Mawdo Sallah is on the move, again.

Less than one year after transferring to Kansas State from Mount St. Mary's, the 6-foot-9 junior forward has decided to finish his college basketball career at yet another school, according to a source.

Sallah's departure is not a surprise. He joined K-State as a graduate transfer hoping to prove himself in the Big 12 during his final two years of remaining eligibility, but he rarely played. Sallah saw action in 21 games, averaging 1.8 points and 1.9 rebounds off the bench. Quite the drop off from Mount St. Mary's, where he averaged 6.1 points and 5.3 rebounds as a sophomore starter.

He logged a season-high 11 points and nine rebounds in his second game with K-State, against UMKC. But he fell out of the rotation as the year went on, seeing playing time in three of K-State's final 16 games.

As a graduate transfer, Sallah will be eligible to play immediately at a new school next season.

His exit from the roster creates room for incoming recruit Shaun Williams, a three-star point guard from the St. Louis area.

K-State doesn't currently have any open scholarships, but more roster movement is possible. Austin Trice, a junior-college forward, is scheduled to make an official visit to Manhattan this weekend.
