By ADAM ZAGORIACARTERSVILLE, Ga— St. John’s loss is Nebraska’s gain.
Former St. John’s signee Cam Mack has followed former St. John’s assistant Matt Abdelmassih to Nebraska.
The 6-foot-3 junior college star pledged to Fred Hoiberg and Nebraska on Saturday after decommitting from St. John’s in the wake of the coaching change.
Mack averaged 19.1 points, 7.6 assists and 5.9 rebounds while shooting 46 percent from the field and 34 percent from deep.

He’s athletic, quick, explosive. He can really get to the basket, sees the floor. He’s shooting it 50 percent from three right now and 6-for-7 the other night from three.
