The Kansas basketball program was one of a few teams that did not lose a player to the transfer portal this offseason. With Johnny Furphy expected to stay in the NBA Draft and Labaron Philon decommitting, the roster looks a tad different than it did a couple of weeks ago. While the Jayhawks might bring in another transfer in the near future, it probably won't be someone noteworthy enough to alter the current depth chart

Here is the projected Kansas basketball depth chart after the 2024 transfer portal cycle closed.

Point Guard

1. Dajuan Harris
2. Elmarko Jackson
3. Zeke Mayo
4. Jamari McDowell

Harris is entering his final season at Kansas and will undoubtedly start at point guard. However, his role could be slightly reduced with more scoring options in the backcourt. He will continue to do what he does best — facilitating and creating shots for his teammates.

Meanwhile, Jackson was a transfer candidate but wound up staying in Lawrence for another season. The former McDonald’s All-American should significantly improve from his freshman year as he learns behind Harris, though opportunities could be difficult to come by if he struggles. on the offensive end.

As for Mayo, he is not a typical point guard but is a solid playmaker and could see some minutes as the primary ball handler. McDowell should see similar playing time to last season in short spurts if the team needs defensive energy. He will have a much shorter leash than Jackson.
