Following the departure of senior guard Markquis Nowell, Kansas State needed a point guard to run their offense in 2023-24. Enter Tylor Perry. 

The 5-foot-11 senior leaves North Texas as the 2023 Conference USA Player of the Year and the 2023 NIT Most Outstanding Player. In 2023, Perry averaged 17.3 points per game with 2.1 assists per game while shooting 41.3% on 3-pointers and 43.7% on all field goals.  

As one of the most coveted players in the transfer portal, Perry chooses K-State over Florida, Ole Miss and Texas Tech. 

Before spending his last two seasons at North Texas, Perry played junior college at Coffeyville Community College in Kansas. 

K-State has three scholarship openings remaining for 2023-24 as head coach Jerome Tang will look to build a roster of “dudes” built for another deep tournament run.
