Kansas State Guard Anthony Thomas Enters Transfer Portal

Kansas State Athletics

Kansas State guard Anthony Thomas has decided to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal. He announced the news Wednesday on his Twitter account.

“Thanks Kansas State for a memorable year,” Thomas started in a statement. “The moments and friendships I’ve built will last a lifetime. But in order for me to move forward in my basketball career, I have to enter my name in the transfer portal. Thanks. I look forward in my next opportunity.”


Thomas redshirted this past season as the Wildcats advanced all the way to the Elite Eight and were dangerously close to the Final Four with a favorable path ahead of them. That’s after he played a season at Tallahassee Community College and another one before that at UT-Martin.

In the first of those two seasons, at UT-Martin, Thomas played in 22 of 24 games, with four starts. One of the team’s top freshmen, he ranked second with 23 made 3-point field goals (23) and fourth in scoring with his 9.0 points per game.

A year later at Tallahassee Community College, he ranked second on the team with 11.0 points per game and third in field goals (96), 3-point field goals (27) and rebounding (4.6 boards per contest). Thomas helped guide his squad to a 21-10 record, including a 6-6 mark in the Panhandle Conference, one of the nation’s top junior college leagues, and an at-large berth to the NJCAA Regional 8 Tournament.


From there, he transferred to Manhattan. However, he didn’t see any action, and he’ll now have three years of eligibility remaining wherever he chooses.
