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.
