Report: Dismissed K-State forward transfers to Memphis


Former Kansas State forward Nae’Qwan Tomlin is transferring to Memphis, ESPN reported Tuesday.

The Wildcats suspended Tomlin indefinitely in late October after an arrest for allegedly fighting at a sports bar.

Kansas State announced last Wednesday that Tomlin had been dismissed from the team.

The 6-foot-10 forward from New York entered the transfer portal on Friday and visited Memphis on Monday.

Tomlin did not appear in any games this season. He averaged 10.4 points and 5.9 rebounds in 36 starts for the 2022-23 squad that reached the Elite Eight.

Per ESPN, Tomlin is graduating this week and will be eligible to play for coach Anfernee Hardaway’s Tigers shortly after being admitted to the school.

Memphis is 7-2 this season heading into Saturday’s game with No. 13 Clemson. Kansas State is 8-2 going into Sunday’s home game against Nebraska.
