This coming fall at Memorial Stadium, either Peyton Bender or Carter Stanley will enjoy throwing to far more potential play-makers than their post-Reesing KU quarterback predecessors. Sims and Gonzalez are back, of course, but the Jayhawks also welcome Alabama transfer Daylon Charlot to the field. Those three alone would make KU’s receiving corps more formidable than the units of the past seven seasons. But when you consider the quality of the overall depth of the unit, there is even more reason to be optimistic.
Chandler, a 6-foot-8, 200-pound sophomore power forward from Memphis (Tenn.) East High School, is ranked No. 20 in the recruiting Class of 2019 by ESPN.com and No. 34 by Rivals.com. He’s also been offered scholarships from Florida, Georgia Tech and Memphis, ESPN.com reports.
According to The Idaho Statesman, Cozart will be one of four quarterbacks competing at Boise State, and two of them are freshmen.
Kansas women's basketball head coach Brandon Schneider added two more junior college transfers to the Jayhawks' roster for the 2017-18 season.
The Kansas men's and women's track & field teams will journey to the Little Apple this weekend as they take part in the Ward Haylett Invitational in Manhattan, Kansas. The one-day meet, which is slated to begin at 11 a.m., on Saturday, May 6, will be the Jayhawks' last chance to prepare for the Big 12 Championship meet next week in Lawrence.
The Jayhawks (23-22) and Tigers (16-27) have only met twice in the history of the two programs with KU holding the advantage, 2-0.
