David Padgett has opted to leave Kansas and
is considering UNC among his possible schools. This is a potential
dilemma for Roy Williams, because it will drive his old fans completely bonkers,
and alienate a lot of people who may not be alienated currently. On the other
hand, Padgett is legit, and he'd be nuts not to take a big man, give him
essentially a redshirt season, and really work on him. Plus, he's Roy's
kind of player, unlike some of the kids at UNC now, and he'd be an immense help
in Sean May's development. Tough call for Ol' Roy.
He's the third player to leave Kansas after the season, after Omar Wilkes and
Moulaye Niang also departed.
