While the ongoing saga of Kansas State‘s leadership battle continues among those at the University, Wildcats fans received an update on Friday afternoon that solidified the next steps for their former star basketball player.

According to a report from TheAthletic’s CJ Moore, Kansas State senior forward Nae’Qwan Tomlin has officially entered the transfer portal after being removed from the basketball team on Wednesday night.


The interesting situation with Tomlin came to an unfortunate end on Wednesday night after students on campus organized protests against university president Richard Linton, for what some suspect as mismanagement in Linton’s office.

Forty-eight hours before this announcement of Tomlin’s release, K-State students at Bramlage Coliseum chanted the New York native’s name and asked for him to be reinstated from his indefinite suspension, which stemmed from an arrest for disorderly conduct and brawling back in October after an incident at Tubby’s Sports Bar in Aggieville.

Tomlin now hits the portal as one of the top available players in the portal at the semester break and after graduating from Kansas State on Saturday, will be able to immediately play at a separate program in January.

Jerome Tang and the Wildcats will have to rebound quickly from the commotion surrounding the basketball team as the squad gets set to take on LSU in their first road game of the season on Saturday, December 9th at 12:30 PM CT.
