Another Husker enters NCAA transfer portal, bringing total to five departures
Yet another Nebraska basketball player has decided to look for options to play elsewhere.
Akol Arop announced on Twitter this week that he is entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal and will explore opportunities outside of Lincoln. He becomes the fifth player since the start of the college basketball season to depart the program.
Elijah Wood, Teddy Allen, Yvan Ouedraogo and Bret Porter have also put their names into the portal.

Arop, a 6-foot-5 forward, was the No. 1 prospect out of Nebraska as a member of the 2019 recruiting class. He was ranked just outside the Top 300 overall players and was a 3-star recruit. He did not play during the season because of a knee surgery in November.
As a freshman during the 2019-20 season, Arop appeared in 21 games and scored 22 points, grabbed 28 rebounds, blocked 6 shots and recorded 6 steals.
Arop will have three years of eligibility remaining at his next destination. Nebraska ended the season with a 7-20 record.
