Oh, how I miss the Kansas Jayahwks already. After an up and down season, which resulted in so many ups, including a Final Four, it is time to look towards next season.

Kansas continues to load up on insane talent for the upcoming season. The five-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 three, 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.

However, Kansas is going to have to replace 4 out of their 5 starters next year which is going to be incredibly tough. The talent is still there but the experience is limited which can be a concern.

Here are my projections for Kansas roster next year:

Starters:

PG: Charlie Moore

G: Quentin Grimes

G: Marcus Garrett

PF: Dedric Lawson

C: Udoka Azibuke

Bench:

PG: Devon Dotson

G/F: Sam Cunliffe

F: KJ Lawson

F: Ochai Agbaji (3 star recruit that just committed, possible red-shirt?)

F: Silvio de Sousa

F: Mitch Lightfoot

C: David McCormack

Now, you can see how talented this team is and will be in the preseason top 3 rankings. The only thing I am concerned with is the lack of experience, but it’s not like the whole team is inexperienced. This team is going to be very good.
