Who is the well-dressed, tall young man who bears a vague facial resemblance to Kobe Bryant and sits at the end of KU’s bench during home games? Is he a graduate assistant coach?

No. The young man you are referring to probably is Justin Wesley, a 6-foot-8, walk-on transfer from Lamar University. Wesley averaged 1.2 points and 1.3 rebounds in 23 games for Lamar last season. Per NCAA rules, he must sit out the season as a red-shirt. Wesley is related to a former KU star basketball player, but it’s not Walt Wesley. He is the brother of Keith Langford, who is playing professionally in Russia.
