It looks like Kansas’ receiving unit is getting some much-needed help. KUSports.com has reported that former UAB receiver Quincy Perdue is transferring to Kansas.
It’s good news for a team that could use some. Several areas on Kansas depth chart could use some help, but none more than the receiving corps. It’s been decimated this offseason. Since the Jayhawks last took the field in 2014 their top six returning receivers have either graduated, left for the NFL draft, or been suspended. Including the news on Tuesday that previously suspended receiver Rodriguez Coleman has been dismissed from the program.
Perdue comes to the Jayhawks from UAB, and will be immediately eligible to play in the fall. The NCAA granted former UAB players the right to freely transfer to any school to continue their football career after the university temporarily shut down their football program for six months.
A member of the Blazers’ 2014 recruiting class, Perdue was a two-star recruit out of Marietta, GA. As a freshman he received limited playing time appearing in six games. His most memorable moment came in week two with a 75-yard touchdown catch against SEC member Mississippi State. With three years of eligibility remaining, he’s a welcomed addition to the Jayhawks.
