Florida transfer Walter Pitchford has decided to continue his college basketball career at Nebraska.
Pitchford, a 6-foot-10, 220-pound forward from Grand Rapids, Mich., said Saturday he gave his commitment to coach Tim Miles during his weekend visit to Lincoln.
“Besides the facilities, they have great coaches and great players,” Pitchford said. “Everybody there, I felt comfortable being with for the time I was there.”
Paperwork that will finalize Pitchford's transfer is expected to be complete Monday or Tuesday, at which point Miles can comment on his latest recruit.
Pitchford played in 13 games for a total of 22 minutes as a true freshman last season for Florida and announced in April he was transferring because he wanted to be closer to his ailing grandfather in Michigan. Pitchford said that because of his family situation, he is seeking an NCAA transfer waiver that would allow him to play immediately.
