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.

Beaty mentioned that he liked how Meacham was using Schadler on the interview he did the first day. (I believe it's the video below)

Also sounded like Schadler was coming off a very serious surgery from last year where his organs were in the wrong places?

Crazy stuff. Glad he's healthy.

I always thought Schadler was too small for RB and a better fit at WR. I'm glad they moved him.

I'd be somewhat surprised if he got meaningful minutes at WR.

He's FAST...but we have like 16? scholarship WRs.

That's definitely possible as there were no spare initial counter scholarships open to give him 1. He'd have had to wait until 2018 to get a scholarship at KU if he was still on the team.

I don't know, I think he showed some good skill with the ball in his hands in 2015 and as you said he's fast. He's really fast. Coach Beaty said he may be the fastest guy on the team and you can't teach speed.

It will come down to how well he can run routes and how good his hands are to determine how successful he will or won't be. I really like his perseverance and hard work ethic. I think that explains how he's already back with the team after such major surgery last year.

His speed gives him a chance at WR. With the additional depth at RB he had no chance there.

Wonder why they don't use him as a kick returner. I remember he went for 6 in the 2015 opener.

Quiv and Schadler as KRs?

Takulve was a return specialist in Louisiana,

Charlot did punts...not sure on kicks.

Dom was a returner at times too.

We'll have some quick/speedy options.

Yeah I think they'll take Quiv off of KR. Let Schadler and Takulve do it. Charlot handle the punt returns.

I think they'll want to keep Quiv fresh for offense. They have options now instead on having to rely on Quiv to make plays with their speed, they have 4-6 guys who they can put back there and make some serious contributions in the return game.

Yep. On the bright side, I've heard he's showed better focus, and he's working out with an improved ethic and urgency now that he's going into his senior year.

I think he was permanently removed from return duties after the Texas game.

Beaty is smart enough to know that using him in 2017 as returner would be putting his job as HC on the line.

One simple thing is not going to put his job on the line. Try and keep up with the overall body of work...
