Hannon announced his decision to transfer in early April after sharing the news that his dad had been diagnosed with stage II prostate cancer. A native of Kansas City, Missouri, playing for the Jayhawks will allow Hannon to be closer to his dad and family.
He visited Kansas for the Jayhawks’ spring game and clearly found the fit he was seeking.
Joining Hannon in transferring is Dwayne Johnson, who is headed to Texas Tech.
