Denis Clemente, a 6-foot-2 guard who left the Miami (Fla.) basketball team after being suspended late in the regular season, has enrolled at Kansas State and will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2008-09.
Al Alvarez, founder of the Miami Tropics AAU team that Clemente once played for, confirmed that Clemente has enrolled in two summer sessions at K-State. He must sit out next season under NCAA transfer rules.
Clemente averaged 9.8 points and 26 minutes before being suspended for an undisclosed violation of team rules, according to the school.
Alvarez said other schools recruiting Clemente were Wichita State, Seton Hall and Arizona.
"He's probably the kid with the biggest upside we've ever had," Alvarez said today. "He'll definitely be an impact player there at K-State."
