Kansas State Transfer Nigel Buck It is one of the most recognizable names on the market – if not the best option out there – and its interest continues to grow among the top schools in the country. After visiting Purdue earlier in the week, the Pack will now visit two other major schools, making specific visits to Miami this Saturday and Ohio State later in the month, According to John Rothstein of CBS Sports,.
A native of Indianapolis, the Pack has been linked to Purdue largely due to location and contact with the head coach the painter died. Early in his coaching career, Painter worked with Bruce Weber, a former buck coach at Kansas State. However, Miami and Ohio can be solid options for the Pack, too. The Hurricanes just made it to the Elite Eight, and they only lost the Final Four due to a second-half touchdown. Ohio State reached the second round of the NCAA Championship but eventually lost to the Final Four.
Whether one of these three teams or a different team relegates to the Pack, there is no doubt that there will be a surprising addition of talent to someone’s roster. A four-star prospect who knocked out Indianapolis Lawrence Central in the 2020 enlistment category, the Pack committed to the Wildcats in June 2019 and was a hub for the Wildcats brushes. In two seasons with the Wildcats, the Pack became a star.
The pack averaged 15.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game over his two seasons with the Wildcats. Last season, Buck averaged 17.4 points and 3.8 rebounds per game, resulting in the first team’s top 12 team honors. The Pack recently entered his name in the 2022 NBA Draft class, but he could still return to college if he chooses to do so.
Pack — who also entered his name in the NBA Draft pool — told Peegs.com last Thursday that he wanted a school that could put him in the position of a true goalkeeper, thus better preparing him for a future in the NBA. Buck said that Kansas State could still be that school but wanted to explore all of his options while leaving the door open for wild cats.

“Obviously K-State has been great for me the past two years,” Buck told Peegs.com. “They’re still an option. I’ve just opened up my options to see what works best for me. I’ve obviously gotten calls from many places. I want to see which places suit me best, what style of play is best for me. If nothing looks better than I have, K-State will be the choice.”
