Kansas State sophomore forward Antonio Gordon entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal.

Head coach Bruce Weber announced the news on Monday to K-State Athletics.

“Antonio has entered the transfer portal,” Weber said in a press release. “I appreciate his contributions to our program the past two seasons especially this season with all his health-related challenges. We wish him the best as he moves forward in his college career.”

Gordon battled injuries throughout his two years with the Wildcats.

In total, Gordon played in 47 games for K-State, 21 of which he started. In his two-year career, he averages 4.9 points on 41.8 percent shooting. He never got his three-point shot to fall consistently — shooting 22.2 percent (18-81).

This past season Gordon averaged 5.8 points per game. He was effective during fellow sophomore DaJuan Gordon’s absence to injury. He scored a season-high 23 points against Baylor earlier this year and had a 15 point, 14 rebound game against Oklahoma State near the end of the year.

Gordon is the first Wildcat to transfer this spring. It is unknown if more players will make their departure.
