His return answers the biggest remaining question for the Jayhawks roster next year.

Sunday afternoon, Devonte’ Graham took to Twitter to announce his plans for next year:

Graham was one of three underclassmen whose status is still unknown, with Carlton Bragg announcing recently that he would be transferring last week. Josh Jackson still has not officially declared for the draft, so there is a tiny chance that he might be back, and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk has yet to officially declare his intentions.

This is huge news for the Jayhawks, as losing Graham would mean this team was effectively going without any experience at the point next year. Instead, Graham will get the opportunity to be the undisputed leader of the team next year, following in the footsteps of Frank Mason.

We will have plenty of more discussion on how this will effect the team, especially once the full lineup is known. For now, feel free to go wild in the comments.
