Sports Editor

Former University of Kansas guard Conner Frankamp has decided to transfer to Wichita State University this spring semester — verbally committing to WSU, as the news was released by Wichita Eagle’s Shocker beat writer Paul Suellentrop and sports columnist Bob Lutz Monday.

Frankamp will be eligible to play for the Shockers starting Dec. 12, 2015. He’ll have two-and-a-half years of eligibility.

He was the No. 7-rated point guard and No. 34 ranked player nationally in the class of 2013 by, which is considered the country’s No. 1 authority on college football and basketball recruiting.

After deciding to transfer from KU in late October, the Wichita native took recruiting visits to WSU, the University of Colorado and former WSU conference rival, Creighton.

The 6-foot, 165-pound guard, known for his shooting ability, is the Wichita City League’s all-time leading scorer, racking up 2,275 points in his time at Wichita North High School.

In his freshman year at Kansas, he played in 27 games. He also averaged 11 points per game during the 2014 NCAA tournament going 7-for-14 from the three-point line.
