SDSU transfer Baylor Scheierman commits to Creighton

South Dakota State transfer Baylor Scheierman, a previous Kentucky basketball target, has committed to Creighton.

After cutting his list down to Arkansas, Clemson, Creighton, Duke and Nebraska, the 6-foot-6 forward officially chose the Bluejays on Tuesday.

Scheierman’s previous top 10 included Kentucky, Arkansas, Clemson, Creighton, Duke, Kansas, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Texas, and Wake Forest.

The Wildcats heavily pursued the sharpshooting wing before cutting ties due to NIL demands, sources tells KSR. With Scheierman looking for money and role guarantees, it was simply not a path Kentucky was willing to go down.

Scheierman is represented by NEXT Sports Agency, which recently negotiated Nijel Pack‘s two-year, $800,000 NIL deal with Florida businessman John Ruiz when Pack transferred from Kansas State to Miami.
