The Nevada men’s basketball team added Wichita State transfer Grant Sherfield, per Jeff Goodman of Stadium.

The 6-foot-2 guard will have to sit out next season due to the NCAA Eligibility rules, but will be eligible for 2021-22 season with three years of eligibility remaining. He was rated the 10th-best transfer available for the 2021-22 season per ESPN.

Sherfield, a four-star recruit out of high school, committed to UCLA when Nevada head coach Steve Alford was at UCLA. Shortly after Alford was fired, Sherfield decommitted and re-opened recruitment. He chose Wichita State over finalists Wake Forest and Minnesota.

Starting in 12 games last season, Sherfield averaged 8.1 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 25.1 minutes per game with the Shockers last season. He shot 35.3 percent and 30.4 percent from beyond the arc. Sherfield scored in double figures ten times, tallying a career-high 15 points twice versus Central Arkansas and Abilene Christian.

Sherfield is the Wolf Pack’s sixth player of their 2020 class. Nevada has now reached the NCAA’s limit of 13 total scholarship players for this next season. That number could go down if a scholarship player decommits or does not return to Nevada.
