Bruce Weber and the Kansas State Wildcats are one big step closer to landing a key transfer target.
After naming the Wildcats in his top four in late April, along with Maryland, UT-Martin, and Oregon, Pittsburgh shooting guard transfer Parker Stewart is down to just Kansas State and UT-Martin, per a report from CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein.
Pitt transfer Parker Stewart is considering both Kansas State and UT-Martin, where his father Anthony Stewart is the head coach, per a source.

During his debut season at Pitt, Stewart averaged 9.1 points and 3.3 rebounds per contest, and led the Panthers from the perimeter after connecting on 38.6 percent of his three-point attempts.
Weber recruited Stewart as a 3-star prospect out of high school, so not surprisingly, with K-State set to lose Barry Brown following the 2018-19 season, the Wildcats are making their presence felt this time around, as well.
After sitting out one season at the school of his choice, per transfer rules, Stewart will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.
