Former Kansas Guard Now Part Of Nebraska Basketball Roster

It’s hard to put the day’s events any better than Nebraska basketball head coach Tim Miles did.

After securing the commitment of 2017 prospect Aguek Arop, the Huskers now have another long-coveted prospect.

Former Kansas guard Andrew White III has made his decision after a long (and somewhat painful for Husker fans) decision process.

The Richmond, VA native will sit out a year before being eligible for two during his career as a Nebrasketballer.

As a member of the Kansas Jayhawks, White played in 19 games averaging 5.9 minutes per contest. He put up 2.3 ponts per game, a field goal percentage of .441 along with a .320 average from beyond the arc.

At the charity stripe, he knocked down 50 percent of his shots and snagged 1.2 rebounds per game.

While there wasn’t much room for him at Kansas, there’ll be plenty of opportunity for him to make a name for himself as a member of the Cornhuskers’ roster.

The addition not only bolsters Miles’ crew, it helps soften the blow of a potential Terran Petteway departure for the NBA.

Should Petteway stay, Nebraska basketball could pose an extremely threat for all Big Ten schools at home or away.

Indeed, coach Miles, this Monday has been a great way to start the week.
