According to multiple reports, Nebraska will accept the transfer of Miami shooting guard James Palmer. The former Scout.com Top 100 player will sit out next season, but have two years to play starting in 2017-18.
Palmer averaged 3.7 points and 1.4 rebounds as a sophomore in 2015-16.
Nebraska head coach Tim Miles' great luck of landing premiere players from other schools continued on Sunday. Former Husker Terran Petteway, Walt Pitchford, and current Nebraska guard Andrew White (exploring professional basketball opportunities) all started their career elsewhere. Anton Gill, who sat out this season, is also a transfer from Louisville.
“Those guys left a trail for me to follow,” Palmer told the Lincoln Journal Star. “That shows a good example of Nebraska getting good transfer players and really developing them.”
Palmer averaged over 15 points a game for St. Johns College high school in Washington, D.C. his senior year, leading the Cadets to a 27-4 record.
