It looks like with the first day of Spring practices that KU has updated their roster.a few guys look like they're gone and a couple of new names have popped up.

Here's the 2017 roster.

Looks like Collin Spencer, James Sullivan (walkon transfer from Fort Hays State) and Keagan Brewer are all gone. Really surprised by Brewer's departure as he played quite a bit last year, even though he was a walkon, I wonder what transpired with him.

At a glance, a couple of the names I don't recall seeing before are Caperton Humphrey and Kendall Morris.

Humphrey is a 6'2" 207lbs. Soph. LB transfer from Eastern Kentucky University originally out of Ona, West Virginia.

Morris is a 5'10" 185lbs. Jr. RB transfer from Austin Peay originally out of St. Peters, MO (St. Louis suburb).

I assume both will have to sit out this year, though it looks like Morris has been enrolled at KU for a while already and may not have to sit out for sure. Interested to learn more behind both of their stories and their journey to KU.

The departure of Brewer is somewhat surprising, He was the most productive of the Freshman receivers we had. Harrell did have two TDs, but Brewer seemed to have played a lot more snaps.
Is it possible he thought he had earned a scholarship and there were none available?

Guess I forgot he participated in Senior Day, but he also had 1 more year of eligibility left as he was only a RS Jr. last year.

Dudes on Phog pointed out that Duckworth is gone.

Tyrone Miller switched from #1 to #22.

Maciah Long back to a LB, too.

Any chance the coaches want them on Def? Better to recruit good RB from high school and play other good athletes that transfer in needed position like the secondary.

Chris Hughes moved from DT to OL. All of the DTs are either Sr or Jr and a lot of DEs are Jr. Beaty needs put some focus on DL for the next few recruiting classes.

It was more strange (to me) that he was DT in the first place. He was projected to be an OL coming out of HS.

We need to hit the DT position hard in recruiting this year though.

Believe Duckworth was let go from the team a few months ago and he's no longer a student.

Don't think so, but it does happen from time to time. I just don't think that is the initial plan.

Someone on Phog said Laytrion Jones had an injury and can no longer play football. Has anyone else heard that?

Schadler also now listed as a WR. Will likely be a slot guy. I could see him being used in Jet Sweep, quick screen scenarios. I actually really like his ability in the slot.
