LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Liberty forward Evan Maxwell is transferring to Kansas, where the school announced Monday that he will have to sit out next season under NCAA rules.
The 6-foot-10 Maxwell played two seasons for the Flames and started all but one game last season. He was second on the team with 10 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.
He had a career-high 24 points with 12 rebounds in a game against Radford in December.
Maxwell joins a highly regarded recruiting class that includes Josh Jackson, the top-ranked in the nation, five-star forward Udoka Azubuike and forward Mitch Lightfoot. Maxwell will be eligible for the 2017-18 season.
