+ Current year transfer, sitting out this season
# Graduate transfer
$Status questionable at update.
Here is a link to the AY2018-19 KUAD Official Roster. It includes links with more info on both the players and also the staff. NB: You can select prior season rosters from the Season dropdown menu in the upper right hand corner of the KUAD page.

Prior year RCB version of the roster can be found here.

2018-04-25: Astute readers will note that for now I do not have KUFB tight end walk-on James Sosinski (6-7/250 redshirt junior forward from Chandler, AZ) on the roster. It is entirely possible that he will return for next season, but to date I have not heard anything on him doing so, and hopefully KU will not require his presence for another season. With all that, I'd love to see him back for more Red Team experience in practice. I still recall Self saying that James really made Dok work hard in practice.

You will also note that I am listing Silvio De Sousa for now, even with the cloud over his status from the FBI fraud indictment targeting an adidas executive and some of his associates. I am maintaining the stance that Silvio is on the roster until we learn otherwise.

2018-06-30: Updated roster for announcement of the return of Lagerald Vick for his senior season.

2018-07-06: Updated roster for announcement of Lagerald Vick wearing #24 for his senior season.

2018-07-23: Updated roster for announcement of Sam Cunliffe transferring (he eventually opted for Xavier).

2018-11-05: Updated roster for announcement of Ochai Agbaji redshirting for this season.

Rock Chalk!

As noted earlier today, new C David McCormack is arriving in Lawrence today. He says he will be wearing #33, so I have updated the AY2018-19 roster to reflect that.

I have not seen anything on when the other newbies will be showing up. Walk-on PG Garrett Luinstra lives in Lawrence, and SG Ochai Agbaji lives in KC, but SG Quentin Grimes lives near Houston, PG Devon Dotson lives in Charlotte NC and walk-on SG EJ Elliott hails from Dallas. We can expect to be hearing news of their arriving in Lawrence in the next few days since the first day of classes for the summer session begins Tuesday, June 5.

From the roster...
Who haven't we heard from yet"
Quentin Grimes	     6-5  180	G   Fr	  The Woodlands, TX
Devon Dotson	     6-1  180	G   Fr	  Charlotte, NC
Ochai Agbaji	     6-5  200	G   Fr	  Kansas City, MO
Garrett Luinstra*    6-1  150	G   Fr	  Lawrence, KS 
EJ Elliott*          6-3  185	G   Fr    Dallas, TX

Here is the LJW story on it.

Charlie Moore has Vick’s old #2 now, and won’t be giving it up (part of the return terms from Self), so wondering what LV will chose?

4= 2 squared and is available with Devonté graduating. Feels nice.

12 ( Chris Teahan) and 22 (Silvio De Sousa) are taken.

15 has been worn by some hallowed Jayhawks, and also happens to represent the first target for this year’s team - win its 15th straight Big 12 title.

32 is available, as is 42.

42... hmmm... the answer to the question of life, the universe and everything.

Yeah, I think I like that. Very symbolic for our sole senior in search for the answers to his own personal questions.

I like #15 for him assuming he works out as well as we hope.

So long, and thanks for all the fish, :P

... but with donning #24 for his senior season, Lagerald Vick joins these past Jayhawks (a small sample from the pool of former 24s), and hopefully he can help his team be as successful as they each did in their own ways...

Sasha Kaun
Chris Piper
Alonzo Jamison
Travis Releford
Kelly Knight

Hope you wear it well, LV!

Matt Tait: "Updated state of the KU basketball roster entering the final break of summer vacation"

Good stuff from Matt, including the results of his readers' poll re: who should start next year and a look at how things might work out for each player on the 2018-19 Jayhawks (e.g., he thinks Mitch would most likely be the only redshirt next year).

FWIW, his fan "survey says":
PG – Charlie Moore (45%) — Devon Dotson (37%)
SG – Quentin Grimes (87%) — Devon Dotson (7%)
SF – Lagerald Vick (62%) — Quentin Grimes (18%)
PF – Dedric Lawson (81%) — Silvio De Sousa (13%)
C – Udoka Azubuike (94%) — 3 tied at 2%
(Matt's starting five: Dotson, Grimes, Garrett, D. Lawson, Azubuike.)

What's your thoughts on who the starters will be?

For me, I think Moore will start the season at PG, but my season's end starting 5 (barring injury, of course) is the same as Matt's. I also think that Silvio is going to get significant PT next year. I really, really like what he brings to the table for KU.

And I must say although I would understand it if Mitch did, I hope no one redshirts next year. I think Bill could keep everyone happy, and I so love the depth... and Mitch is just so much Mr. Jayhawk.

Enjoy!
