As predicted. Family has a track record of seeking/joining teams projected to be good, going back to hs. Easy way to get national exposure, hardware, and bio. A walkon request got the sister on the ou's basketball team a few years ago that was projected to be highly ranked for upcoming seasons. Ended up getting her hardware and cool bio for having been (as benchwarmer) at two final four appearances. Not bad..
For 2017, he was essentially demoted to fourth string. Bender and Stanley are firmly in front per Beaty comments. Willis was tied, at best, with Cozart based on last year's playing time.
Can't blame him for leaving. If I recall, he committed under Weis when Cozart looked terrible, Darling was underwhelming, Stanley, Bender, and Starks weren't on the depth chart. I can understand that he wants a fresh start and a new chance to compete, but it would be odd that he chose KU with expectations of trophies.
Hail to thee our Alma Mater, hail to old KU!
