Former KU walk-on Garrett Luinstra transfers to Central Missouri

Kansas guard Ochai Agbaji (30) and Kansas guard Garrett Luinstra (20) erupt after a three by Kansas guard Chris Teahan (12) late in the second half, Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019 at Allen Fieldhouse.

Former Kansas walk-on and Free State standout Garrett Luinstra has found his new home.

Luinstra, who was a member of the Kansas men’s basketball team for one season, announced via his personal Twitter account that he was transferring to the University of Central Missouri. He will be immediately eligible to play during the 2019-20 season after transferring from Division 1 to Division II.

In his first collegiate season, Luinstra played 11 minutes in 10 games for the Jayhawks.

Luinstra came to KU after averaging 19 points per game and earning all-state and Sunflower League Player of the Year honors during his senior season at Free State.

The 6-foot-2, 155-pound shooting guard earned all-league honors twice with the Firebirds. Luinstra set Free State’s single-season scoring record by recording 456 points during the 2017-18 season while leading the Firebirds to the Class 6A state title game. It marked Free State’s first trip to the state championship game in program history.
