KU’s Weis left in the dark on offensive lineman Slater’s return

Offensive lineman Pearce Slater was one of Kansas’ biggest junior college recruiting coups this past offseason. Slater committed to Kansas in early July, and after playing his redshirt freshman season at El Camino (Calif.) Community College in 2012, the KU coaching staff discovered he would have three years of eligibility remaining. But on Friday morning, coach Charlie Weis said he was unsure “if and when” Slater would return to the Kansas program after he left campus last Saturday.
