Kansas Jayhawks forward Gethro Muscadin submitted his name for the transfer portal on Wednesday, per a report from 247Sports.com.
The product of Aspire Basketball Academy in Louisville, Kentucky, is the third Jayhawks player to submit their name to the transfer portal since the Jayhawks lost to USC in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Muscadin was little-used last season by head coach Bill Self. The freshman played in just 10 games. He was a Top 200 player in the 2020 recruiting class.
His decision follows that of Tristan Enaruna, who submitted his name to the transfer portal on Tuesday. He announced his decision on Twitter, and it was retweeted by the official KU basketball Twitter account.
Enaruna’s decision was a bit more jarring for the Jayhawks. He played in 25 games last season, playing nearly 10 minutes per game. He only averaged 2.8 points and 1.6 rebounds, but he was likely in line for a bigger role next season.
Last week, forward Tyon Grant-Foster submitted his name to the transfer portal.
These decisions do free up some scholarships for Self and his staff. He admitted after the team’s loss to USC they need longer, quicker personnel to get back to being competitive nationally. This would allow him to pursue some new recruits and transfers, and Kansas is in the running for one of the hottest names on the transfer market, UMKC’s Brandon McKissic.
