Sad News: Just In Kansas State Wildcats Confirm Another Major Setback And Top Talented Fans Favorite Decommits From K-State Football

**Kansas State Transfer Forward Arthur Kaluma Joins Texas Basketball**

Arthur Kaluma, a transfer forward from Kansas State, has signed with Texas, bolstering the Longhorns’ frontcourt. Kaluma, who chose Texas over SMU, signed an athletic scholarship agreement, as announced by head coach Rodney Terry on Friday.

Kaluma, standing at 6-7 and weighing 225 pounds, was one of the top players left in the transfer portal. Last season, he averaged 14 points and seven rebounds per game at Kansas State and has one year of eligibility remaining.

“Texas has a strong tournament history,” Kaluma told Horns247 after his official visit. “The team is really good and has a solid chance for a deep tournament run. That would be amazing for my final year.”

Kaluma initially played for Creighton, helping them reach the Elite Eight in 2023. He joins a revamped Texas roster for the 2024-25 season, which includes five-star guard Tre Johnson and key transfers such as Oregon State guard Jordan Pope, Arkansas wing Tramon Mark, and Indiana State’s Jayson Kent and Julian Larry.


Following the departure of forwards Dylan Disu, Dillon Mitchell, and Brock Cunningham, Texas will field a frontcourt featuring Kaluma, Kent, 6-11 senior Kadin Shedrick, 6-8 Ze’Rik Onyema, 6-7 Devon Pryor, Vanderbilt transfer Malik Presley, and freshmen Nicolas Codie and Jamie Vinson.

Kaluma, a native of Glendale, Arizona, has played in 101 career games with 99 starts, amassing 1,233 points and 619 rebounds over three seasons at Kansas State and Creighton. He has a career shooting percentage of 43.1% from the floor and 72.8% from the free throw line.

He has scored in double figures 68 times, including ten 20-point games, and recorded nine double-doubles. Last season, Kaluma was one of just four Big 12 players to rank in the top 15 in both scoring and rebounding, achieving double figures in scoring a team-high 28 times and recording five double-doubles.

“They’ve always had players like me,” Kaluma said of Texas. “Timmy Allen is a good example. I can fit in anywhere and succeed.”
