Micah Downs misses home, leaves KU
Micah Downs, who played at seven high schools and his senior year at Juanita in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland, Wash., will look to play at more than one college as well.
Downs has left the Kansas Jayhawks to "resolve some personal issues," Jayhawks' coach Bill Self said in a statement.
That, and the fact that he kind of sucks. The 6-8 freshman forward was scoring 4.3 points per game at Kansas and scoring with about .002 girls there as well.
There was brief talk about the University of Washington being interested in Downs, but Coach Lorenzo Romar soon discovered that he was a tall, lanky white dude.
Downs also appears to have Down Syndrome, despite sources saying he doesn't. But, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
