Darious Crawley announces departure from Kansas


The Kansas Jayhawks haven’t had much luck on the gridiron for a good while and things don’t seem to be too bright going into the future. The outlook got a little bit darker when they lost wide receiver Darious Crawley.

Crawley took to Twitter this weekend to announce that he would be leaving the school and has since deleted the tweet. However, Matt Tait of the Lawrence Journal-World wrote and seemed to confirm that he would not be on the team going forward.

“Crawley still appears on the KU roster, but he’s back home in Houston and will not return,” Tait wrote.

Darious Crawley was a three-star member of the Jayhawks’ 2014 class and played 15 games over the last two years. He recorded 244 yards and caught two of the teams 12 touchdowns during the 2015 season.

It is not clear if he is going to transfer or just doesn’t want to play football into the future.

If it is the latter and he stays at the FBS level, he would have to sit out the 2016 season and would have two years of eligibility left starting next year.
