Former 5-star recruit will transfer to Kansas after one season at Mississippi State
After playing one season at Mississippi State, Malik Newman will play for Kansas starting in 2017-18
Mississippi State transfer Malik Newman has committed to Kansas, a source told CBS Sports on Friday morning.
The development was first reported by ESPN.
Newman must sit out next season per NCAA rules and will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2017-18 season.
As a freshman, Newman averaged 11.3 points last year for the Bulldogs, but the guard was never healthy after suffering a toe injury in the preseason.
Newman was the No. 8 player in the class of 2015 according to the 247Sports composite rankings and was one of the first notable recruits signed by MSU coach Ben Howland after he was hired last year.
