Nebraska junior Andrew White III has declared for the NBA draft but will not hire an agent, the university announced.

“I will graduate from the University of Nebraska next month, with one year of NCAA eligibility remaining,” White said. “I continue to be grateful to Nebraska and its basketball program. Participation in the NBA’s draft activities will afford me the opportunity to demonstrate my skills in the most elite setting. I look forward to the challenge.”

White finished last season averaging 16.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. He ranked sixth in scoring, 15th in rebounding and fourth in three-point percentage in the Big Ten.
