster as a transfer from Ball State. At Ball State the point guard earned second team All MAC with 14 points, 4 assists and 1 steal per game. He has a ton of experience in the college game and did spend a year in the power 5’s at Missouri.

Coleman doesn’t get the starting nod for me at least because he was here late and missed the trip to Spain and may be a little behind. Coleman is going to play a lot and is going to contribute on both ends of the floor for the Huskers.

Cale Jacobsen – Depth

Will the redshirt freshman guard from Nebraska get any minutes?  It is hard to say, he is included on this list because he played very well in Spain when he was given the chance, and this is now the second offseason in a row that the coaches have raved about how talented Jacobsen is. He is a natural scorer and was one of the most prolific scorers in Nebraska high school history.

Point guard is a spot he is still learning and on the foreign trip to Spain he did have some games with a lot of turnovers. There are some guys who will get playing time in front of him, but the coaching staff loves him.

Ahron Ulis was brought in to be a point guard on this team, but after he transferred from Iowa he was named as one of the individuals who was placing bets on Iowa games and other sporting events. That is an NCAA violation, and it will not surprise me if Ulis never plays another minute of college Basketball. As of right now he is still listed on the roster but likely won’t be a factor in any game.
