Kansas Freshman Milton Doyle to Leave the Program
The Kansas City Star reported on Sunday evening that incoming Kansas freshman Milton Doyle was leaving the program.
His mother, Lisa Green, told reporters of the news.
Back in late July, the NCAA made the decision to clear Doyle, pending an earlier investigation into his high school credits.
Despite the news and the report, Doyle’s decision to leave the KU program remains unclear.
At 6-foot-4, Doyle hails from Chicago, Illinois, and was a one-time Florida International-commit. Following FIU’s decision to fire Isaiah Thomas this past spring, Doyle re-opened his recruitment, eventually landing at Kansas.
Doyle had been enrolled at KU this summer and actually accompanied the team on their exhibition tour in France.
During his recruitment in high school, Doyle had received interest from a number of mid-to-high level programs, signing aid paperwork with the Jayhawks in June.
Kansas head coach Bill Self still has a number of newcomers that will impact the program this season, including eligible freshman Ben McLemore, who continues to receive high praise in anticipation of his play.
It also remains unclear what Doyle will do from here on out, but according to the report, Green informed the Kansas City Star that she had heard the news from her son on Sunday.
The Jayhawks are fresh off a national championship game loss to Kentucky this past season.
