Former KU guard Latrell Jossell transferring to SFA

Kansas guard Latrell Jossell (4) gets through Omaha guard Grant Frickenstein (15) and Omaha guard Kyle Luedtke (3) for a bucket during the second half on Friday, Dec. 11, 2020 at Allen Fieldhouse.

One of five Kansas players to enter the transfer portal in recent weeks, former KU guard Latrell Jossell found himself a new college basketball home at Stephen F. Austin.

Jossell, a freshman reserve who played sparingly for the Jayhawks this past season, announced his commitment on his social media accounts Friday afternoon.

Listed at 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds on KU’s roster as a true freshman, the former three-star prospect only appeared in 10 games for the Jayhawks, averaging 2.7 minutes played in those outings.

KU coach Bill Self said earlier in April when Jossell announced his plans to leave the program that the young guard was searching for more playing time elsewhere.

“Latrell is very popular with our staff and teammates and we all wish him the best at his next stop,” Self said at the time. “He’ll do great.”

Reserve big Gethro Muscadin, backup wing Tyon Grant-Foster and rotation players Tristan Enaruna and Bryce Thompson also entered the transfer portal this offseason.

Enaruna stayed in the Big 12, migrating to Iowa State. Grant-Foster moved on to DePaul.

Neither Muscadin nor Thompson has decided on his future as of Friday.

Jossell scored 13 total points during his brief time at KU, going 3-for-8 from 3-point range in his 27 total minutes of playing time.
