Former Creighton Bluejays sophomore point guard Ryan Nembhard has announced that he has transferred to the Gonzaga Bulldogs. His brother and current Indiana Pacers point guard, Andrew Nembhard played for Gonzaga after transferring from the Florida Gators. Now the younger brother will follow in his footsteps and hope that this move will also help him get to the NBA one day. When he announced that he would be leaving the Creighton Bluejays, he was linked to the Arizona Wildcats fairly quickly. He did not commit to the program and this week picked up some momentum with Gonzaga.

This past season as a sophomore with the Creighton Bluejays, Ryan Nembhard averaged 12.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game. He pared those numbers with a field goal percentage of 43.2 percent and a three-point percentage of 35.6 percent. Nembhard was considered one of the best players in the transfer portal this cycle. This is a clear move by the Bulldogs to reload for next year and stay a serious contender in the NCAA. For Nembhard, this move could be a better fit for him with a fan base that still has very fond memories of his brother. The goal for him is to play well enough to get to the NBA in the coming years.
