Nebraska forward Nick Fuller is transferring to play his senior season at another school, the program announced Monday.
The Cornhuskers redshirt junior averaged 5.7 minutes and 1.1 points in 15 games this season, all career-lows. His only career start came two seasons ago against Iowa, when he scored 5 points and pulled down 5 rebounds in a career-high 30 minutes. His career-high in points came just three days earlier, when he had 12 against Maryland. Fuller redshirted his first year at Nebraska, and will finish this season with a degree and the ability to play at another school without having to sit out a season.
The opportunity for more playing time at a different school “was the biggest part” of his decision to transfer, according to the release.
“Everybody’s happy for him because he’s going to end up going to a place that needs him; he’ll have a chance to have some success, and he will adapt immediately,” Nebraska coach Miles said in the release. “He’ll have no trouble adapting to whatever system he goes in. He can be a valuable piece for another team. I want that for him, too.”
