The Nebraska Cornhuskers added another big shooter to the roster with the announcement Tuesday that Trevor Lakes has committed to Coach Hoiberg’s Huskers as a transfer.
The 6’7” 230 pound junior forward comes to Lincoln from the division II University of Indianapolis Greyhounds. Trevor hails from Lebanon, Indiana, a short 36 minute drive northwest of UIndy’s campus. After entering the transfer portal, Lakes had offers from a host of schools including Illinois, Xavier, and Wake Forest.
Trevor Lakes is a three point specialist. While in the Greyhound jersey he shot a career 41% from beyond the arc, and his usage was hardly light as his career attempts totaled 577. He led UIndy in scoring and rebounds last season while averaging 15.7 points per game and 6.2 boards.
While his three point shooting was just below his career average at 39.8%, he hit 101-of-254 total attempts from three. For comparison, Thorir Thorbjarnarson led the Huskers in shooting percentage and attempts for players who had any significant usage. Thor shot 37.2% on 48-for-129 shooting.
Lakes will have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules (because apparently moving from division II to division I absurdly requires sitting out a season) and will have one season of eligibility remaining for the 2021-2022 season.
