Samari Curtis, Ohio's Mr. Basketball and Xenia High School's all-time leading scorer who recently decommitted from the Cincinnati Bearcats - after earlier decommitting from the Xavier Musketeers -  announced via Twitter on Wednesday evening that he's committed to Nebraska.

The Cornhuskers introduced new head coach Fred Hoiberg last month.

Virginia Tech was also believed to be a finalist for Curtis. Two minutes after he tweeted earlier this month that he reopened his recruitment, he announced - also via Twitter - that he had received an offer from the Hokies.

The former UC assistant who recruited Curtis - Antwon Jackson - accepted a position last month on new Hokies head coach Mike Young's staff in Blacksburg.
