Earlier this year, guard Andrew White announced he would be transferring out of Nebraska for his final year of eligibility. On Sunday, it was announced he will end his collegiate basketball career with the Syracuse Orange.
CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported that White told them he would be heading up to New York to play Jim Boeheim’s program, which made their way to the Final Four as a No. 10 seed in the 2016 NCAA Tournament.
He will be eligible to play immediately this year.
