it’s so hard to say when you’re restarting your roster every year.  i will say that ku is absolutely stacked, but also lots of new guys.

Coleman Hawkins appears to be good at the internet. I want him now!  :shy:

Everybody everywhere are staying put. The transfer portal is closed.

So are we not getting Coleman Hawkins since he left without committing?

I think they will ultimately get a deal done, I think there are only a handful of teams left with a scholarship and the money needed to get him.  LSU is trying to get one of their incoming freshman to walk on I think to make room for Coleman but it seems like a long shot.

One thing I hadn't considered is how will scholarship caps work when there are nil deals worth more than scholarships? Why couldn't LSU just pay Coleman the nil value plus the cost of tuition?

There is still a rule that you can't go from scholarship to walk on without sitting a year. Our QB Knuth had to do that coming from Minnesota.

but in theory you could have all incoming freshmen be walk ons with NIL deals?

Funny story I heard about his visit. He wouldn't stop talking to the staff about how much he liked football. Like, he was legitimately taking into account how good the school's fb program/game day experience was when making his decision, and now we just beat out LSU.  :gocho:

I thought he said ahead of his visit that that number was a rumor social media ran with and that he expected to take less?

Yeah, he said himself the $2 million was a rumor.
Hawkers first said we were poor, now saying we overpaid...typical.

CBS Sports and Jeff Goodman said we really did pay north of 2 mil.  :eek: Norlander from CBS said: "K-State boasts one of the largest NIL war chests of any program in college basketball." Damn.
