Nebrasketball: Nathan Hawkins, Sergej Vucetic, Tim Wagner Leave Program

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

The two scholarship players and walk-on will not be a part of Tim Miles' program in the future.

A week and a half after the Nebraska men’s basketball team saw its season come to an end, they have announced that three players have decided to leave the program. Freshmen Nathan Hawkins, Tim Wagner and sophomore Sergej Vucetic will seek other opportunities elsewhere.

Wagner, a walk on shooting guard, redshirted last season after an injury sidelined him before he even got started. Despite being known to be one of the better shooters on the team, he still had a lot of work ahead of him before he would have seen much playing time in Lincoln.

Vucetic, a 7’ 1" center has been in the program for two seasons, seeing limited playing time. In his time at Nebraska, he recorded 12 points and 8 rebounds.

The biggest surprise was Hawkins, who at times figured into the rotation for the Huskers and was thought of by some to be a big piece of the future for Coach Miles. Hawkins, a big bodied point guard who had the ability to hit the outside shot, saw minutes the last half of the non-conference play and the first part of the Big Ten slate. His biggest moment came vs. Indiana as he hit a three to bring the Huskers even after trailing by 13 at halftime.

No destinations for the three players have been announced at this time. With these departures the Huskers now have three available scholarships to fill for the 2014-15 season.
