The portal welcomed another college basketball transfer, this time a guard leaving Kansas for other opportunities.
Bryce Thompson played one season under Bill Self but will now transfer to a new destination for his sophomore season and beyond. A five-star recruit and former McDonald’s All-American from the Class of 2020, the 6-foot-5 Thompson battled injuries throughout his freshman season in Lawrence, and played in only 20 of the Jayhawks’ 30 games in 2020-21. He averaged 4.6 points and started four times. You might even recognize him from his three fouls in nine minutes in the Kentucky game.
Now Thompson is on the move and could draw lots of interest around the country, as he did coming out of high school as a top-20 prospect. However, a Kansas beat writer believes Thompson’s new destination is already decided and it’s his hometown school, Tulsa, so this may be a quick process. Otherwise he’d likely be on Kentucky’s call list.
