Andrew White transferring from Kansas

One week after seeing Naadir Tharpe leave the program, Kansas is losing another player to transfer.

Sophomore wing Andrew White announced he was heading elsewhere.

“I spoke with my family and the coaches several times throughout the spring and after the season ended, discussing what my expected role would be on the team,” White said in a statement. “Coach [Bill] Self told me it would be questionable to break into the rotation. My family and I decided it would be the best choice to move on and explore other school options. I feel like every day I gave maximum effort and gave everything in my power to the program. I feel I made the best out of my situation.”

The 6-foot-6 White averaged just 6.3 minutes this past season, getting stuck on the bench behind starter Andrew Wiggins and reserve Brannen Greene. Moreover, Self would use Conner Frankamp as a shooter in the backcourt when the Jayhawks needed some perimeter pop.

“We're definitely disappointed about this, but also respect Andrew and the decision he's made,” Self said. “Andrew and I talked periodically throughout the season and at the end of the season we discussed what his role could be potentially moving forward. He had a very good spring and we talked again today. He feels it is in his, and his family's, best interest to pursue some other opportunities.”

White, a Richmond, Va. native, scored exactly 100 points in his Kansas career.
