A 6-foot-9, 195-pound forward, Murrell had picked up seven high major offers just this spring and summer before the Huskers offered after the just-completed evaluation weekend.

Murrell holds offers from Creighton, Iowa, Kansas State, Minnesota, TCU, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin, along with a host of offers from mid-major programs.

He averaged 11.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game last season for the Mustangs as they went 16-8, and has parlayed a strong summer on the AAU circuit into multiple offers.

And, he is the third Millard North player to receive a Nebraska offer. Hunter Sallis, a 2021 guard, held an offer from the previous NU staff that was reaffirmed once Fred Hoiberg took over. Jasen Green, a 2022 forward, received a Husker offer this spring.
