White pondering choices: Former KU and Nebraska guard Andrew White III has not yet picked his transfer destination. He has visited both Syracuse and Michigan State and is said to be considering Texas and VCU, maybe others.

“He’s a really good three-point shooter. He’s obviously big at 6-7, so that’s a match-up problem. He’s mentally tough and aggressive. He’ll get in there and rebound. He’s not a softie,” Bleacher Report’s Jason King told “I think they worried a little bit about his quickness and lateral movement at Kansas. Bill (Self) is a big-time defense guy.’’

King added: “From all indications, he’s a real top-notch dude. He’s a good ambassador. He’s going to do well academically. He’s not going to divide a locker room. He was really well-liked. For that reason, I was a little surprised about him leaving Nebraska.

“At the end of the day, he has one year of college left and he probably wants to play in the NCAA tournament and that wasn’t going to happen at Nebraska.’’

So.....I'm just going to say it.....or ask it.....would we have been better with AW than with WS?

Although I'm not sure if we saw Wayne's full potential, outside of maybe in Korea where he looked amazing, I'm not sure if we'd have terribly different results with Andrew. That being said I would have loved to have both and think we would have done better if we did have both. But I will say Andrew was probably the better shooter and Wayne didn't drive as much as I would have liked, so if I had to say one or the other I'd give the slightest of edge to AW3... But that could also be because I saw every Selden game last season, so I saw his slumps and I didn't really see any AW3 games to see any when/if he struggled. I just looked at both of their last season's stats and out side of Wayne having more assists and AW had the slightly better PPG and FG%, both were basically identical.

I'd have loved if Andrew decided to come back to KU (I assume one can transfer back to a school they left before?), but even though he's proven that he's starter material I don't think he'd start over Mason, Devonte, Jackson, or Bragg. So I knew this likely wouldn't of happened (although bump Bragg to center and put JJ or AW at the 4 could be a great lineup)... But I could have swore I read some articles not too long ago that he already chose Syracuse?

Definitely not better than Wayne. Might have worked out better than 1 year of Oubre and 1 year(ish, but really with playing time) for BG. Just that consistency thing.
