KU baseball SP Jackson Goddard was selected in the third round of the MLB Draft, #99 overall, by the Arizona Diamondbacks. He is the third highest draft pick in KU baseball history.

Dedric Lawson looks like he could be a Big 12 POY candidate next season, but don’t let that distract you from the fact that Mitch Lightfoot hit six three-pointers en route to 22 points in KU’s last scrimmage.

Lawson says the Jayhawks will have the best frontcourt in the nation next season.

Kansas checks in at #1 (again) in CBSSports’ Top 25-and-1; the Jayhawks also claim the #1 overall seed in Jerry Palm’s first 2019 NCAA Bracket.

247Sports takes a look at how future Jayhawk Quentin Grimes performed at Team USA camp, as well as recruiting targets Matthew Hurt, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Jaden McDaniels, and Kira Lewis.

VMI transfer LB Brian Lipscomb made his way to KU after talking with his cousin, Brandon McAnderson.
