KANSAS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jake Heaps expects to start at QB for the Hurricanes

Quarterback Jake Heaps hopes the third time is the charm. Heaps is on his third team in four years. After unsuccessful stints with the BYU Cougars and the Kansas Jayhawks, Heaps has one year of eligibility left to make his mark with the Miami Hurricanes. And Heaps plans to make the most of it as the team’s starting quarterback. “I didn’t come here to be the backup,” Heaps...

Former Jayhawks QB Jake Heaps excited about opportunity with Hurricanes

At 23 years old, Jake Heaps is married. He has 33 collegiate games with two programs to his name. So why has he spent the past month living in the University of Miami's dorms after transferring? When redshirt senior Ryan Williams tore his ACL in the spring, it left the Hurricanes with no experience at the quarterback position. Not the ideal situation for a team hoping to capture...

Ex-Kansas point guard Naadir Tharpe to turn pro instead of transfer

The final image of Naadir Tharpe's up-and-down college career apparently will be him dejectedly walking off the floor following a nightmarish performance in Kansas' stunning NCAA tournament loss to Stanford this past March. Tharpe told CBSSports.com on Wednesday he will forgo his final year of college eligibility and begin his professional career either in the D-League or...

Andrew Wiggins has the best jacket at the NBA Draft

Is it possible that Andrew Wiggins may have already won before being selected in the NBA Draft Thursday? I think so. The former Kansas Jayhawks star will be wearing this gorgeous outfit at the draft and I just love it. Look at those colors. Look at that floral pattern. He’s got a full smoking jacket […]

Joel Embiid Credits Bill Self With Putting Him In Position “To Realize His Dreams” In Instagram Post

Most basketball fans could safely assume that Andrew Wiggins would be a one-and-done player for Kansas after all of the hype that was heaped on him as a high school player. Joel Embiid wasn’t expected to have the same instant impact, but if not for an unfortunate string of injuries, he may very well be going ahead of Wiggins in tonight’s NBA Draft. Embiid seems incredibly grateful...

Who is Andrew Wiggins and why he may/may not by the No. 1 pick

A look at Andrew Wiggins, one of the two strongest candidates to be the No. 1 overall pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft... Why he might be No. 1: Wiggins isn't just a great athlete - he has a chance to instantly be one of the top athletes in the NBA. He has a 7-foot wingspan, (at least) a 40-inch vertical and his highlight reel is full of breathtaking dunks and explosive...

Will Joel Embiid's latest injury be enough to trump his endless potential on draft night?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Joel Embiid didn't even want to be here. Not really. That's the part about Thursday's little knife-twist that breaks your heart. You can't shake the feeling that this whole "NBA Draft" thing was everybody's idea but his. You can't shake the feeling that if Big No. 21 had his druthers, he'd still be in Lawrence, dunking on...
