A few months ago, former Nebraska guard Andrew White III decided to end his career with the Cornhuskers and transfer out of the program. However, it seemed then that the split wasn’t a good one and now the rising senior is telling his side of the story.
Many starting painting White in a negative light since this is second transfer as he let Kansas for Nebraska ahead of the 2014 season. He spoke with Brendan Quinn of MLive and talked about why he left Nebraska in the way he did.
“When I was expressing those concerns, I thought that being one of the older guys (on the Nebraska team) would kind of put me in a place where I could talk about those things. So I talked to Tim Miles and he expressed his thoughts about me. We’re grown men and we had the right to have some differences in opinion.
“Ultimately, that’s what kind of sparked my decision. I didn’t want to be in a situation where there was a bridge burned and I wouldn’t be able to do what I dreamed of doing. So I thought it was best for both parties to move on in another direction.”
To add fuel to the fire, Andrew White is likely going to end up at a powerhouse program. He is deciding between Nebraska’s Big Ten rival Michigan State or Syracuse, who advanced to the Final Four in the 2016 NCAA Tournament.
In the 2015-16 season, White recorded 16.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game for the Cornhuskers.
