Junior college guard signs with K-State

Kansas State signed junior college basketball player Buchi Awaji to a scholarship Friday.

Awaji, a 6-3 shooting guard from Citrus College in Glendora, Calif., made an official visit Wednesday to K-State.

Nebraska and Georgia Tech also were among those who pursued Awaji, who averaged 16.5 points, five rebounds and shot 58 percent form the field.

“He’s a real dynamic scorer, can finish above the rim, is a tremendous pull-up shooter and can hit the three,” Citrus coach Rick Croy said.Awaji is the second player to sign in the spring signing period with the Wildcats. Abdul Herrera, a 6-11 center from Hutchinson, Kan., Community College, also has signed.
