Dom Williams won’t be joining a roster full of strangers when he transfers to Northern Iowa.

Former Kansas wide receiver Quan Hampton announced Tuesday he has committed to the Panthers, too.

Hampton’s plans became public just a day after Williams, a former KU running back, announced he would transfer to UNI. Both decided earlier this offseason to enter the transfer portal and leave the Jayhawks.

Hampton, a 5-foot-8 slot receiver from Texarkana, Texas, redshirted at KU during the 2018 season, then played sparingly in 2019, the first year Les Miles was in charge of the program.

During his final season with the Jayhawks, as a redshirt sophomore, Hampton appeared in seven games, mostly in the second half of the season. He caught two passes for 19 yards and one touchdown. Both catches came late in KU’s road loss at Oklahoma State.

He’ll have two seasons of eligibility remaining and will be eligible to play for UNI in the 2020 season, because he’s transferring to the FCS level.

Hampton arrived at KU in the Class of 2017, as a three-star prospect, per Rivals. That year, as a true freshman, he played in just six games due to injury, but caught 21 passes for 145 yards.

And so it begins. I sure hope Miles has a plan in all this jumping ship.

I like the guys talent but 5'8"....probably not in the plans. So...

C'mon Stephen. Dom was running third at RB and Hampton was well down the roster 2-3 deep. We are not losing production with these two guys. They are fine young men who simply want to play some FB and it was not going to happen here.

The ability of some KU fans to immediately gravitate towards depression and curling up in the fetal position is truly astounding.

Kyler Pearson 5’ 8” 170. Just signed as a 2 star. Miles has shown a desire to get bigger at the WR position but many teams can benefit from a quick slot receiver. Perhaps it just wasn’t the right match for Quran’s talents. Best to him in Iowa.

Matt Gauntt, you are so right! Just like all the fans who said the didn’t want our Jayhawks to be #1 in Basketball because they said it was a curse. Many said it put a target on our back! We ‘ALWAYS’ have a target on our backs! And how is that curse working out? LOL
