Kansas State graduate transfer Mawdo Sallah is leaving the program after one year in Manhattan, Kan., according to verbalcommits.com.
The 6-foot-9, 235-pound forward didn’t see the floor much for the Wildcats. His best game came against UMKC on Nov. 14, 2017. He scored 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting and had 9 rebounds.
He never materialized into a consistent contributor, however, for coach Bruce Weber’s group that made it to the Elite Eight. So, he’ll try to find a new home with his one year of eligibility remaining.

Sallah played two seasons at Mount St. Mary’s, where he started nearly every game of the team’s 2016-17 season.
After helping Mount St. Mary’s to the NCAA Tournament, he transferred to Kansas State. He played in 21 games for the Wildcats and averaged 7.7 minutes of action this season.
Kansas State had a solid year and have a chance to make another deep March Madness run next season. Sallah will be elsewhere, however, and will be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer.
