LAWRENCE, Kan.—Looking at the Kansas basketball team's roster of freshmen might require a pinch just to see if it’s a dream.

According to, guard Xavier Henry was the eighth overall recruit to come out of high school, guard Elijah Johnson 24th overall and forward Thomas Robinson 31st overall. Center Jeff Withey is the eighth-ranked center in college, according to Guard C.J. Henry has not had much basketball exposure recently, but spent a few years in minor league baseball.

Just like all first-year students, the members of the men’s basketball team are finding out how different life can be on campus. These first-year Jayhawks are in the midst of a transitional phase.
