Kansas State has officially granted Wally Judge a release from his scholarship, according to a team spokesman.
The sophomore forward, who quit the K-State basketball program in early February, is now free to discuss transfer options with other schools. The Wildcats now have two available scholarships, and can add two new players during the spring signing period.
There has been uncertainty about Judge’s status with K-State for a few months. He has stayed in school and attended sporting events throughout the semester, leading some to speculate he could rejoin the team next year or simply gave up the game. But both seem unlikely now.
Attempts to reach Judge have been unsuccessful, and Wildcats coach Frank Martin has said he hasn’t spoken with Judge since Judge informed him he was leaving the team.
Adam Zagoria reports Judge will take an official visit to Rutgers this weekend. Maryland, Florida and Minnesota are also believed to have expressed interest in the former high school All-American.
