Nebraska basketball’s junior guard Andrew White has announced he will declare for the 2016 NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent in order to maintain his eligibility. White will be able to attend workouts with NBA teams starting April 26.


White is also able to participate in the NBA Combine. The Combine takes place May 10-15th in Chicago. White has until May 25th to decide whether he wants to keep his name in the draft or remove it to maintain his eligibility.


“I will graduate from the University of Nebraska next month with one year of NCAA eligibility remaining,” White said in a statement regarding his 2016 NBA Draft Declaration. “I continue to be grateful to Nebraska and its basketball program. Participation in the NBA draft activities will afford me the opportunity to demonstrate my skills in the most elite settings. I look forward to the challenge.”


White averaged 16.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game on his way to earning honorable mention All-Big Ten honors in 2016. White finished the 2016 season ranked fourth in the Big Ten in 3-point percentage, sixth in scoring, and 15th in rebounding.

“We support Andrew fully in the process and we will help him any way we can,” Nebraska Coach Tim Miles said. “We would love to have him back here at Nebraska, but we will support him as he tests the waters on this process.”
