South Dakota State transfer Baylor Scheierman on Tuesday told Jonathan Givony of ESPN that he has committed to play at Creighton University after three seasons with the Jackrabbits.

Scheierman, who narrowed down his options to five schools on Monday, chose Creighton over Arkansas, Clemson, Duke and Nebraska. He entered the transfer portal last month and was immediately viewed as one of the top players on the market.

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.

Scheierman also declared for the NBA draft while maintaining his collegiate eligibility prior to committing to the Bluejays. He was reportedly invited to compete in the NBA G League Elite Camp, which will take place May 16-17 in Chicago.

He will have the opportunity to compete with other prospects in front of teams and gain feedback on his potential draft stock. He told ESPN that he would remain in the draft if he can get selected and earn a guaranteed contract.

Prospects that have declared for the NBA draft have until June 1 to withdraw their name and maintain their remaining collegiate eligibility.
