Nebraska announced on Thursday that all-Big Ten performer Terran Petteway is heading to the professional ranks.
“I want to start off by thanking the city of Lincoln and state of Nebraska for all of the love and support that you guys have shown me over the last three years,” Petteway said. “This is a bittersweet moment for me because Lincoln has become a second home to me, but in the same instance has helped me grow as a man and ballplayer, and I love y’all.”
Petteway spent the past two seasons playing for the Huskers after transferring into the program from Texas Tech. As a junior, he averaged 18.2 points and earned third-team all-Big Ten honors. He was a first-team all-Big Ten player as a sophomore, when Nebraska played their way into the NCAA tournament.
“I’m happy for Terran and his family,” Nebraska Coach Tim Miles said. “While I had hoped he stayed with us for his senior year, I completely support his decision, and we will help him as much as we can through this process. I believe any team in the NBA or otherwise would love to have Terran on their team.”
Petteway is on track to earn his degree next month.
