The Huskers fill the spot of Andrew White III With a JUCO.

Well, the Nebraska Cornhuskers had one scholarship to give up with Andrew White III splitting town. It looks like it's been filled.

Per his twitter, it appears Nebraska has signed Evan Turner, a 6'4 guard out of Fairfax, Virginia. Turner, who played for Paul VI High School, and originally signed with the Samford Bulldogs.

Turner averaged just over 22 minutes a game in 31 games for Samford, which he averaged 6.4 ppg and shot 34% from 3 point land.

It appears that Turner went off to Odessa College in central Texas last year, where he started all 31 games last year and upped his PPG average to just over 7 per game.

From his VerbalCommitment profile, Turner was a 3-star ranked PG, with the only ranking coming out of ESPN's coffer. There is nothing from Rivals or 247Sports from what I can find.

With his statement of being a 2018 class member, it must mean he has 2 seasons to play.

Someone had to fill the AW3 spot, and it appears that Taylor will be the man to do it. It will be interesting to see what his spot will be with Nebraska. When we get word from the AD on this, we'll share it with you.
