Kansas State Wildcats talent Kamau Stokes is returning to the program next season, a source told FanRag Sports on Monday. He had originally entered the 2017 NBA Draft but did so without hiring an agent. By not signing any professional representation, he retained his eligibility.

Stokes averaged 11.7 points and 4.1 assists per game last season. He would also finish his sophomore campaign shooting 36 percent from the floor and 36 percent from beyond the arc.

The Wildcats are coming off a good 2016-17 season. The team advanced to the NCAA Tournament and lost to Cincinnati in the Round of 68.

Kansas State coach Bruce Weber has averaged 20 victories since arriving in Manhattan five years ago, going 100-68. His highlights include three trips to the NCAA Tournament and a shared Big 12 championship in 2013. In total, he has taken his teams to the NCAA Tournament 11 times over the course of his career.
