Jerome Tang has three available scholarships to continue improving the Kansas State roster, but isn't in a hurry to make that happen.
Earlier this week at an event in Salina, Tang said he thinks the Wildcats can be a good basketball team with the ten active players on the roster. Tang added that if the team can add the right three players, it can become a truly special group.
Tang's top priority is to find a veteran scoring guard to pair with new Wildcat Tylor Perry, and returning guard Cam Carter. The team is also looking for a versatile forward that can contribute both offensively and defensively. Tang also mentioned looking for a wing player with length, athleticism, and shooting ability.
Two stars from last year's team are currently participating in the NBA draft process in Nae'Qwan Tomlin and Keyontae Johnson. Tang predicts that barring a surprise decision, he anticipates Tomlin to return for another season in Manhattan and for Johnson to remain in the NBA draft.
