KU walk-on Elijah Elliott has entered name into transfer portal
Kansas coach Bill Self told the Journal-World on Friday evening that guard Elijah Elliott, a walk-on from Southlake, Texas, has entered the transfer portal.
Self said the 6-foot-3 combo guard who was a redshirt freshman during the 2019-20 season, “hasn’t made a decision (about his future) to my knowledge.”
Elliott joined the Jayhawks as an invited walk-on prior to the 2018-19 season after a strong prep career in Texas.
He suffered an injury midway through his first season and redshirted before returning to action last season.
Elliott appeared in nine games during the Jayhawks’ 28-3 season in 2019-20, making three of four field goal attempts in 22 total minutes.
Elliott was expected to be one of three walk-ons on the Kansas roster during the 2020-21 season, joining senior Chris Teahan and sophomore Michael Jankovich.
