Kansas State freshman Freeman transferring to Florida juco

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Kansas State forward Ron Freeman has elected to transfer after seeing little action as a freshman.

Wildcats coach Bruce Weber announced the decision Tuesday.

The 6-foot-5 Freeman only appeared in 11 games, averaging less than one point and one rebound, and intends to sign a letter of intent with Northwest Florida State College when the spring signing period opens.

Kansas State experienced a massive roster turnover last offseason, when leading scorer Marcus Foster and backups Tre Harris and Malek Harris were dismissed from the program. Starting point guard Jevon Thomas and fellow guard Nigel Johnson also transferred to other schools.

The Wildcats were 5-13 in the Big 12 and 17-16 overall last season.
