The former five-star McDonald's All-American power forward never played a minute for the Kansas Jayhawks.  Suspended at the start of the season for missing curfew and class, just before tip-off against Kentucky in the Champions Classic, Bill Self released an odd statement. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="527"] @KUHoops[/caption] The administration never found a clear enough financial picture for Preston to play at Kansas.  The Jayhawks' top-ranked recruit signed to play with BC Igokea in Bosnia. Preston joins a long list of highly-touted Jayhawks -- Josh Selby, Cliff Alexander, Carlton Bragg and more -- that failed to meet expectations.  Bill Self sure knows how to pick 'em. [mobile_ad]
