News recently broke that the Nebraska Cornhuskers would be making a key addition to the team’s roster heading into next season. Fans learned that Pittsburgh transfer Trey McGowens would be joining the team heading into what should be an important 2020-’21 season.

During his two seasons with Pittsburgh, McGowens played in 66 games and averaged 11.5 points, 3.6 assists, and 3.3 rebounds per game in his final year with the Panthers. And while Pittsburgh struggled on the court the last two years, McGowens did do some major damage in a few conference games.

McGowens will now join a Nebraska roster still very much in transition. Fred Hoiberg inherited a roster devoid of depth and experience last offseason. And while he’s done quite a bit to improve in those areas, he still needs players like McGowens to help. Unfortunately, McGowens is expected to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules. After that, he will have two years of eligibility remaining.

And while nobody knows what McGowens will end up doing this season for Nebraska, he should help Hoiberg continue to improve the team’s roster. Fans have to be excited about picking up a player like this.
