Kansas continues to do well with transfers for next season as the Jayhawks landed a commitment from Arizona State transfer Sam Cunliffe on Saturday, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com.
The 6-foot-6 Cunliffe is a former four-star prospect who left the Sun Devils after 10 games into his freshman season to explore new options. Cunliffe averaged 9.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game while shooting 34 percent from the floor and 40 percent from three-point range.
Cunliffe will have to sit out the rest of this season and the first semester of next season but the Jayhawks getting Cunliffe and former Mississippi State transfer Malik Newman should give them some quality reinforcements for next season. Newman can help offset the loss of Frank Mason while Cunliffe can help fill some minutes on the wing if Josh Jackson leaves.
