MANHATTAN — With all the defections from the Kansas State men’s basketball team in the offseason, the Wildcats need to replenish their ranks.
They added to their roster on Monday as it was announced that former St. John High standout Kade Kinnamon has joined the Wildcats as a walk-on beginning with the 2015-16 season.
Kinnamon played for his father Clint, who has led the Tigers to three straight state titles.
Kinnamon is a 6-foot guard who was a high school teammate of K-State signee Dean Wade, the 2015 Kansas Player of the Year.
Kinnamon was a Topeka Capital-Journal third-team All-Class 2A selection his senior season in 2014 and redshirted last season at Seward County Community College after suffering a toe injury that required surgery.
He is the second player to join the Wildcats as a walk-on along with Manhattan's Pierson McAtee. Coach Bruce Weber still has two open scholarships for next season.
