It’s shaping to be a big recruiting month for the Kansas men’s basketball team and that goes far beyond the arrival of Mitchell Robinson, the 7-foot center and former McDonald’s All-American who is expected to make a visit to campus this weekend. By Matt Tait
Former Kansas point guard Aaron Miles, who got a crack at the NBA and spent eight years playing overseas and later coaching on KU coach Bill Self’s staff, officially was named the head coach of the NBA G League’s Santa Cruz Warriors on Wednesday. By Matt Tait
While it’s true defensive coordinator Clint Bowen has found early signs from the Kansas football secondary encouraging at preseason practices, the program’s assistant head coach also will tell anyone listening his current opinion of the group doesn’t necessarily correlate with fall success. To truly know how the best of his defensive backs mesh as a unit, Bowen will have to wait and see cornerbacks Hasan Defense and Shakial Taylor, safeties Mike Lee and Bryce Torneden, and nickelback Derrick Neal react to in-game adversity.

With a powerful senior lineup that includes three All-Americans, the Kansas volleyball team will enter the season ranked No. 8 in the AVCA coaches poll, released Wednesday.
Team bonding and a better understanding of the newcomers was a major point of emphasis for the Kansas men's basketball team during its recent trip to Italy. And while many Jayhawks felt progress was made in that department, they also feel there's still room to do more. By Matt Tait
The Dallas Cowboys have one of the most passionate fan bases on the planet but even given that, it would be difficult to find one who watches the team as often and as closely as Kansas left tackle Hakeem Adeniji.
Less than four weeks away from his team’s season-opener, Kansas football coach David Beaty might not be able to characterize any of his team’s running backs as a definitive No. 1 option on the depth chart. But as far as Beaty is concerned, the offense would be better off with more than one featured back. By Benton Smith
After cruising through four games against Italian foes on the basketball court during their eight-day exhibition tour of Italy, the Jayhawks boarded a boat on Monday morning and spent their final day abroad on an actual cruise.
For all that ailed the Kansas offense in 2016, nothing deflated the football team’s chances a year ago quite like turnovers. None of that, of course, happened under the watch of first-year KU offensive coordinator Doug Meacham, who joined David Beaty’s staff this offseason after working as a co-coordinator at TCU.

If Royals general manager Dayton Moore had taken the podium during the World Series parade of 2015 and announced, “We’re hiring a new manager,” and that was the first Ned Yost had heard of it, it would have come as no less a surprise than what happened in the wake of a successful USA Track and Field Junior Olympics event at Rock Chalk Park.
The competition wasn’t great and the games were completely one-sided, but that did not keep Kansas coach Bill Self from learning something about his basketball team during the Jayhawks’ recently completed eight-day, two-city tour of Italy. By Matt Tait
Dorance Armstrong Jr. is no fan of sitting out. So when the defensive end’s right hamstring sidelined him during many important repetitions the first week of Kansas football’s preseason camp, Armstrong took his typically assertive style and applied it to recovering. By Benton Smith
Andrea Hudy has had a handful of memorable birthdays in her life — most on a beach somewhere, or during her childhood — but none of them were spent in Italy. Until Sunday, that is.
Kansas senior Devonte’ Graham, the pick by many to lead the Jayhawks in scoring during the 2017-18 KU basketball season, did not score his first basket of his team’s 118-74 win at Palasport gymnasium outside of Milan on Sunday night until the midway point of the third quarter. By Matt Tait
Kansas right tackle Charles Baldwin told his position coach Zach Yenser before he got to Lawrence the whole recruiting process — being considered a five-star junior college prospect, signing with powerhouse Alabama, etc. — changed his mindset for the worst. “I got a big head about it,” Baldwin admitted to Yenser. Since then, KU coaches see Baldwin maturing. By Benton Smith
Saving their best for last, the Kansas men’s basketball team, behind 32 points from Malik Newman, steam-rolled Dream Team Italy, 118-74, at Palasport gymnasium outside of Milan on Sunday night. By Matt Tait
As his father was dying, Kansas junior linebacker Keith Loneker Jr. took a break from summer conditioning to be with him. Upon Loneker’s return, head coach David Beaty took him aside.
His Kansas football team isn’t yet deep enough into August practices to have experienced a scrimmage, but head coach David Beaty gave his Jayhawks a taste of gameday-like situations Friday. In full pads for the first time at preseason camp, KU players went live during certain team periods. By Benton Smith
Six practices into Kansas football’s preseason camp, the quarterback competition remains as close as when it began in January, with the arrival of junior transfer Peyton Bender. Head coach David Beaty offered no indications of redshirt sophomore Carter Stanley or Bender taking the lead or out-playing the other at practices this week. Beaty only reveled he has enjoyed watching the pair of quarterbacks vie for the starting job. By Benton Smith
