Duke is reportedly pursuing Kansas State guard Nijel Pack, who entered the transfer portal earlier this week.

Pack averaged 17.4 points per game for the Wildcats this season. He shot an impressive 43.6% from 3-point range on 7.6 attempts per game.

Duke’s interest in Pack was first reported by college basketball insider Jon Rothstein.

Pack was named the Big 12’s Most Improved Player in 2021-22. He earned 1st Team All-Big 12 honors, too.

Listed at 6-foot, 180 pounds, Pack’s biggest strength is his scoring ability. His true shooting percentage was 60.3%, which would be an elite mark in any conference for a guard — let alone vs. the vaunted defenses of the Big 12.

Duke’s rotation in 2022-23 still has several question marks. Trevor Keels and Wendell Moore Jr. could turn pro or return to school. Paolo Banchero, AJ Griffin and Mark Williams are all expected to enter the draft.

Duke has the No. 1 overall recruiting class in 2022 according to 247Sports Composite rankings, but the class lacks a true point guard. 5-star Dariq Whitehead and 4-star Jaden Schutt are capable of handling the ball, though.
