Nebraska basketball star Andrew White III to transfer

Andrew White, the second-leading scorer for Nebraska last season, plans to play his final season at another school as a graduate transfer.

Coach Tim Miles said Sunday that White requested a release and will be given one. White, who sat out the 2014-15 season after transferring from Kansas, averaged 16.6 points and 5.9 rebounds in his only season with the Cornhuskers.

White submitted his name for the NBA draft on April 21 and didn’t withdraw until hours before the deadline for underclassmen.

Miles said he’s had discussions with White’s father over the last month about the 6-foot-7 wing’s place in the program.

“We will move on,” Miles said. “I am truly excited about our team and next season.”
