White takes name out of NBA draft pool to return to Huskers

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Andrew White III will return to Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.

Coach Tim Miles said Wednesday night that White has decided to play his senior season with the Cornhuskers. White submitted his name for the draft on April 21 and didn't withdraw until hours before the deadline for underclassmen.

The 6-foot-7 wing tried out with the Utah Jazz, Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics before making his decision. White tweeted he had "very good performances and experiences through pre-draft but I will be doing one more year of college basketball."
