Wichita State Adds Kansas Transfer Conner Frankamp
Wichita State has added Kansas transfer Conner Frankamp.
Frankamp will enroll for the second semester of this season and then become eligible in the second semester of the 2015-16 season, the Wichita Eagle reported.
The 6-foot-1 Frankamp also considered Colorado and Creighton.
“I think Coach [Gregg] Marshall can improve my game quite a bit,” Frankamp told the paper. “I’ve been very impressed with how Ron [Baker] and Fred [VanVleet] have developed as players. I think they have a good chance to get to the league (NBA).”
Frankamp averaged 2.5 points in in 8.3 minutes last season but opted to transfer in October.
