North Carolina Central basketball coach LeVelle Moton has officially announced the addition of former Kansas State swingman Dominique Sutton.
“I was ecstatic when Dominque contacted us to express his interest in transferring to North Carolina Central University,” Moton said in a statement. “We are excited to have a student-athlete of his caliber as a part of our men’s basketball program.”
According to the Raleigh News & Observer, Sutton will seek a NCAA waiver that would allow him to play immediately without sitting out a year.
Sutton transferred from K-State to be closer to his family and two young daughters in Durham, N.C. He told the Raleigh newspaper he was excited about the new destination.
“It was difficult being out there (at K-State) flying there and flying back home,” Sutton said. “There was a lot going on. This will make it simple, just to come back home and be comfortable and play and just have fun.”
