"Obviously we're all disappointed with David's decision," Self said. "Even though we don't agree with it, we're certainly respectful of it. We do wish him well with his future opportunities. We wish David and his family the best, and we certainly appreciate the one year of effort he gave us here at Kansas."
"I've made the decision to transfer from KU at the end of this semester," Padgett said. "I think I'll have more opportunities to be a face-up player and play the four-position at another school. I want to wish my ex-teammates and the great KU fans all the best, and I hope they have a great season next year."
