No. 5 recruit RJ Hampton skips college, agrees to deal in NBL
"I think he’s ready, that’s why we weren’t going back to high school," Hampton said. "It’s never been a dream of his to play college basketball, it’s been a dream of his to use college basketball as a vehicle to get to the NBA. ... He’s playing against grown men. He’s learning how to practice like a pro, and learning how to do everything like a pro and I just think those options outweigh going to college.”

Kansas Jayhawks Football 2019: Best-Case vs. Worst-Case Scenario
Welcome to the Les Miles era Kansas fans. In this scenario, Kansas will exceed expectations that are relatively as low as 10-foot hole in the ground but no matter what, Kansas could have their best season in what feels like forever in this dream season. To kick off the 2019 season, the Jayhawks welcome in the Indiana State Sycamores where the legendary NBA Hall of famer Larry Bird played his college ball. But this is football and no matter how many people would like to just skip over Kansas football, we won’t do that here. I’ll chalk that first game up as a win. Next comes a real nail biter when Coastal Carolina travels to Lawrence but just like the first game, Kansas should not have any true issues here. Maybe the scores are close, but the Jayhawks should start off 2-0 to begin 2019. Then comes by far the toughest test in non-conference play as they take on Boston College on the road. My advice? Go to a Red Sox game instead because Boston College should take care of business there. Now, I could go down game by game but that would be a waste of not only my time, but your time as well.
