MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Bruce Weber has hit the junior college ranks to try and find a true point guard for next year's Kansas State team.

The Wildcats announced the signing of David Sloan on Tuesday. He comes from John A. Logan College in Cartersville, Ill.

Sloan shined in two junior college seasons, becoming a National Junior College Athletic Association All-American after leading the NJCAA in assists for two seasons. He averaged 14.1 points and 9.8 assists for his junior college career.

"David is a great addition and we are excited to welcome him and his family to our program," K-State head coach Bruce Weber said in a release. "He gives us an experienced guard who knows how to play and lead his team. He is a high-level passer who can also score.

"He also comes from a successful and quality community college program led by (head coach) Kyle Smithpeters. We feel that he is a really good fit for us and we are looking forward to getting him to campus."

Last season, the Louisville, Ky. native averaged a double-double to complete his junior college career with 16.1 points and 10.2 assists per game. Sloan posted double-digit assist games in 39 of 64 career games with John A. Logan College while tallying 24 double-doubles.

He figures to fit into a guard rotation featuring Cartier Diarra, Mike McGuirl and Shaun Neal-Williams.
