Just a month ago Caleb Nero had finally wrapped up his college decision. It was a weight off of his shoulders as he signed to Wisconsin Milwaukee. But things changed when the head coach and assistant for Milwaukee were hired at Butler. Nero has since then been granted his release of letter of intent.
“Coach LaVall Jordan and Omar Lowery both left UWM,” said Nero. “So I felt I didn’t have a great relationship with UWM anymore. I had to follow my heart and do what’s best for me.”
Nero has already heard from Oral Roberts University and Southern Illinois. He hopes to sign with another Division I program. For a player that has been thrown a curveball, Nero seems to have a good plan.
“Somewhere I know God wants me is most important,” said Nero. “Great academics, nice campus and facilities. Chance to win games and go to the NCAA tournament and give me a chance to play at the next level.”
Nero is a state champion, state tournament MVP who averaged 25 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds. A microwave is the best way to describe Nero offensively. He can heat up in a hurry and make it look easy scoring off the dribble. The ability of Nero to score at all 3 levels, play the 1 and the 2, and lead the team is very valuable. Every place Nero has been at from Tulsa Memorial to Team Griffin, he has always won.
Any college Mid to Low Major looking for a scoring combo guard from all three levels should give Nero a hard look. Several things are not questioned when it comes to Nero. He is a winner, has great character and can score the basketball consistently.
Nero hopes to have a decision of what school he will attend in the fall soon.
