The Nebraska Athletic department announced on Monday that men’s basketball player Trey McGowens has received a waiver from the NCAA and is immediately eligible for the 2020-21 season.

“We are excited that Trey received a waiver from the NCAA, and we want to thank the work of our compliance staff in helping him become eligible for this season,” Nebraska Coach Fred Hoiberg said. “Trey has the experience and skill set to be a difference maker for us this year.”

McGowens, who transferred from Pittsburgh and signed with the Huskers in April, will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. A 6-foot-4, 191-pound guard from Pendleton, S.C., McGowens started 64 games for the Panthers over the last two seasons. He started 32 of 33 games last season at Pitt, averaging 11.5 points, 3.6 assists and 1.9 steals per game.

McGowens is one of four Husker newcomers with previous Division I experience, joining Kobe Webster, Teddy Allen and Lat Mayen. They join Dalano Banton, Shamiel Stevenson and Derrick Walker Jr., all of whom sat out last season on the Huskers’ 2020-21 roster.
