Nebraska basketball player Isaac Copeland has received a waiver from the NCAA and is immediately eligible for the upcoming season. Copeland, who transferred from Georgetown to Nebraska in January of 2017, received a medical redshirt after playing in just seven games because of an injury in 2016-17. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.
“We are ecstatic for Isaac”, said Nebraska coach Tim Miles. “I am just so happy. He is a tremendous player but just for his career and what his goals are I think this is really important. He certainly helps our team a great deal.”
Copeland played in 73 games at Georgetown in two-plus seasons, making 49 starts for the Hoyas. As a sophomore in 2015-16, he averaged 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game in 33 starts for the Hoyas.
