South Dakota State transfer Baylor Scheierman on Monday narrowed his list of potential collegiate options down to five schools, his agent, Austin Walton, told Jonathan Givony of ESPN.
Scheierman entered the transfer portal last month and immediately was viewed as one of the top players on the market. He received interest from several programs and is now choosing between Arkansas, Clemson, Creighton, Duke and Nebraska.
The 6-foot-6 guard was named the Summit League Player of the Year after averaging 16.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.3 steals in 35 games. He shot 46.9% from 3-point range and was the only Division I player to lead his team in rebounding and assists.
In addition to entering the transfer portal, Scheierman also declared for the NBA draft while maintaining his collegiate eligibility. He was reportedly invited to compete in the NBA G League Elite Camp, which will take place this month in Chicago.
Scheierman will now have the opportunity to compete with other prospects in front of teams and gain feedback on his potential draft stock. He could opt to hold off on announcing his transfer decision until the conclusion of the elite camp.
Prospects that have declared for the NBA draft have until June 1 to withdraw their name and maintain their remaining collegiate eligibility.
