07:28 PM ET 04.11 | For the second week in a row, the Kansas State Wildcat men's basketball team lost a player to transfer. Early last week, freshman guard Michael Orris announced he was leaving the program, and this week, sophomore forward Adrian Diaz made his intentions to transfer known. Orris, who originally chose Illinois out of high school, decided to follow Coach Bruce Weber to Kansas State instead. Orris played very little, only tallying four points in 15 games this season. Diaz seemed to get lost in the shuffle of forwards in Manhattan, averaging only seven minutes a game, and 2.7 points. More importantly, he averaged less than a rebound a game, never a good thing for a big man. After the season, Weber raised the possibility of Diaz red shirting next season while he develops his game. That doesn't seem like much of a vote of confidence.

Weber was always a decent recruiter, but not a great coach. Now he can't even keep his recruits? HA! Maybe he could do a mock funeral for them.
