As a graduate transfer, Demir would be eligible to play immediately.,

Cal could use another big man, especially if 7-foot3 freshman Connor Vanover, who is in the transfer portal, opts to transfer elsewhere. However, the report that Demir is visiting Kansas State sugests he has signficiant interest in joining the Wildcats.
