Former UAB receiver headed to Kansas

-

Former University of Alabama-Birmingham wide receiver Quincy Perdue will leave the program and transfer to Kansas. Matt Tait of KU Sports reported Perdue’s decision.

Perdue will have three years of eligibility remaining and should be able to play immediately, given what’s been going on at UAB over the past several months. After discontinuing the football program back in December due to financial issues, the university only recently brought it back following a series of private donations. The Blazers went 6-6 (4-4 C-USA) last season, the team’s first non-losing season since 2004.

Perdue only had two receptions last year, but also managed 82 yards and a touchdown. One of those receptions was for an eye-popping 75 yards. At 6’3″, 210 pounds, he brings much-needed size and experience to a thin Jayhawks receiving corps that could really use a pick-me-up as the David Beaty era is set to begin.

Hopefully, Perdue can be the one to bring KU out of the doldrums and help bring the team its best season since 2008, when then-coach Mark Mangino led the Jayhawks to a 12-1 record and a victory over Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl.

Kansas opens the 2015 campaign on September 5, when the South Dakota State Jackrabbits of the Missouri Valley Football Conference visit Lawrence.
