KU football players Kelan Robinson, Grant Glasgow announce plans to enter transfer portal

Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels is jubilant during the Spring preview at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium on Friday, April 7, 2023.

Two more members of the Kansas football team on Wednesday announced their plans to enter the transfer portal when the window opens this weekend.

Wide receiver Kelan Robinson, a redshirt sophomore from Grand Prairie, Texas, and walk-on place kicker Grant Glasgow, a freshman from Lawrence High, both shared their plans on social media.

Robinson, who caught a touchdown during the recent Spring Showcase event that wrapped up the Jayhawks’ spring practices, said in his announcement that he used his time at KU to learn how to grow on and off the field.

“That you to the Jayhawks family and teammates for all of the support and love through the two years spent there,” he wrote. “It was a blessing to wear crimson and blue and earn the right to call myself a Jayhawk.”

Robinson leaves Kansas having played in 11 games over two seasons — 10 in 2022 and the finale in 2021 — and without a catch. He will have three years of eligibility remaining at his next stop.

Glasgow, who was a standout soccer player and place kicker at Lawrence High School before deciding to continue his career at Kansas, noted in his social media announcement that his decision to enter the portal came after “many prayers and conversations with my family.”

Glasgow will have four years of eligibility remaining at his next stop.

Jalon Daniels on top-10 list

Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels, who enjoyed a breakout season in 2022, has landed in the top 10 of an ESPN list designed to identify the top quarterbacks in the country heading into the 2023 season.

ESPN’s Dave Wilson wrote that Daniels, who landed at No. 10 on the list, has developed into one of the top quarterbacks in the country, both in terms of his talent and his production.

“It’s been a remarkable rise for Daniels, a late bloomer who was an unheralded recruit before earning Heisman hype last season while leading the Jayhawks to a 5-0 start after throwing 11 TDs to 1 INT over that span,” Wilson wrote.

Listed ahead of Daniels on the list are: USC’s Caleb Williams, Oregon’s Bo Nix, North Carolina’s Drake Maye, Washington’s Michael Penix Jr. and LSU’s Jayden Daniels. KU’s Daniels is the only Big 12 QB in the top 10. The only other Big 12 quarterback even mentioned is Oklahoma’s Dillion Gabriel, who received one vote.

That fact, and the new faces that will man the position in the conference next season, certainly add some support to the claim that Jalon Daniels could be the top quarterback in Big 12 country entering the 2023 season, perhaps even entering into earning preseason all-Big 12 honors.
