Jalen Coleman-Lands may be leaving Ames after one season at Iowa State, but the Indianapolis native will not be going too far to play his sixth year of college basketball.

Coleman-Lands announced he will transfer to Kansas on Wednesday as a graduate transfer. This will be the 6-foot-4 guard’s fourth college after stops at Illinois, DePaul and Iowa State.

In one season as a Cyclone, Coleman-Lands averaged a career-high 14.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists while shooting 39.5 percent from behind the 3-point line as Iowa State scuffled its way to a 2-22 record overall and 0-18 mark in Big 12 regular season play.

Iowa State’s roster has undergone a massive overhaul since T.J. Otzelberger replaced Steve Prohm as the program’s head coach in March. The Cyclones will return only four players from last year’s rotation in George Conditt, Javan Johnson, Tre Jackson and Jaden Walker.
