Former Wisconsin guard AJ Storr has committed to Kansas, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Charania reported Arkansas, Illinois and Texas were also in the mix before he decided on the Jayhawks.

Storr averaged 16.8 points and 3.9 rebounds for the Badgers in 2023-24 after having transferred in from St. John’s.

The 6’7″ wing stepped up big for Wisconsin in the Big Ten tournament. He put up 22.5 points per game as the Badgers reached the final, losing to Illinois.

It was a different story in the Big Dance as he shot 5-of-14 for 13 points in an upset at the hands of 12th-seeded James Madison.

“Any team in need of someone who can get a reasonable look at the basket should absolutely recruit Storr,” Vecenie wrote in his scouting report. “But it would benefit him, as well, if that team also has multiple options so that he can slot nicely into a role as a finisher.”

Kansas guard Kevin McCullar Jr. is moving on after exhausting his eligibility and freshman guard Johnny Furphy officially declared for the draft Tuesday, though he’s leaving the door open for a return to college.

By pursuing Storr out of the portal, head coach Bill Self may have been tipping his hand regarding whether he expects Furphy to stay in Lawrence.
