Former Kansas State point guard Cartier Diarra has found a new home. The senior starter for the Wildcats, who entered the transfer portal six days ago, has transferred to finish his college career at Virginia Tech, according to VerbalCommits.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Diarra, a native of Florence, S.C., will be reunited with former K-State assistant coach Chester Frazier, who just completed his first season as associate head coach with the Hokies under head coach Mike Young after spending seven years with Bruce Weber at K-State.
Diarra, who is expected to complete his degree this spring, started in 27 of K-State’s 32 games during the 2019-20 season and was the team’s second-leading scorer with 13.3 points per game while shooting 41.2% from the floor. However, he also shot a career-low 30.5% (51-of-167) from 3-point range . Diarra also averaged 3.8 rebounds and a team-leading 4.1 assists, but also suffered an average of 3.2 turnovers per game as well.
