K-State basketball announces addition of 6-foot-10 Georgetown transfer Brandon Bolden

Kansas State officially announced the addition of 6-foot-10 Georgetown transfer Brandon Bolden to the Wildcats’ men’s basketball team Friday.

Bolden, a Sumter, S.C., native, committed to Georgetown in the fall of his junior year of high school and spent his senior season at Quality Education Academy in Winston-Salem, N.C. He played in four games with the Hoyas and will have three years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2013-14 season because of NCAA rules.

“We are very excited to add Brandon to our program,” K-State coach Bruce Weber said in a statement. “With such a large incoming freshmen class, we really wanted to add a more experienced player to our team plus we needed someone with his kind of size and length. I think the year off will be great for Brandon to not only develop and improve his game, but also to get stronger in the weight room. He will be a great asset next season just as a practice player to make our guys better.”

Bolden is the seventh player to sign with the Wildcats this season, joining Maine transfer Justin Edwards and incoming freshmen Neville Fincher, Marcus Foster, Wesley Iwundu, Nigel Johnson and Jevon Thomas.
