Nijel Pack tops the list of the Top 50 players in the men’s basketball transfer portal, as the All-Big 12 First Team pick continues to make the rounds looking for a new home.
A horde of schools are interested in Pack, who averaged 17.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists per game last season. He’s already visited Purdue and Miami (FL) and is working to schedule a visit with Ohio State.
The staff at 247Sports.com put together the list.
Along with his scoring ability, Pack has three years of eligibility and is also testing the NBA waters while looking for a new home.

Texas Tech forward Jaylon Tyson was No. 9. Tyson transferred from Texas to Texas Tech earlier this year.
Joe Bamisile came in at No. 29. The former George Washington guard is headed to Oklahoma after averaging 16.3 points and 5.0 rebounds last season. He’s the highest-ranked transfer to a Big 12 school on the list.
Former West Virginia forward Jalen Bridges, who averaged 8.4 points and 4.8 rebounds last season, is No. 31. He’s already visited Alabama and has a visit coming up with Baylor next week.
