Cam Mack knows where he will be playing college basketball after announcing he would be transferring away from the Nebraska Cornhuskers. He has decided to play closer to his home of Austin, Texas, and has committed to the Prairie View A&M Panthers. This is a major pickup for the Panthers, but it is odd he didn’t get better offers after averaging 12 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 6.4 assists at Nebraska. He will have three years left to play due to him only playing one game in his freshman year.
Cam Mack commits to Prairie View A&M. Just really weren’t any other suitors for the Nebraska point guard who averaged 12 points and 6.4 assists. https://t.co/EOVYF1Hh8a

Mack should perform very well on a team in a smaller conference, so his numbers should see a significant jump up. A big reason he may have decided to move on from the Cornhuskers is because of several transfers that Head Coach Fred Hoiberg has arriving in the program over the next two years. This could still be a good thing for Mack who will get to play much closer to home in these uncertain times the world is in right now.
Mack is listed at 6’2″ and 175 pounds which are ideal numbers to play point guard in the NCAA. The former Cornhusker is a talented point guard and could find bigger schools interested after a year or two of stellar play with the Prairie View A&M Panthers. The 2019-20 season had the Panthers place first in the SWAC regular season and seemed well on their way to a SWAC Tournament title. Prairie View A&M had cruised to the semifinals before the Coronavirus ended the college basketball season. They know how to win games and Mack provides some serious talent to continue those winning ways.
