Kansas football star Pooka Williams Jr. opted out of the rest of the 2020 season yesterday, making an already difficult year that much worse.

The season has been difficult for everyone given the uncertainty regarding COVID-19, but things can’t get much worse for Kansas football. The Jayhawks are 0-4 this season with their closest game being a 38-23 loss to Coastal Carolina. Kansas has had multiple decommitments in their 2021 class, including four-star receiver Keon Coleman and three-star guard Edgar Amaya.
