Kansas State Adds Transfer Guard Max Jones to Roster

By Jayson Henderson

Kansas State University’s men’s basketball team has signed transfer guard Max Jones to a Financial Aid Agreement. Jones, a 6-foot-4 guard from Clearwater, Florida, brings experience from Division II University of Tampa and Cal State Fullerton. During his collegiate career, Jones has accumulated nearly 1,400 points and has shown versatility on both ends of the floor.

At Tampa, Jones was recognized as the 2021 Sunshine State Conference Freshman of the Year and earned two First Team All-Conference selections. He continued to excel at Cal State Fullerton, where he was named All-Big West Honorable Mention and played a key role in the team’s success, helping them reach the Big West Championship game.

In the 2023-24 season, Jones increased his scoring average and demonstrated his ability to make an impact on both offense and defense. He is expected to bring his scoring prowess and defensive tenacity to the Wildcats’ roster for the upcoming season.

Jones joins a group of talented transfers and incoming freshman, adding depth and experience to the team. With his signing, Kansas State continues to strengthen its roster for the 2024-25 season under the guidance of head coach Jerome Tang.
