Pooka Williams opts out of remainder of season

Pooka Williams is leaving KU to move back to Louisiana, per his own tweet and statements from KU and Les Miles.

Pooka’s statement reads:

Today I made the very difficult decision to opt out of the rest of the season to be closer to my mother and family in Louisiana. Family and health are the most important things to me. Right now I need to be with my mother, who is battling health issues.

I want to thank Coach Miles and everyone with the Kansas Football program for their commitment and understanding. I believe in the direction of Kansas football and what Coach Miles is building.
