Kansas defensive end Dorance Armstrong, with his long-and-strong arms and growing list of accomplishments, casts such a wide shadow it leaves little room for teammates from a 2-10 squad to get much of the spotlight, but Daniel Wise manages. By Tom Keegan
Conner VanCleave isn’t like most athletes packed with baseball potential. For one thing, he stands 6-foot-7. For another, he plays three sports. Also, he’s not easy to label. Is he a pitcher? A first baseman? An outfielder? Yes, yes and yes. Give him a ball and he’ll have a ball playing with it until the classroom bell or dinner bell rings. By Tom Keegan

A McDonald’s All-American from prep powerhouse Oak Hill Academy (Va.), and a top-10 player in the Class of 2017, Billy Preston didn’t stand out much in his first scrimmage at the University of Kansas.

Over the past couple of weeks, with basketball’s offseason allotting him time to return to the University of Kansas campus where he spent four years, former Jayhawks guard Elijah Johnson has seen a lot of KU’s newest backcourt combination. It’s been enough for Johnson to envision senior Devonte’ Graham and sophomore Malik Newman collaborating to form a dynamic perimeter attack, typical of head coach Bill Self’s teams. By Benton Smith
