Nebrasketball Player Profile: Chris McGraw

Chris McGraw
Scott Bruhn

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have Otterbein transfer Chris McGraw back for another season as a walk-on. The communications major out of Columbus, Ohio previously played at the college level for Ohio University and Otterbein University before finding his way to Lincoln for last season which he sat out.

McGraw was a member of the DIII Cardinals of Otterbein University just outside of Columbus in the 2019-2020 season. He did not play during the season due to injury, however. Prior to that, he committed to Ohio University and played in four games as a Bobcat his freshman year. While he missed his only shot from the court in action, he did get to enjoy wins over Wilberforce, Iona, Marshall, and Akron.

Prior to college, McGraw did a postgraduate year at Hargrave Military Academcy where he played with now Nebraska teammate Trey McGowens. The Tigers went on to a No. 4 ranking nationally while posting a 33-4 mark. During his high school career, McGraw played at Bishop Watterson and averaged 7.8 points per game as a senior.

McGraw is a valuable addition to the team as a hard worker on the court in practices and could provide needed depth in the backcourt down the road, especially in practices. He certainly proved to help in that role last season on the scout team during a pandemic ravaged season. McGraw was a Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll awardee in both the fall and spring semester last season as well.
