Kansas State Wildcats

A year ago, head coach Jerome Tang was reportedly after Antoine Davis when he was briefly in the transfer portal. So why not make a run at the next elite scoring guard in Abmas? He’s a more local target and after the spectacular year that Markquis Nowell just had, expect Kansas State to be appealing to many options.

The Wildcats could offer the Oral Roberts guard just as big a green light offensively and Abmas would be able to play in the Big 12. There’s plenty of playing time available as well and unlike some of the other power conference options, Abmas wouldn’t have any confusion about what his role would be.

Miami Hurricanes

The Hurricanes made the Final Four thanks to the elite guard duo of Isaiah Wong and Nijel Pack. Wong, who won ACC Player of the Year, could be back for another season or go pro. If he does depart, the program could certainly use Abmas for another season and he’d pair nicely with the remaining guard.

There are many selling points with Miami, including playing for a quality head coach. There should be NIL opportunities and playing time potential as well as a roster capable enough to make another Sweet 16 or better appearance.
