NBC Sports has Devonte as first team All-American



  • Devonte only Jayhawk on the list, while Keegan speculates that Malik will be Big 12 player of the year.

  • Sounds about right. Graham and Newman are likely to be the stars on this team.



  • Well, I certainly hope he is! However, while I think he will put up good stats this upcoming season, I am hesitant to label him a 1st team AA. Prove me wrong, Devonte!!!



  • Malik is not getting much love nationally; hopefully it places a gigantic chip on his shoulder and goes on to have a monster season along with Devonte and the rest of the team.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Malik was the highest rated guy on the team when he started college. He is going to be a huge points manufacturer. He was stunk in a horrible offense at MSU and had to essentially create his own shot every possession. Look for him to surprise everyone except us. I expect him to blow my mind every game. He has swagger and is a prototypical KU combo guard. Oh man I have been waiting so long to see Malik in a KU uni. This is going to be badass



  • @JayHawkFanToo Newman is a case of outta sight, outta mind.



  • The less pressure on Newman, the better. I want him playing with a free mind.



  • Udoka is gonna be a Monster. He will absolutely get national attention.



  • @Lulufulu I agree. He is going to be a problem for every team we face. Inside outside balance should be good next year - thats what made last year’s Gonzaga and Unc teams tough. Teams couldnt take away an area because it would present huge problems elsewhere.



  • Congrats, Devonte!
