Nebraska’s Andrew White III has been granted a full release from the school, coach Tim Miles confirmed Sunday.

“I spoke with Andrew late last evening in which he asked me how he can proceed with a release from Nebraska,” Miles said. “There have been discussions with Andrew and his father about Andrew's place in our program for months and this is his decision. Even though I am extremely disappointed, he will be given a complete release as the logistics are handled this week. We will move on. I am truly excited about our team and next season.”

White, who finished up his junior year this spring, will graduate before transferring, meaning he will be eligible to play next season.

The 6'7" guard declared for the NBA draft in April, but did not hire an agent, and later withdrew his name.

He 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.

White played two years at Kansas before transferring to Nebraska, and sitting out the 2014–15 season.
