Conner Frankamp transferring to Wichita State

Former Jayhawk guard Conner Frankamp announced his decision to transfer to Wichita State on Monday afternoon.

“I think Coach (Gregg) Marshall can improve my game quite a bit,” Frankamp told the Wichita Eagle. “I’ve been very impressed with how Ron (Baker) and Fred (VanVleet) have developed as players. I think they have a good chance to get to the league (NBA).”

Frankamp played one season for the Kansas Jayhawks before announcing his decision to leave KU back in October. Frankamp’s departure indicated his desire to play more minutes and have a bigger role on the team.

Frankamp, currently a sophomore, is not eligible to play until after the first semester in the 2015-16 season. Frankamp. a former top 50 recruit, can then play for the remainder of that season, plus the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.

The guard considered transferring to Colorado and Creighton before choosing his hometown squad. Wichita State currently has the longest regular season win streak in the NCAA.

According to the Wichita Eagle, Frankamp scored 2,275 points at Wichita North High School. Additionally, he played on the under-17 USA Basketball team and won a gold medal in the 2012 FIBA World Championships.

Last year, Frankamp averaged 8.3 minutes while scoring 2.5 points per game. He appeared in 27 games in the 2013-14 season.
