While Nebraska Cornhuskers transfer Andrew White III still hasn’t decided where he’ll spend his final year of eligibility, today shed some more insight on where he won’t. From CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein:
Miami is no longer a potential landing spot for Nebraska grad transfer Andrew White, sources told @CBSSports.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) August 20, 2016
ESPN’s Jeff Goodman also mentioned that Michigan State is out of the running (we may or may not have known that already). That brings White’s suitors down to two: the Syracuse Orange and the VCU Rams.
It’s worth mentioning that White is originally from Richmond, Va., which is where VCU is located.
White’s decision may not come down to geography, though, but rather academic calendars. VCU’s last day to register for the fall semester is August 31. Syracuse’s, on the other hand, is September 6. If White decides he’s going to the home town Rams, he’ll have to do so soon if he wants to be eligible in the fall.
Should White join SU, he’d be the third transfer on this year’s roster, joining former Colorado State guard John Gillon and former Providence center Paschal Chuwkwu. White, who scored 16.6 points per game for Nebraska last year, would be a major contributor right away and assist greatly in replacing the production of the departed Malachi Richardson.
