Andrew White III commits to Syracuse men's basketball

Former Nebraska guard will be eligible to compete in 2016-17 for Syracuse

Former Nebraska guard Andrew White III committed to the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team on Sunday afternoon.

White announced his decision through his Twitter account, where he posted a photo of himself in a Syracuse T-shirt with the caption "Excited to join Syracuse Basketball."

As a graduate transfer, White will complete his last year of eligibility at Syracuse. He will not have to redshirt and should be able to play immediately for the Orange.

White began his college career at Kansas, where he played in 44 games over two seasons before transferring to Nebraska. While at Nebraska, he averaged 16.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game while shooting 48.1 percent from the field.

White was one of the best 3-pointer shooters in the Big Ten last season. He ranked 12th in the conference in 3-point shooting percent during 2015-16, connecting on 41.2 percent of his shots from behind the arc.

White delivered double-figure scoring performances in 28 of the 34 games he played in last season and reached the 30-point mark twice, including a 35-point performance in a victory over Penn State.
