Quentin Grimes has withdrawn from the NBA Draft and will enter the transfer portal Kansas head coach Bill Self announced on Wednesday night.

“We’ve all enjoyed coaching Quentin this past year and certainly appreciate his efforts,” Self said. “We initially anticipated him staying in the draft but he and his family decided to return to college but not return to the University of Kansas. We totally support and respect Quentin and his decision and wish him the very best moving forward. We believe Quentin will have a long professional basketball career and look forward to watching his development.”

In his freshman season with the Jayhawks, Grimes averaged 8.4 points per game and 2.5 rebounds.
