MANHATTAN, Kan. – Sophomore forward Jack Karapetyan has voluntarily withdrawn from the Kansas State men’s basketball team, head coach Bruce Weber announced on Monday.

“Jack has decided he wants to transfer from K-State,” said Weber. “We appreciate his contributions and wish him the best in the future as he continues his college basketball career.”

Karapetyan will remain in school at Kansas State through the Fall and will consider transfer options upon completion of the semester. In June, he received a medical hardship waiver for the 2013-14 season after playing in just six games due to a foot injury. With the waiver, he has the full allotment of five years to complete his eligibility.

The native of Los Angeles, California, Karapetyan signed with K-State in July 2013 after one season at Cathedral Prep. He saw time in just six games as a true freshman in 2013-14 for a total of 20 minutes, scoring his first points on a field goal against Central Arkansas in four minutes of action on Dec. 1, 2013.

K-State continues preparations for the 2014-15 season and will host its annual Media Day on Wednesday.
