Kansas State secures a key addition by landing Samford transfer Achor Achor. A standout player on a Samford team that made the NCAA Tournament, Achor averaged 16.1 points and 6.1 rebounds last season. This move continues Kansas State's recent success in the transfer market, following commitments from junior college prospect Chimobi Ikegwuruka and Cal State Fullerton guard Max Jones. Achor, a 6-foot-9 forward, boasts impressive versatility, shooting 43.5% from beyond the arc. He will have two seasons of eligibility at Kansas State.

By the Numbers
  • Achor averaged 16.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game last season.
  • He shot 43.5% from three-point range on 62 attempts.
