Self says Jayhawks should know Silvio De Sousa’s status ‘by the end of the week for sure’

KU coach also provides the latest in the Billy Preston situation

Class Of 2018 big man Silvio De Sousa of IMG Academy continues to pursue the possibility of enrolling at Kansas early in time to join the Jayhawks this season. De Sousa, the No. 25 overall player in his class according to Rivals.com, committed to Kansas in August, signed with the Jayhawks in November and was officially cleared to join the Jayhawks on Dec. 22. He will report to campus on Dec. 26 and will be eligible to compete in games after being certified by the NCAA, a process that could be done in time for the Big 12 opener, Dec. 29 at Texas.

Class of 2018 big man Silvio De Sousa's quest to gain immediate eligibility for the current Kansas basketball season has entered its final stages.

And a decision on the status of withheld freshman Billy Preston appears to be not far behind.

De Sousa, the Angola native and IMG Academy power forward who signed with Kansas in November took his last final on Tuesday and Kansas coach Bill Self said Tuesday night, at the team's annual holiday shopping event at Wal-Mart, that he expected to “know by the end of the week for sure,” whether De Sousa was academically cleared to join the Jayhawks for the second semester.

“I do feel really optimistic about that one, unless something went really haywire,” Self added.

According to the IMG calendar, Thursday is final exam make-up day and winter break, which marks the official end of the fall semester, begins Friday.

De Sousa, a 6-foot-9, 245-pound forward from Angola who committed to KU in August and signed with the program during the early signing period in November, has eyed this possibility since first committing to Kansas.

He told the Journal-World then, while announcing his commitment to KU, that his goal was to play the first semester with IMG, graduate early and report to Kansas in time for the second semester.

Both he and his guardian, Fenny Falmagne, also said at the time that De Sousa's desire to get to KU early had everything to do with getting a head start on his college career and that he still planned on playing at Kansas during the 2018-19 season, which would have been his freshman year.

“What he truly wants to do is to be there as soon as possible,” Falmagne told the Journal-World at the time. “His graduation date is in December right now and he wants to get there (to Kansas) in December.”

Ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 25 overall player in the 2018 class, De Sousa's size, frame and physical presence would be a huge addition to a Kansas roster that has played the first 11 games of the season with 7-foot center Udoka Azubuike and 6-8, 215 pound Mitch Lightfoot as the only big men.

Preston has missed all 11 games this season, the last 10 as the result of a compliance issue involving Preston's vehicle.

Self on Tuesday night also said Preston's situation may be nearing a resolution, saying, “I don't anticipate him playing (on Thursday when KU plays Stanford in Sacramento), but I do anticipate it getting very close to knowing if and when he will be able to play. I'm pretty optimistic on it, our people are pretty optimistic. But it's at the point now where it'll be out of our hands and somebody else has got to make a decision.”

If KU is able to add both Preston and De Sousa, or either one of them, in time for the start of Big 12 play — KU opens its conference slate on Dec. 29 at Texas — Self said the team and the players likely would need some type of adjustment period, with Preston needing “seven to 10 days,” to get back up to speed and De Sousa needing “a couple weeks.”

“If we're able to have our full complement of players and you figure out everybody's role, depending on if and when we get our guys back, you're probably looking at the first of February before we know how to play and plug everybody in,” Self said. “But it'll still be a big bonus for us.”

ESPN.com broadcaster and international talent evaluator Fran Fraschilla said when De Sousa committed that he'd “bet my money on this kid,” and added that De Sousa was an “absolute stud” whom Self and the KU fan base would quickly come to love.

De Sousa, who turned 19 in October, has no plans of coming into the program with a star's mentality seeking immediate fame and glory.

“Most people know how I play basketball,” he told the Journal-World. “But I want to help them with my size and just rebound the ball and do whatever it takes to help them.”

Preston is getting a 12 game suspension just like Selby did. The big question is whether or not they count the first game because it wasn't for the unacceptable benefits. That is the standard suspension the NCAA gives (1/3 of the regular season games).

I've always believed that. I was talking to an ASU grad, and he was being nice, but I just mentioned that it is going to be a whole different team in a week or two. 1 of 3 are playing, and as Self infers, in about a week we will be deep.

Allan Olson 1 month ago

Jeff, your logic makes sense to me. The penalty standard has almost met, so Self is now optimistic, even though the NCAA can not have had the Preston file for more that a few days. It was a foregone conclusion from the gitgo..

Craig Carson 1 month ago

I certainly hope that is the case...

Jeff Coffman 1 month ago

I'm speculating based on past experience. If the threshold of the benefits is under a certain dollar amount, it is a 1/3 of games suspension. Since Self is alluding to an end, and the games is sitting at 11, it seems about right that the suspension is aligning with the process. We were waiting and waiting on Selby, and at game 9 or 10 they announced the twelve game suspension. They probably could have made it at game 1, but why the rush...it's the NCAA. Here is a case where KU wanted all the I's dotted and T's crossed to ensure that it would not be more than 12. Again the rule is 1/3 of the games, I don't know how many are on the schedule...I just assumed it was still about 12.

Marius Rowlanski 1 month ago

I hope you are correct but until I see either or both on the court I will believe it. As for your speculation, I'll give it an A, there is a certain logic to it.

Mike Hart 1 month ago

If that's true then they should just come out and say that. I've been reading the same old quotes from Bill Self for 2 weeks:

“I don't anticipate him playing (on Thursday when KU plays Stanford in Sacramento), but I do anticipate it getting very close to knowing if and when he will be able to play. I'm pretty optimistic on it, our people are pretty optimistic. But it's at the point now where it'll be out of our hands and somebody else has got to make a decision.”

Once again... useless drivel out of Self. No news. It has been 5 weeks and it hasn't even been turned over to the NCAA yet. Our University has been reviewing and gathering information for almost a month and a half... and this is all we know? I hope to God that it is "getting very close to knowing if and when he will be able to play"...I mean it has been almost SIX WEEKS and it still hasn't been turned over to the NCAA. Why is no one asking / writing about THIS? This smells rotten...

Matt Tait 1 month ago

You obviously saw it because you copied and pasted it into your comment, but perhaps you skipped past the part of Self's quote that says...

"...it's at the point now where it'll be out of our hands and somebody else has got to make a decision."

It has been turned over to the NCAA and that's why they believe the resolution is near, one way or the other.

Mike Hart 1 month ago

Actually, Matt... it does NOT say it has been turned over to the NCAA already... he said it is at the point where it WILL be out of our hands. My point.. .is that it was in KU's hands for 5-6 weeks. What on Earth could take so long... unless something was rotten. Tired of Self and Co always getting a pass relative to other coaches that are more fun to criticize.

Shannon Gustafson 1 month ago

Do you honestly believe Self & Co were sitting on their hands trying to move it along slowly for the sake of drama? I mean seriously, they are moving it along as fast as they can. They have NO reason to drag it out. They DO have reason to be as thorough as possible in their investigation so they don't leave it up to the NCAA to have to do any investigating themselves (which WOULD drag things along like Diallo's situation).

"Tired of Self and Co always getting a pass relative to other coaches that are more fun to criticize."

  1. You're on a KU message board.
  2. To echo Shannon...how exactly have the coaches "mishandled" this? I mean, aside from not telling you exactly what's going on (because, you know, they can't and all....)

Jerry Walker 1 month ago

You're right on the money, Mike.

There has been next to nothing reported on why it's taken so long to get this matter to the NCAA. The lack of reporting and the stench are what have many Jayhawk fans worried.

Steve Quatrocky 1 month ago

It cant be moved forward until the family, with no outside assistance, remedies the alleged issue, including paying back any improper benefits. My guess is it wasn't remedied until Preston's Mom came to campus with the paper trail and they were able to review it and put it into order for the NCAA to review. If my guess is right, the compliance department has done a timely and efficient job, and the university would never want to come out and say we are waiting on the family/player to do such and such as that could be construed as an admission of guilt and blaming the kid.

Dee Shaw 1 month ago

This gets old and tiring. DRAMA.

Mike Greer 1 month ago

There are three options for Coach and the compliance staff, 1) write off your number one recruit of the season, 2) play him without a through vetting and take a chance you'll have to vacate games, or 3) sit him out and investigate throughly, so he can play at some point in the season and not have vacating wins looming over your season. I'm not happy it's taking so long either, however, I see this as the best path forward. I'm not happy they didn't vet the car when Billy registered it with the athletic department back when school started. I'll assume the compliance staff is short handed.

Hopefully both players will join the team very soon.

Steve Quatrocky 1 month ago

My guess is the compliance folks were pretty well consumed by the NCAA's command about conducting an internal review for violations after the Adidas story broke. Coach Self has handled it perfectly and everyone's frustration is that he isnt in control of the compliance process, on purpose and by plan, so all he can do is offer a prediction or "educated guess" based on his knowledge of the NCAA and how the process works. I guess everybody would prefer he just say No Comment?

Joe Joseph 1 month ago

I think everyone would prefer a little more transparency, but, as you pointed out above, transparency probably wouldn't place BP's best interests at the forefront.

Mike Hart 1 month ago

Yes, I would prefer that Self say "No comment or I don't know". Instead, he said he isn't privy to the investigation.. and what's going on. If so, then don't speculate that it is nearing a resolution. There is clearly some impropriety, or it wouldn't take 5+ weeks to hand off to the NCAA. If there was impropriety... who is responsible... and what is going to be done about it? Self, in the end, is ultimately responsible for what happens to his players. These off-court issues are not new with Self's players. It is the utter lack of probing and digging in by anyone ... the lack of tough questions... that I have a problem with. I love KU basketball, all KU programs... and I'm not a damn bit happy about KU basketball players being in the headlines .. especially in the last 2-3 years. It has been an inordinate amount. Look at Darnell Jackson in 2015, Josh Selby before him, Josh Jackson and Vick last year... but you have to look long and hard to find any criticism written about the basketball program and institutional control. I'm not necessarily saying it should be written.... just the incredible double standard in how all the basketball program issues get swept under the rug... while KU writers writing scathing article after scathing article on Beaty at each and every turn.. and everyone chimes in with Beaty should be fired for lacking knowledge of the handshake incident with OU. Who demonstrates more lack of control of his players... Beaty or Self? The double standard is nauseating.

How does a program like KU not know what 13 men are driving and how they received these vehicles. This should have never happened, all involved are at fault including all coaches.

Joe Joseph 1 month ago

jfc, Rick. If all student-athletes have to submit vehicle title & registration information to the University, what's next? These are legal adults, after all, and should be entitled to at least some privacy.

Glen Miller 1 month ago

Did your parents always know what you were doing? I would guess they didn't because you went out of your way to make sure some things weren't known........ what makes you think that a coach who is in charge of so many more bodies would be able to see through that when your parents (who only had to keep track of you and any other siblings) couldn't even do it?

Marius Rowlanski 1 month ago

What would it take for Division I scholarship athletes to receive leased vehicles as part of their scholarship package? Obviously, everything would depend on working toward your degree, staying out of trouble and rule violations.

I'm not sure it's even a good idea, maybe just something to think about.

Jerry Walker 1 month ago

The basketball players, at least, have to submit their automobile information to the administration. Preston did that and they were aware of the car he was driving before he had the accident...per the LJW.

Barry Weiss 1 month ago

Like everyone else, I'm not sure why something like this would take so long. Any paperwork on a car could or should be produced in a week or less. Interviews....same. So I'd guess "they" knew the whole story very early on and are now just applying some penalty in hopes the NCAA will sign off on it. I'm not sure why we don't have any new kid disclose all his financials, assets, car's, etc before they are even on campus. Seems like we could have dealt with this issue before the season unless he got the car after he got here, in which case you wonder why these kids are not told to NOT take on some fancy car unless they buy it themselves or can show their family had the cash to buy if for them. Just a big mess to let this sort of thing jack up the team and our season. Even if we get both these kids, now its going to take a good month to get the team in some rhythm playing these new rotations etc. crazy.

Joe Joseph 1 month ago

Think about what you just said, Barry. All new kids should disclose their financials, assets, cars, etc. before they are even on campus? No way in a thousand years would that ever be okay.

My comment was not intended to spark political debate or name calling. (Though admittedly I knew it probably would.) It was simply made to reinforce the fact that the University could never legally require such a thing as suggested by Barry.

Jonathan Allison 1 month ago

Wow, his comment wasn't even about what the president has or hasn't done or should or shouldn't do... He's simply making a point that Billy Preston just like every American has a right to a certain degree of privacy, and that KU obviously has to do what is in KU's best interest but also should and presumably does consider what is in the interest of the student athlete as well. As for the NCAA shamatuerism policy, as well intentioned as it may have been, there has always been cheating and people compensating the top athletes and families via backchannels, and there likely always will be. Maybe Billy P and his family should have known better, we don't know much about the situation, but nothing so far has indicated that they were running around trying to make money off of Billy's recruitment, and the most likely scenario may be that the guy who sold them the car just wants Billy to "remember" him when Billy is a millionaire in a couple years.

The political commentary should be left for somewhere else. Let's just talk basketball. KU basketball.

Barry Weiss 1 month ago

I'm not sure what is so bad about having someone provide information, someone who is getting a scholarship. Hell, I think I had to. Maybe the world has changed since I went to KU, but I had to disclose information about my financial health, given my scholarship was contingent upon me not being some rich kid. What the heck is so intrusive about that??? Heck, I'm getting something, as is Preston. Damn, I must be old.

Lawrence McGlinn 1 month ago

We should not get too excited about these incoming players. KU's track record on integrating talented players immediately is not great. Josh Jackson is the only one who pops to mind as being immediately fantastic, and he is crazy talented (still don't know why he did not want to play for my Celtics, total waste of time in Phoenix, but we'll keep Tatum). Anyway, I hope these guys become available and one of them bucks the trend and becomes a major contributor. This team seems way more vulnerable than we are used to . They need some help.

that might apply to DeSousa but not to Preston..he played all the preseason games and has practiced all year..Self could play him Thursday and he'd have 12-15 points and 5-8 rebounds

I believe from the very beginning Self has said that Billy registered his car as he was supposed to.

Joe Joseph 1 month ago

I see that you're liking your own comments, Rick. Cute.

There's this thing called privacy. And people are entitled to it. A vehicle's registration need only be known by the state and the individual. LEGALLY speaking, there's no way the University could require ONLY athletes to submit vehicle registration information. And I'm guessing that requiring ALL students to submit vehicle registration information would be treading on unsteady legal footing.

Agree. Athletes shouldn't have fewer protections than those afforded to every other student at KU.

I personally am thrilled to hear this..hopefully KU gets the answers that they and all their fans want to hear..which is Preston and DeSousa are cleared to play this season..that puts KU back into the mix for a #1 seed with FF and NC abilities and aspirations

Mike Hart 1 month ago

Not sure I want Preston cleared to play if he knowingly used a car that he knew damn well he shouldn't be driving. I selfishly WANT him to play... but if KU knows he did something wrong.. and have purposedly dragged their feet in order to alleviate NCAA punishment in the hopes that holding him out of play for 12 games is enough... then that means KU has been misleading us all along, pretending to be ignorant of the circumstances... supposedly while they "investigate". The complete and utter lack of details... indicates a problem, or they would come out and say something.. anything.. .other than "financial details surrounding a vehicle". And Self's chimerical parade commentary about keeping Preston home from Florida so he could spend time with his mother who was visiting KU. That entire fact got let go by media and everyone. She was here "visiting KU" while her son and the basketball team were in Florida? Duh... she was on campus as part of the car issues... it wasn't happenstance like Self tried to pass it off as...

If some of you would read all the articles here, you would know that Billy had to register his car with the athletic department, that was disclosed at least a month ago. I suppose what he doesn’t have to do is verify when and how he acquired it. At that point it’s a bit too late.

Tony Bandle 1 month ago

If he comes, Billy's job will be to integrate himself into the scheme of the defense and offense as soon as possible, which should be sooner than later given he has been with the team since summer.

If he comes, Silvio's job will be to be physical, take up space and give five fouls that Dok won't have to give. Any offense will be a bonus. If any of you are expecting more, you are in for s disappointment. This is still a high school kid playing at the elite college level and anything more will be unfair.

Since he's here, Sam's job is to provide a spark on defense, give depth to the back line and make every guard know that playing time just got a little more competitive.

Craig Carson 1 month ago

DeSousa has also got to score a little bit as well..when he is in the game, teams wont double team a guy they know doesnt seek to score..he has to score a little bit to give the guards more room to shoot

Small sample size against Omaha, but I think I like what Same brings to the table more than what we've seen from Malik Newman. I would like to see Self start Sam or Preston when he becomes eligible and see how Newman reacts, that will tell us alot about his character and what type of player we really have.

Mike Riches 1 month ago

Self is absolutely right when he says it will take until February for everyone to be comfortable. Conference play is a really tough time to assimilate new players, especially with this year's stacked Big 12. Billy's been with the team but honestly, but there's no substitute for in-game experience, and there were several times during the Italy games when he just looked lost. Knowing the right time to get these guys significant minutes, when I anticipate most games will be pretty close, adds to what is arguably Self's most challenging coaching jobs since he's been here.

Lawrence McGlinn 1 month ago

I agree that this is Self's toughest coaching job yet. The 'Hawks have been incredibly consistent over the past 15 years, different strengths and weaknesses on each team, but similar results. This team reminds me a little of some of Roy's teams, getting thrashed by quick guards. Also, they are so thin. Self can't just roll the ball out and out-athletic and outnumber the teams he is facing now. My guess is he will find a way to get them to play tough defense and pack it in to compensate for our slow-footed guards, similar to his Illinois teams before he came here.

Tom Gillaspie 1 month ago

Correct me if I'm mistaken - Isn't this the first time Coach Self has clearly said "if" Preston is allowed to play, not when?

it might have been, BUT that was before the evidence was given to the NCAA..and they dont exactly act with a sense of urgency..but I wouldnt look too much into the "IF" part..there is no sense in giving the fans a full fledged promise by saying "when"..cause if he doesnt get cleared it makes Self look like a liar...he has to give himself some wiggle room

Marius - it's kind of a slow week. This isn't news. But if there's no article then people - including probably yourself - will be complaining that there's been no reporting on this issue. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

There are so many people on this site (mostly named Mike Hart) that are complaining and reacting with conspiracy theories. I've worked for years in the newspaper industry and sports television. There are reasons for the spin and the comments that are basically "no comment."

Some people (not you) just love to bitch, moan and stir the pot without knowing what is behind the curtain.

Barry Weiss 1 month ago

good points RJ. I just find this whole thing strange given everyone apparently knew Preston owned this car if he appropriately registered it with the administration, yet somehow, because he hits a curb with it and does some damage, now it needs to be looked at? Maybe I missed whatever it was that suddenly made our administration feel like they needed to see the financial aspects of this car, only after this minor accident.

The De Sousa part is different than what Self has said before. I think we've gone from 50/50 to 80% or higher on that front, so that's news for sure.

Regarding Preston, I have confidence that Self is handling it in a way that gives it the best chance of a positive outcome, which is not using the press to spin the NCAA. I imagine we will find that there was a NCAA violation and that Self self-imposed the same penalty that the NCAA likely would have (as someone noted, we are approaching the Selby suspension timeframe). The paperwork and investigative trail will have been done, the suspension will have been done already -- I think the NCAA is likely to give it a cursory once-over and rubber-stamp it. They generally like it when self-penalties fall in line with their standard practices. Bill Self is the most powerful man on campus -- to say he wouldn't have the compliance office all over this is ridiculous.

Matt Stone 1 month ago

I heard a rumor that it was a former players car. I believe Keith Langfords. I will go back to the source to confirm. But if a former player lets him borrow it and he wrecks it obviously there are financial issues to account for and NCAA may ask questions of why he was allowed to drive it and was it considered some kind of benefit. Will be glad when it is over. The thinned out bench with only 8 players is a major reason we have lost 2 games that and no front court presence. Stoked about Cunliffe and his work ethic n drive joining this team. Romeo Langford will be watching him close too. So Sousa and Preston will be welcome additions in the coming weeks if just to give fouls, guard rim and rebound. #RCJH
