Jeremy Jones: Kansas State Senior Guard to Leave Program

Newly-appointed Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber announced in a statement on Thursday afternoon that senior guard Jeremy Jones will not return to the Wildcats’ program this season.

Jones spent one season at Kansas State after transferring in from Seward County Community College (KS).

As part of Weber’s statement, he and Jones had met several times over the course of the past few weeks, but the 6-foot-2 guard has made the decision to leave.

Last season, under former coach and current South Carolina head man Frank Martin, Jones appeared in 20 games, averaging 3.1 points in just over eight minutes of action.

It is unclear if the Chicago-native will make the decision to transfer and pursue other basketball-related opportunities.

Kansas State begins a new era under Weber peering ahead to the 2012-13 season, one that will hinge largely on the production of returning back court mates Rodney McGruder and Will Spradling.

Weber spent nine seasons at Illinois prior to moving to K-State this past spring.
