Pre-Season

On April 13, 2009 key players Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich announced that they would forgo the NBA draft and return for the 2009–10 season.[1] The Jayhawks will return all players who saw significant minutes on last years Sweet 16 team. In early polls for the season, The Jayhawks are almost the consensus #1 ranked team for the 09–10 season, the only other team that has been #1 in any other polls, is Michigan State, which defeated KU in the Sweet 16 of the 2009 NCAA tournament.

Departures

In the offseason the Jayhawks lost Senior walk-ons Matt Kleinmann and Brennan Bechard from the 2008–09 roster. On April 9, Quintrell Thomas and Tyrone Appleton announced their intention to transfer to other schools due to lack of available playing time.[2] Appleton averaged 0.8 points on 2.2 minutes per game in 2008–09 and Thomas averaged 1.5 points on 5.4 minutes.

Quintrell Thomas announced that he will be joining the UNLV squad, however will not be eligible to play until the 2010–2011 season. Appleton transferred to Southwest Baptist University in Missouri.

Recruiting

In October 2008, the Jayhawks received commitments from a pair of five-star recruits, Elijah Johnson from North Las Vegas and Thomas Robinson of New Hampshire. On Thursday April 23, 2009 McDonald's All-American Xavier Henry of Oklahoma City announced his intention to play at Kansas, prompting ESPN to name the Jayhawks as "the team to beat in 2010." The Jayhawks will add center Jeff Withey, who transferred from the University of Arizona, and C.J. Henry who will transfer from the University of Memphis to join his brother Xavier. C.J. will walk on as his tuition is paid by the New York Yankees who took him in the 2005 MLB Draft. Withey will not be eligible to play until the end of the fall semester.
