Texas Tech point guard Mylik Wilson announced that he would enter the tansfer portal and as stated before, the roster will continue to change until it doesn’t. With Wilson transferring, this means that your likely starting guards, unless it is freshmen, will be D’Maurian Williams and De’Vion Harmon with Jaylon Tyson, Kevin Obanor, and Fardaws Aimaq likely rounding out the top 5, but we are a long ways away from finalizing this. I also forgot to adjust some of the scholarship numbers when Harmon committed, but think I have things fixed now.
Additionally, with Kevin McCullar announcing that he was still working towards the NBA and either down to Gonzaga or Kansas, head coach Mark Adams had something to say on Twitter.
We should all wish @Kevin_McCullar the best on his decision to remain in the NBA Draft. These are difficult decisions for our student-athletes and he deserves our respect. This was a mutual decision that I believe will work out as he pursues his dream of playing in the NBA.

I think that when Adams says that it was a mutual decision, that he was being pretty honest there. I think I mentioned that I think that what McCullar wanted, which is to be a lead guard that takes a bunch of shots in order to improve his stock and play in the NBA was not something that Adams was willing to offer up. That doesn’t make McCullar a bad guy for wanting that, but I can understand how you might be disappointed if he played for Kansas.
I’d also think that Remy Martin transferred from Arizona State for his senior year and thought he’d really make a name for himself at Kansas. He was injured, but he also wasn’t really used and averaged less than 10 points a game for Kansas, but had averaged 20 points a game for the Sun Devils for 2 years prior to his arrival in Lawrence. Maybe McCullar will get exactly what he wants, but I think that will be tough to find in Lawrence. I’m probably wrong, but Self loves players who shoot well from the outside. If McCullar becomes that shooter, then he fits like a glove.
Also, Marcus Santos-Silva signed a free agent deal with the Cleveland Browns. Congrats to MSS!
One more aside, the internet went out at my house this morning so I’m stealing a bit of internet from work. I had this all written up last night, so it’s a bit late this morning. Thank you all for the incredible cups of coffee. Your appreciation for what I try to do here is received.
