BREAKING: Cobee Bryant Makes it Official 🚨

KU’s star DB Cobee Bryant will return to Kansas next season. He made it official with a YouTube video to share the news. Bryant gave an exclusive statement to KUHearings subscribers after we’ve helped grow his YouTube channel to 4,000 subscribers.

ROCKCHALK! I love y’all,” Brant said. “I hope you support and tune in. This is world breaking news.”

Bryant’s announcement matters in the transfer portal era. After the regular season, there were rumors of SEC schools seeing if Bryant would leave KU and transfer. Kansas held its ground,* and we all have reason for optimism because of it.

The Jayhawks’ secondary was a large part of their nine-win season. Both Bryant and his counterpart, Mello Dotson, had four interceptions this year. They’re both returning for the Jayhawks, and RB Devin Neal is reported to return as well.

And they’ll be in the conversation as Big 12 contenders if the offseason goes according to plan…

Also, happy to say I went 4/4 with my VIP predictions from December 6 👏✅

Jayhawks Lose Starting OL to Portal 👎

Still, KU hasn’t kept everyone this offseason.

The Jayhawks lost starting OL Armaj Reed-Adams after he declared the transfer portal on Sunday. Reed-Adams is a veteran presence KU will miss next year. He played 605 snaps this season, largely filling the gap for the injured Bryce Cabeldue.

While losing Reed-Adams hurts, it shouldn’t be devastating for KU. The OL graded out as one of KU’s lowest-rated linemen this season, according to Pro Football Focus.

Still, it won’t help the Jayhawks’ depth especially as they’ll now have to replace three total starting offensive linemen with Dominick Puni and Mike Novitsky graduating.

As always, I’ll keep you posted on any other transfer action as it happens.

  • KU hoops commit Rakease Passmore went 5-for-6 from three in a Chick-Fil-A classic game. You can watch the highlights here. ESPN’s Paul Biancardi gave him a lot of love after the game.

  • Here are two more crazy Bill Self and Kansas basketball stats: Number 1, Number 2.

  • Christian Braun told Bill Self he hasn’t seen anyone play harder than KJ Adams after he sat courtside for the KU-Wichita State game.
