Nick Russell and Juevol Myles Leave Kansas State Program

K-State fans won't be seeing any of Wally Judge or Nick Russell next season.

With the recent commitments of James Watson and Jeremy Jones to Frank Martin and Kansas State it was somewhat apparent that someone was going to heading out the door simply due to a numbers game. Instead of only one player leaving though word has come down now that two players will not be back next season in Manhattan. Reserve guards Nick Russell and Juevol Myles both have decided to leave the program.  

Russell as most K-State and Big 12 fans know started out last season as a starter but has been a somewhat frequent visitor into Frank Martin's proverbial doghouse. His statistics last season reflect a disappointing season as he averaged only 4.2 points a game while collecting a few DNP's coaches decision along the way. He came in as part of the 2009 recruiting class as a 3 star prospect but could never find his way into playing consistent minutes with his defense often times being mentioned by Frank Martin as the reasoning for lack of playing time. No word has come down yet on where Russell will transfer but he has said it will be a place where he can continue to grow as a player.

Juevol Myles came to K-State last season after transferring in from Tallahassee Community College. He averaged 2.1 points a game in a total of 19 contests. His high water mark of the season came on New Year's Eve against North Florida as he scored 12 points and dished out 3 assists in the Wildcats 100-76 win.

Unfortunately the act of players "deciding" to transfer at BCS programs is commonplace and happens all around with many recent examples within the Big 12.  As for K-State itself the departures of Russell and Myles represent the third and fourth transfers since the start of this past season with Freddy Asprilla and Wally Judge who both quit on the team mid-way through the season.
