Freshman Doyle leaves Kasnas
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Freshman guard Milton Doyle has left the Kansas basketball program.
Jayhawks coach Bill Self said in a statement Monday that he spoke with Doyle at length over the weekend about his role in the program. Self said that ``the first option was welcoming him back for the fall,'' but that Doyle decided on his own to leave the program.
The 6-foot-4 guard from Chicago was a late addition to the Jayhawks' recruiting class. He was originally committed to Florida International before Isiah Thomas was let go as coach.
Self said Doyle decided to find a program where he had a chance to make an impact early in his career. Kansas returns Elijah Johnson and Travis Releford from last season's national runner-up, and has several high-profile recruits joining the team.
