Transfer school has since added safeguards; KU says student was allowed to withdraw in lieu of expulsion but that it’s not responsible for him joining new team

It appears that happened without the knowledge of the new school’s top athletics officials, though it’s unclear exactly what — if any — university policy lapses enabled it.
