Another Kansas State Wildcat is set to leave Manhattan.
A source told The Athletic on Monday afternoon that K-State junior guard David Sloan will enter the NCAA transfer portal.
Sloan confirmed his intentions to transfer on both his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
“This past year has been filled with many blessings as I am grateful to have spent it with the Wildcat Nation,” he said. “I would like to personally thank Coach (Bruce) Weber for the opportunity to represent K-State and the entire Wildcat community.”
Sloan, a 6-foot guard from Louisville, Ky., will have one year of eligibility remaining and will have to sit out one season due to NCAA transfer rules. He was one of the top community college players in the class of 2019, ranked No. 26 according to JucoRecruitting.com and No. 35 by 247Sports.
Sloan is the second Wildcat to transfer out of the K-State men’s program after Cartier Diarra announced his intentions to leave. Diarra recently committed to Virginia Tech for his final year of eligibility as a graduate transfer.
Sloan transferred to K-State after two seasons at John A. Logan College in Cartersville, Ill. He helped the Volunteers to a 53-11 record and a pair of Great Rivers Athletic Conference regular-season championships. In his two seasons, he averaged nearly a double-double of 14.1 points and 9.8 assists while shooting 49.2 % from the field.
He led the NJCAA in assists in his two seasons at John A. Logan with 304 during his freshman season and 326 as a sophomore.
In his one season in Manhattan, Sloan played in 32 games and made nine starts. He averaged 5.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists. Sloan had a season-high 17 points against Kansas on Jan. 20.
Sloan shot 41.1% from the field and 27.1% from the 3-point line.
