Transfer season is officially underway for Kansas State men’s basketball.
Verbal Commits reported forward Mawdo Sallah will transfer, a move many had long suspected would happen to open up a scholarship for St. Louis point guard Shaun Williams, who signed his letter of intent last November. Sallah saw some decent playing time early and just missed a double-double with 11 points and 9 rebounds against UMKC, but he got a combined 12 minutes in seven games after the loss to Texas Tech on Jan. 6, finishing with season averages of 1.8 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.
Sallah spent three seasons at Mt. St. Mary’s, including a redshirt year due to injury in 2015-16. He graduated from MSMU in July 2017, allowing him to become immediately eligible at Kansas State. We wish nothing but the best to the 6-foot-9 forward from Gambia, who will be immediately eligible at whatever program he goes to next.
This may not be the only transfer for the Wildcats this offseason, since the Bruce Weber and his staff would need another roster spot to open up in order to give a scholarship to recruits like Illinois transfer Mark Smith or juco transfer Austin Trice. Stay tuned.
