When a second scholarship for the 2018 season opened up midway through July following the transfer of junior center Jordy Tshimanga, Nebraska had to search high and low for an immediately eligible player who could also contribute right away.

 

After a few weeks of looking, the Huskers appear to have found a prospect who fits the bill in both of those regards.

 

Mississippi Gulf Coast sophomore forward Dedoch Chan arrived in Lincoln for an official visit on Wednesday, picking up an offer from head coach Tim Miles in the process.

 

On Thursday, the 6-foot-8, 215-pounder announced he had committed to the Huskers.

 

Chan will move to Lincoln and enroll in classes for the start of the fall semester and have three years of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2018-19 season.

Solid take by Tim and crew. I really like his effort and motor that he plays with. He also is around the ball a lot and really hustles to rebound, he plays hard and competes. Hopefully, this addition makes us a team that will get up and down the floor now that we don't have a slow big. He looks the part to be an addition to a team that wants to run and adds size to that big man room.

Are we scraping De bottom of De barrel for players now? 

 

(I'm sorry, I'm sure he's a fine player.)

Why would you say that?

Partially because he's a JuCo they're bringing in a couple months before practice starts as a reaction to having a late summer transfer. 

 

Mostly for the joke, though.

I dont know why this kid didnt have any major offers. His list is not overly impressive but he did put up decent numbers in highschool and in the JUCO ranks. He is the style I hope we move toward. A kid who can run the floor a bit and get rebounds.

 

I didnt realize till a bit ok we have him for 3 years... Does make it potentially a bad situation if he is really bad. 

 

Overall, if he can give us 10 minutes off the bench.. I am happy.

had he continued to improve at the JUCO he was at, he probably would have garnered more major offers. most schools are done recruiting for 18. also dont think most schools have evaluated their need for 2019 JUCO recruit, unless he was just too good to pass up.

Well, that's fun.  Lots of posts in this thread that aged well.  Anything in the article as to why he left?

haven't read the article but assuming it has something to do with the fact that he couldn't even beat out Tanner Borchardt for minutes

Dedoch Chan joined the Nebraska basketball program in early August, finalizing Tim Miles’ plan to fill up his roster with scholarship players.

 

Chan is now gone. He’s left the program, the school confirmed on Tuesday, just two days before Nebraska’s exhibition game against Wayne State.

 

Chan averaged 16.8 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College last season. In a nine-game stretch from Jan. 25 through Feb. 22, Chan carried his team, averaging 24.7 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.

 

Chan had scholarship offers from Norfolk State, McNeese State, Montana State, UAB, Pacific, Cal State Fullerton, Jacksonville State and Nebraska. He was not expected to contribute much this season, but had three years of eligibility remaining. He didn’t appear in Nebraska’s closed scrimmage against Iowa State on Oct. 21.

I totally missed that this happened. 

 

I was thinking, I havent seen anything from him in the stats sheet. Looked at Huskers.com and saw he was gone... Searched twitter and then here.

 

 

That was a quick turnaround.

Really weird, as his twitter page still shows Huskers.  I wonder if this was not more about classes and grades.

You wouldn't think it was about grades since he got through a two year JUCO in one year, but who knows.  I would guess it was more about expected playing time (or lack thereof).

The article stated that he would not participate much this year.  I guess he could of had a different picture. Any idea where he went?
