Kansas State athletic director John Currie made his first public comments in response to the university's decision to deny Leticia Romero a release from her scholarship on Tuesday morning.

Currie shared some general thoughts on K-State's transfer policy on his Twitter account after ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas ramped up his criticism of K-State for the way it handled the situation.

Over the span of five tweets, Currie wrote the following:

"National transfer issues are complex/need reform. Student privacy prevents discussion of individual student issues. As AD I have an obligation to all our (student-athletes) and institution to ensure department and university procedures are followed. Generally speaking, on RARE occasions that we have denied a student-athlete transfer release it has been because of concerns about outside tampering, undue influence by third parties or procedures not being followed in an honest and forthright manner."
