4-star wing forward Jalen Wilson signs with Kansas

I like our look for 2019/20. Could quite possibly bring some unanswered prayers.

Duke is Duke for now. They hooked Hurt and Stanley. Villanova somehow grabbed Earl. And Precious went with the shiny new object that is Memphis. Many higher ranked players - looking to start - committed in the Fall and/ or early Spring when it sure looked like we would be set with Dotson, Grimes, and Abagi/ Garrett.

Iowa grad transfer Isaiah Moss signs with Kansas

Great news! Moss gets to play a year at a Blue Blood program with a pretty good chance at a national championship. KU replaces the experience and productivity of Grimes/Moore.

If his upward trajectory of continues, this will be a huge get. If it flattens out, we still have a veteran body on the bench providing a breather and extra fouls. Congratulations to all!

KU guard Marcus Garrett still on the mend from high ankle sprain that hindered him last season

Kind of like baseball - catcher, 2nd/SS, and CF.

1, 3, 5. Dotson, Garrett, Dok + the x-factors. Gosh I just want everyone healthy this year to see what happens. They deserve that opportunity.

KU target Jalen Wilson ready for Kansas visit

I'm guessing he was trying to express confidence in himself - and that he's not easily intimidated - and that it just kind of came out (a little) wrong.

Quentin Grimes withdraws from NBA draft pool, plans to transfer from KU

I think there is a bit of snarky "hate" from a few who are probably just as unhappy with themselves as they are with Quentin. I think many, many more are supporting Quentin unconditionally, because he seems like a good kid who is trying to figure out his career.

However, I think nearly all of us are a bit confused, because the situation that makes the most sense FROM THE OUTSIDE would be for him to return to KU for another year. We are surprised, baffled, and curious because we've now been following this kid and his dreams for over a year.

It's not negativity as long as we understand that we all have NO CLUE what else went on - or is going on - in his world these past couple of years. Closure feels good, but we all may have to do without on this one.

Quentin Grimes withdraws from NBA draft pool, plans to transfer from KU

I think he can enter the draft at age 20 regardless of how many years he plays in college.

not really because that was due to a coaching change.

Quentin Grimes withdraws from NBA draft pool, plans to transfer from KU

sorry Glen, I wasn't clear. I was agreeing with you, that if Quentin felt as though, "he only got to show about 50% of what he could do," then he could be right, however it falls short of acknowledging or accepting what the game of basketball is all about.

In a perfect world Kansas would've used him in exactly the capacity that he desired (whatever that was ...). But as we know, $h-t happens. And when it does - whether it's injuries, Dotson or Ochai performing better than expected, Vick being Vick ... or whatever ... then great players circle the wagon, protect each other, and do whatever is asked of them (Josh Jackson, Warriors, etc) for team success.

So I completely understood what you were getting at - that if Quentin inferred that KU held him back, it might be true, but it's not gonna please coaches or win fans. Was trying to enhance your comment, not refute it.

If we get those, or others, we will see 1-2 red-shirts.

How cool is his Dad??? Those comments were smart and classy. Looks like the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.
