The Kansas men’s basketball team, year after year, had a seemingly endless supply of big men. That made it easy for the coaching staff to stick with a three-out, two-in offense. This season, though, needed something different.
The Kansas men’s basketball team is likely to be more reliant on William and Mary graduate transfer Jack Whitman, one of four post players eligible next season. Let’s take a closer look at what type of player KU is getting in the 6-foot-9 forward.

Kansas coach Bill Self was named to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2017 on Saturday, but he couldn’t help but feel a void without his Jayhawks here at the Final Four following their loss in the Elite Eight last week.
