WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Wake Forest men's basketball program announced Saturday (June 30) the addition of transfer Andrien White. A 6-3 guard, White transfers to Wake Forest from Charlotte, where he averaged 15.0 points per game for the 49ers last season.
White, a native of Richmond, Va., will sit out in 2018-19 due to NCAA transfer rules and play his final season of eligibility for the Demon Deacons in 2019-20.
"We are excited to welcome Andrien into our program,” said head coach Danny Manning. “He is a great player who will bring a veteran presence into our team. Andrien gained a lot of experience during his three seasons at Charlotte and he will help us every day in practice this season. We look forward to having him on the court in 2019-20.”
White started 73 of 87 games over his three seasons at Charlotte, averaging 12.2 points and 4.0 rebounds. Last season he became the 28th player in 49er history to reach the 1,000 career point mark. White had 53 career double-figure games, including 18 20-point games, during his Charlotte career.
During his junior season in 2017-18, White ranked second on the team in scoring at 15.0 points per game. He tied a career high with 30 points at East Carolina, matching a mark he had against Marshall during his freshman season in 2015-16. A 2016 Conference USA All-Freshman Team selection, he set a 49er rookie record with 67 3-pointers.
“I am excited to be able to transfer to Wake Forest,” said White. “The decision was a no-brainer for me. I have the opportunity to learn from Coach Manning and his staff, who have played at the highest level. It is the chance to play in the ACC, which is a dream come true, and get a degree from a world-class university.”
