Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks landed one of the top players in the transfer portal this offseason in former Wisconsin guard AJ Storr.

Storr revealed to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein on Sunday that he would be withdrawing his name from the 2024 NBA Draft and will play for Kansas in 2024-25.

 

The 6-foot-7 guard from Rockford, Illinois, became a household name last season at Wisconsin, averaging 16.8 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in his second season of collegiate basketball. In addition to his impressive scoring numbers, Storr connected on 43.4% of his shots from the field and 32% from three.

Coming out of IMG Academy in the Class of 20200, Storr was listed as a four-star prospect by the 247Sports index and the nation’s 97th-ranked player. He also checked in as the 10th-ranked player at his position and the 15th-ranked player in the state of Florida.

Storr is one of Kansas’ four additions through the transfer portal this offseason, joining Alabama’s Rylan Griffen, Rice’s Noah Shelby, and South Dakota State’s Zeke Mayo.

With a revamped transfer class that currently checks in as the nation’s sixth-ranked group, Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks should have a shot at entering the season as the preseason favorite to win a National Championship in 2024-25.
