Peete wants to play exclusively point guard

MANHATTAN, Kan. --Wanting to play exclusively point
guard, Kansas State sophomore guard Fred Peete has elected to
transfer, coach Jim Wooldridge announced Thursday.

Peete, one of just two players to start all 29 games, averaged
13.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game this season.

"Fred has expressed his desire to exclusively play the point
guard position," Wooldridge said. "He feels like this is his
best position to reach his goal of playing in the NBA.
Consequently, he has decided to transfer to a program where he
can play the point guard position 100 percent of the time. We
wish him the best as he pursues his individual goals."

Peete transferred to Kansas State last spring after playing one
year at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.

Kansas State was 17-12 last season, including 6-10 in the Big 12
Conference.
