MANHATTAN, Kan. — New Kansas State men’s basketball coach Jerome Tang keeps reeling in recruits.
The team’s latest addition is former Florida forward Keyontae Johnson.
Johnson is a former SEC preseason player of the year for the Gators, but is most known for collapsing in a game in December 2020 and hasn’t played a full season since.
Johnson has reportedly been medically cleared to play. He will have one year of eligibility, although he could technically appeal for a medical redshirt after missing most of the last two seasons.
The 6’5″ forward averaged 14.0 points and 7.1 rebounds in his last full season, earning first-team All-SEC honors.
He was averaging 16.0 points in the first four games of the 2020-21 season before collapsing and falling face-first to the floor during a game against Florida State.
