Breaking News: Alabama Confirm To Lose Another Top Experienced Star To Kansas City

Rylan Griffen, an Alabama transfer, pledges to Kansas
One of the portal’s top shooters has chosen to join the Jayhawks. Rylan Griffen, a former guard for Alabama, declared his commitment to Kansas on Friday on X, a social media site that was once known as Twitter. Griffen stated, “I chose Kansas because coach (Bill) Self and the coaching staff are going to push me to be the best player I can be,” as reported by ESPN.

“They mentioned that they needed to shoot, so I guess I fit in. In that regard, I believe I can assist them. I believe I can help them maintain their winning mentality while also helping them with perimeter defense and getting stops.”

Griffen played a key role in guiding Alabama to the Final Four, where they were defeated by eventual champion UConn in the national quarterfinal. Griffin averaged 8.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game in 73 games (33 starts, all as a sophomore) during his two years with the Crimson Tide.
His lifetime 3-point percentage is 35.4%; in his sophomore year, he shot 39.2% from beyond the arc. When the transfer class of Wisconsin’s AJ Storr, South Dakota State’s Zeke Mayo, and Florida’s Riley Kugel join the Kansas Jayhawks next season, the Dallas native will be a junior.
