Lawrence has spent the past two seasons with the Cornhuskers. In those two collegiate years where he has made 62 appearances, including 35 starts, he has averaged six points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 21 minutes per game. He has also shot 41.5% from the field and 36.4% from three.

Lawrence played high school basketball at Roselle Catholic in New Jersey. He was a three-star prospect and the No. 263 overall recruit in the 2022 cycle. That’s according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He finished as a Top-50 SG in the class and the No. 10 player out of the state.

Lawrence is now the fifth loss to the portal of this cycle for the ‘Huskers. CJ Wilcher, Blaise Keita, Eli Rice, and Ramel Lloyd Jr. have all also chosen to transfer since Nebraska’s season ended just under two weeks ago in the NCAA Tournament against Texas A&M.

To this point, the program has made no new additions in the portal either. They’ll need to at some point, though, with them now having lost five transfers and three other seniors from this team yet no transfers and only two freshmen coming in for next season.

More on Wilcher entering the transfer portal

Nebraska guard CJ Wilcher entered the transfer portal last week.

Wilcher was a fourth-year junior in 2023-24 who averaged 7.7 points and 1.5 rebounds per game for the Cornhuskers. He shoots a career 36.8% from the 3-point line.

A 6-foot-5 prospect, Wilcher has been productive for Nebraska for three straight seasons. He averaged 8.1 points as a second-year college player in 2021-22, then averaged 8.0 points per game in his third year.

Wilcher scored a season-high 22 points this year in a game against Wisconsin, a game that came on a tail end of a stretch in which he scored in double figures for five straight games. The talented guard also had a stretch of 13 games in which he scored in double figures 10 times.

Prior to enrolling at Nebraska, CJ Wilcher spent one season at Xavier. He later transferred out of the program after averaging just 3.3 points per game on 10.0 minutes per contest.
