The news was first reported by Paul Suellentrop and Bob Lutz of the Wichita Eagle, who went into detail on Frankamp's situation.
Frankamp, the City League’s career scoring leader, also considered Colorado and Creighton. He played his freshman season at Kansas before deciding to leave the basketball program in October.
Frankamp must enroll for the second semester at a new school in order to be eligible after the first semester of the 2015-16 school year. He would have the rest of that season to play, as well as the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.
“I think Coach (Gregg) Marshall can improve my game quite a bit,” Frankamp said. “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 decided to transfer in October after being passed over in the perimeter rotation by Frank Mason, Wayne Selden, Devonte' Graham, Kelly Oubre, Brannen Greene and Svi Mykhailiuk.
The 6-foot sharpshooter was likely the best midseason transfer available, and he's a great get for Marshall and the Shockers. Frankamp will likely immediately enter the Shockers' starting lineup next season, as Tekele Cotton is a senior and Ron Baker could declare for the NBA Draft.
Frankamp was rated as the composite 43rd best recruit in the country in 2013, per 247Sports. He will be the one of the most highly coveted players to ever suit up at Wichita State.
