Jameer Nelson Jr., who is the son of former NBA star Jameer Nelson was one of the best mid-major players in the entire country last season. He will now be playing at the power-five level after making a massive decision in the transfer portal.

Nelson Jr. thrived last season at Deleware, averaging 20.6 points per game along with 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists on the year.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Borzello, the first-team All-CAA selection will be playing for the TCU Horned Frogs next season after an extremely impressive junior season.

TCU impressed this season in a big way, making it into the NCAA Tournament and narrowly falling in the Round of 32 to Gonzaga.

Many took notice of this decision and believe that he can certainly help TCU as they look to reload and make another NCAA Tournament run next season.

This is certainly a huge addition for TCU. Jameer Nelson Jr. is listed as the fourth-best player in the transfer portal according to 247 Sports.

He will have some big shoes to fill at the program. TCU senior Mike Miles Jr. revealed that he will declare for the upcoming 2023 NBA Draft after averaging 17.9 points per game this past season.

Nelson Jr. will get to play alongside senior guard Damion Baugh, who took his name out of NBA Draft consideration earlier this week.

The Big 12 is always extremely competitive and likely will be again next season. However, TCU has put themselves into the fold of contenders next year with this massive addition.
