MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Former Badgers starting guard Kobe King is not done with college basketball, not just yet.

Reported by the Norwest Indiana Times Tuesday evening, King will suit up for Valparaiso during the 2021-2022 college basketball season.

This ends a two year journey for King, who left Wisconsin in the middle of the 2019-2020 season and then briefly committed to playing for Nebraska but the La Crosse native never suited up for the Huskers. Instead, King went undrafted in the NBA G League Draft but gained an NCAA waiver to be eligible for the upcoming season.

King takes Valpo’s final scholarship and will join two other former Badgers in Trevor Anderson and Joe Hedstrom who transferred to the program after this past season.

Since King used a medical redshirt year in 2018, he will have two years of eligibility left for Valparaiso head coach, Matt Lottich who is entering his ninth year at the helm.
