This offseason has featured a mass exodus out of Lincoln, but Tim Miles appears to have brought in at least one notable replacement.
According to a Tuesday report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Louisville transfer Anton Gill will be coming to Nebraska.

Gill was a four-star recruit out of high school, a member of the Class of 2013, and saw limited action in his two seasons playing for Rick Pitino at Louisville. He averaged 2.5 points in 9.4 minutes per game last season, only a slight uptick from his 1.3 points in 5.7 minutes per game the season before.

Despite his sparing play, he did contribute on a big stage this spring, scoring seven points in Louisville's Sweet Sixteen win over North Carolina State. He twice scored in double figures: a season-high 15 points against Florida International and 14 points against Florida State.
"I want to thank all of my coaches and teammates for two great years," Gill said in a statement published by The Courier-Journal back in March. "I really appreciate all of the support I received from everyone. I've talked to my family and will take my time to look at my next step after I finish out this semester. I'm just looking for a fresh start to try something new."
That report also mentioned Gill's high school background at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia. He averaged more than 28 points per game as a senior and twice scored 50 points in a game.
Gill will surely have to sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules, but his presence in Lincoln should help the Huskers down the road, especially after all the players they've lost this offseason. Gill could follow a similar path to Terran Petteway, the two-time All-Big Ten selection who also transferred in to Miles' program. Petteway spent a season at Texas Tech before breaking out as one of the Big Ten's best players in the past two seasons.
