After two years of sitting on the bench for the Kansas Jayhawks, shooting guard Andrew White decided it was time for a change. The 6-foot-6 sophomore spent the past season watching Andrew Wiggins and Wayne Selden, after losing minutes to Ben McLemore as a freshman.

With Selden returning and the Jayhawks bringing in another Top Ten caliber recruiting class, the future did not look bright for White. He announced to his team earlier this month that he would be transferring and several schools have expressed interest in him. Along with Wake Forest, Notre Dame, Florida State, Miami and Maryland had all reached out to White.

NBC Sports recently reported that Nebraska has emerged as a frontrunner. The Cornhusker's assistant coach, Kenya Hunter, recruited White when he was at Georgetown. The Demon Deacons' own Danny Manning was an assistant at Kansas under Bill Self when White initially committed to the play for the Jayhawks.

White averaged about six minutes of playing time as a sophomore after clocking just five minutes per game as a freshman. Coming out of the Miller School in Chester, VA. in 2012, White was pegged as a four-star recruit by and ranked as the No. 51 player in the nation.

Landing White or West Virginia transfer transfer Terry Henderson could seriously improve the Deacons' back court heading into the 2015-16 season. Keep checking in with Blogger So Dear for more updates as Manning looks to finalize his roster for the upcoming season.
