Transfer junior guard David Sloan announced his decision to make an early exit Monday afternoon via Twitter.

Instead of wearing the purple and white for the men’s basketball team, Sloan entered his name in the NCAA transfer pool.

“I would like to announce I will be completing my degree, and final year of eligibility elsewhere,” Sloan’s tweet reads. “I would like to personally thank coach [Bruce] Weber for the opportunity to represent K-State and the entire Wildcat community. Thank you Wildcat fans, the entire coaching staff, and my teammates. I wish you all the best!”

Sloan leaves after Kansas State signed junior college standout Rueadale Williams Sunday afternoon.

Sloan’s stint in Manhattan was short-lived. He came to K-State after playing two years at John A. Logan community college. In the 2019-2020 season, Sloan averaged just over five points and two rebounds per game.
