Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks continue to bolster their backcourt for the 2024-25 season as they’ve now added a commitment from Wisconsin transfer guard AJ Storr, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

According to 247Sports, Storr is the No. 3 transfer of the cycle and the No. 2 shooting guard and is the highest-rated addition for the KU to this point.

 

Listed at 6-foot-7 and playing on the wing, Storr averaged 16.8 points and 3.9 rebounds with the Badgers after transferring in from St. John’s ahead of the 2023-24 season. He was a major reason for Wisconsin’s run to the Big Ten Tournament Championship, as he averaged 22.5 points per game before falling to Illinois in the final.

Storr’s final game with Wisconsin was an upset loss at the hands of James Madison in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, when he was just 5-of-14 for 13 points.

Storr’s addition gives Kansas three new faces at the guard spot, with point guards Zeke Mayo (S. Dakota State.) and Riley Kugel (Florida) already coming aboard this spring.

After the most disappointing season in the Bill Self era, it appears that Kansas is doing everything it can to quickly erase the 2023-24 season from their memories.

With Storr, Mayo, and Kugel coming aboard, KJ Adams and Dejaun Harris coming back, and Hunter Dickinson seemingly leaning toward a return, the Jayhawks’ roster is loaded.
