MANHATTAN — The Kansas State basketball team added two walk-on players today.

Brian Rohleder, a 6-foot-3 guard formerly of Bishop Carroll, and Shawn Meyer, a 6-foot-5 point guard from Lee's Summit, Mo., will suit up for the Wildcats this season.

"Shawn and Brian are both excellent additions to our program," K-State coach Frank Martin said in a statement. "Both players have already shown the necessary hard work and commitment to help our basketball team."

Rohleder helped Carroll reach the Class 5A tournament last season. He averaged 13 points, six rebounds, three assists and 1.5 steals as a senior.

Meyer averaged 16 points, eight rebounds and two assists throughout his high school career.

Football traffic concerns — K-State and Manhattan law enforcement are advising fans to be prepared for delays while making their way to Snyder Family Stadium for the Wildcats' season opener against Eastern Kentucky on Sept. 3.

Several major road construction projects are under way in Manhattan, the most significant K-18 on the west side of the city. During much of the season, the roadway will be reduced to a single lane in each direction between Ogden and Manhattan.

Additional road construction will be found on I-70 from east and west, and near campus on Claflin Road.
