Dedoch Chan joins Nebrasketball as a late transfer

Huskers add forward Dedoch Chan in time for the 2018 season

Mississippi Gulf Coast sophomore forward Dedoch Chan stopped by Lincoln for an official visit on Wednesday and grabbed a scholarship offer from the Big Red during his visit. He will have three years of eligibility to use while at Nebraska.

The 6’8, 215lb forward scored 17pts and 8.6 rebounds per game last season for Mississippi Gulf Coast last season and wasted little time in announcing his commitment to the Huskers less than 24hours after his visit to Lincoln.

Originally from Rochester, MN, Chan is a nice addition to the Big Red’s roster as he shot 46 percent from the field, 72% from the free throw line, and was 31 percent from behind the arc last year at Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Chan had offers from several mid-major schools such as Montana State, McNeese State, and Pacific among others but decided to pick the Huskers after a short courtship and trip to Lincoln.

With two scholarships open this season, Tim Miles was searching for depth to replace departed center Jordy Tshimanga and add some depth to his roster. Miles needed to snag someone who was immediately eligible to play as most basketball players transfer after the season ends after the spring semester.

With the addition of Chan to the roster, the Huskers have one remaining scholarship for the 2018-19 season and could find another late transfer like Chan or put someone such as Tanner Borchardt on scholarship as he’s set to see a lot of time filling in with Tshimanga’s absence.
