Pius X grad Charlie Easley earns scholarship with Husker Hoops

Charlie Easley’s play for the Huskers has paid off. 

The freshman guard has been put on full scholarship, according to Fred Hoiberg Friday.

Easley said he was told by Hoiberg and then mobbed by his teammates earlier this week. 

 “If you want something bad enough and you work for it, why don’t you go and get it?” Easley said.

The Pius X grad has played in 11 games this season, including a season-high 16 minutes in an upset win over Iowa on Tuesday.

Easley entered the year as a walk-on after leading the Thunderbolts to a Class B state title last March.
