Per the K-State sports information office:
“After spending countless hours studying David’s situation, everyone involved agreed that the surest thing for him is to begin his professional career. It saddens me that David’s career at K-State ended this way. However, I’m extremely excited for his future and grateful for everything that he has done for our program.”
My dad was bummed I didn’t tell Dave when I spoke with him for this story that my dad was bummed Dave couldn’t play this year.
