Very good performances and experiences through pre-draft but I will be doing one more year of College Basketball.— Andrew J. White III (@AndrewWhite03) May 26, 2016
Star Nebraska basketball player Andrew White III has announced that he will be returning to Nebraska for his senior season. The senior shooting guard had entered his name for consideration in June's NBA draft. He went through several workouts with teams including the Boston Celtics, Utah Jazz, Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons.
Nebraska's Andrew White has withdrawn from the 2016 NBA Draft, sources told @CBSSports.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) May 26, 2016
White's return solidifies what should be one of the deepest teams NU has had in a long time and as the teams leading returning scorer, will be looked on as a vital piece of the puzzle as they look to capitalize on a strong finish to last season and make a run back to the NCAA tournament.
White will return to a deep and talented lineup which will feature six top 150 players and will be looked to as one of the leaders on the floor and off. He will be asked to carry much of the scoring burden to a lineup that returns much of its core from last season and adds former Louisville transfer Anton Gill, touted freshmen Isaiah Roby, Jeriah Horne and center Jordy Tshimanga to the mix.
