Nebraska added another piece to their roster with the news that 6’7” forward Trevor Lakes was transferring from Division II University of Indianapolis.
In his junior season Lakes lead his team in scoring with 15.7 points per game while shooting 39.8% from three and 79.7% from the line. He also added 6.2 rebounds per game.
The addition of Lakes could prove beneficial for Nebraska as the forward was an excellent shooter at the D-II level and head coach Fred Hoiberg runs a system reliant on shooters. Nebraska has had a large amount of roster turnover since Hoiberg took over and has relied pretty heavily on transfers so Lakes should add some much needed shooting to a team that struggled immensely in Hoiberg’s first season.
The junior isn’t a grad transfer, though, so he may not be eligible for next season.
Lakes ultimately chose Nebraska after fielding interest from a variety of schools including Illinois, Wichita State and Xavier.
