Kansas freshman Milton Doyle has reportedly made the decision to leave the Jayhawk basketball program before ever playing a game.
Freshman guard Milton Doyle is leaving the Kansas basketball program before ever playing a game, his mother, Lisa Green, told the Kansas City Star late Sunday.
Green did not give a reason for her son's departure, but said that he had informed her of his decision earlier on Sunday.
A 6'4 shooting guard out of Chicago, Doyle was originally committed to Florida International, but re-opened his recruitment after FIU coach Isiah Thomas was fired following last season.
Doyle arrived on campus this summer, and was with the Jayhawks during their recent four-game exhibition tour of Europe. He had four points in 10 minutes in KU's final game in Paris, a 79-60 loss to AMW France. The Jayhawks finished 2-2 during the trip.
Even without Doyle, Kansas still has one of the nation's largest freshmen classes with seven rookies preparing to suit up in 2012-13. The Jayhawks are expected to once again be the preseason favorites in the Big 12.
