Nebraska to lose Andrew White to grad transfer

2 Comments

A month after Andrew White announced his intention to return to school after declaring for the NBA Draft, Nebraska’s leading returning scorer has requested a release and intends to transfer out of Tim Miles’ program.

White will be a fifth-year senior and a graduate transfer, eligible immediately at whatever program takes him.

“I spoke with Andrew [Saturday]¬†evening in which he asked me how he can proceed with a release from Nebraska,” Miles said in a statement. “There have been discussions with Andrew and his father about Andrew’s place in our program for months, and this is his decision. Even though I am extremely disappointed, he will be given a complete release as the logistics are handled this week. We will move on. I am truly excited about our team and next season.”

Nebraska went 16-18 last season and is already losing leading scorer Shavon Shields. White, a 6-foot-6 wing and former top 50 recruit who began his career at Kansas, averaged 16.6 points last season. A 2016 honorable mention all-Big Ten member, he’ll immediately become one of the most sought-after transfers on the market.
