Kansas continues to load up on insane talent for the upcoming season. The 5 star, 16th rated recruit in the country, Quentin Grimes, has officially committed to the University of Kansas.

This current Kansas team has a chance to be really good, but, the upcoming season has a chance to be an all time great team for Kansas (on paper at least).

Grimes is versatile, he’s tall for his position, he has good ball handling skills, he can shoot and shoot the 3, he’s lengthy which helps make his a good rebounder and defender, and he can drive to the basket. Grimes is a do it all player, and a player that can absolutely thrive in a Kansas uniform.

Now, the team next year is insanely deep that I don’t even know what Bill Self is going to do.

Here are my projections for Kansas roster next year:


G: Devon Dotson

SG: Malik Newman

SF: Quentin Grimes

PF: Dedric Lawson

C: David McCormack


PG: Charlie Moore

G: Marcus Garrett

G/F: Sam Cunliffe

F: KJ Lawson

F: Silvio de Sousa

F: Mitch Lightfoot

G/F: Ochai Agbaji

Now, Kansas obviously loses Devonte Graham and Svi Mykhailiuk due to graduating.

I’m assuming that both Lagerald Vick and Udoka Azibuke declare for the draft.

I’m also assuming that Malik Newman is going to take the Devonte Graham approach and come back for his junior season, knowing that it is now his team to be the captain of.

You can see the depth of this team and how good they can be.

Rock Chalk Jayhawks!
