#Graduate transfer
+Transfer, will sit out AY2017-18, have 2 years to play 2
^Transfer, will sit out AY2017-18, have 3 years to play 3
%Midyear AY2016-17 transfer, will sit out Spring, Summer and Fall 2017, 
  play after Fall semester, will have 3 years to play 2 at KU thru 
  AY2020-21 (would require redshirting one AY which he is still eligible 
  for as AY2016-17 @ASU and AY2017-18 @KU each count as 1 year 
  of eligibility used even though he only played one semester in each). 
Here is a link to the current KUAD Official Roster. It includes links with more info on both the players and also the staff. Should the link take you to last year's roster instead, just select next year's from the Season dropdown menu in the upper right hand corner of the page.

2017-05-26: Astute readers will note that as of this morning the KUAD official roster is missing two walk-ons for AY2017-18, senior G Tucker Vang and freshman G Chris Teahan. For Chris it is almost certainly a matter of not being able to list him until he is enrolled, as TTBOMK he has signed no obligating documents at this point. For Tucker, I am not certain if his absence is merely an oversight or if he will not be playing next year. If anyone knows the answer, please let us know. Thanks!

2017-07-19: William & Mary grad transfer big man Jack Whitman drops KU hoops, leaving an open scholarship for another big for the 2017-18 season.
Whitman leaves KU
Self seeks to fill Whitman scholarship

2017-12-04: Self announces KU tight end James Sosinski will be added to the roster effective with the Sprint Center game against the University of Washington. From Gary Bedore on Twitter: Self said he's been impressed with Sosinski as a kid, says he is bright and has picked up stuff quickly. Said he will be good for Azubuike, thus is expected to be added to team for Wed game. "He's hard for Udoka to score on," Self said.
3:36 PM - 4 Dec 2017


2017-12-22: 2018 recruit Silvio De Sousa graduated a semester early and has been cleared to come to KU and practice effective 26 December while waiting for final NCAA clearance for him to play this season. He will fill the final 2017-18 scholarship left open by Jack Whitman's departure, giving KU 10 scholarship players on the active roster (not red shirting) for this season. link

2018-01-20: Billy Preston left KU to play for a pro team in Bosnia Link
23 Billy Preston 6-10 240 F Fr Los Angeles, CA

Thanks for this, HE. As always, much appreciated. So Newman and Moore have the same symbol (^) next to their name. But Newman will be playing during the '17-'18 school year. No biggie, but just wanted to point out.

I overlooked deleting the caret next to Newman's name when I copied and pasted last year's roster as my start point. Appreciate the chance to clear up any confusion!
