LAWRENCE (KSNT) – KU forward Jalen Wilson announced Friday he’s returning to KU for his redshirt-sophomore season.

“I first want to thank all those who have helped and supported me through the NBA Draft process,” Wilson said. “I received great feedback from the teams and know what I need to work on to improve. With that, I will be returning to Kansas for my sophomore season and plan on being back on campus soon. I look forward to rejoining my teammates, meeting the newcomers and getting back to work.”
