In the midst of a busy offseason, Nijel Pack, one of the sweetest shooters in college basketball, joined Miami after two seasons with Kansas State. Pack intrigues as a prospect because he offers one elite skill: shooting the basketball.

During his time at Kansas State, Pack scored 810 points (15.3 per game) on 646 field goal attempts (58.2 percent true shooting).

As a sophomore, with nearly 57 percent of his field goal attempts coming from beyond the arc (9.1 3PA per 40 mintues), Pack averaged 17.4 points per game, while shooting 43.6 percent from beyond the arc (7.5 3PA per game) and 84.5 percent from the line.

Pack’s shot and touch are both pure. The 6-foot guard has a quick, buttery release and deep range on his 3-point jumper. Like a lot of great shooters, Pack moves well without the ball; he’ll float around the court, looking to lull his man to sleep, then dart off a pindown.

According to Synergy Sports, Pack scored 1.62 points per spot-up possession (80.8 eFG%) on no-dribble jumpers this season, per Synergy Sports, a Top 10 number nationally (50+ possessions).
