After announcing his decision to transfer in May, former Kansas wing Andrew White is heading to Nebraska. White confirmed the news Monday on his Twitter account.
White, who also took visits to Notre Dame and Maryland, among others, will have two years of eligibility left after sitting out the 2014-15 season. He’ll join a rising Nebraska program that is coming off an NCAA Tournament appearance under third-year coach Tim Miles.
“I believe he can be an impact guy for us,’’ Miles said in a statement. “He has pro potential, and reminds me of Paul Pierce.”
White left Kansas in search of more playing time after being buried on the bench for two seasons. The situation did not appear any more promising with KU’s returning players and a promising freshman class.
White, a native of Richmond, Va., was rated as the No. 51 overall recruit in the class of 2012.
He averaged 2.4 points and 6.3 minutes per game his sophomore season.
