""Self said he envisions Whitman as an option to play the five position but also someone who can move away from the basket and play alongside a five."

Good luck.

And there in lies the rub. Jack sees himself as someone who can develop into a "stretch 4", and Self alludes to the same above. Yet with the Tribe I never recall one time where he took a shot facing the basket where he was even 8-10 feet away. And from everything I saw from Nathan last year, it would be he, not Jack, who would play the "stretch 4" position if both he and Jack were on the floor at the same time.

Whitman didn't attempt a single 3 in his career. Knight was 2-12. To paraphrase Tennyson, it is better to have tried to shoot jumpers and failed than to never have tried to shoot jumpers at all.
For what its worth, I work with a guy who is a big KU fan. we went to the KU vs. Davidson game in KC this past season.

He said that KU did really need a back up big man and he would be surprised if Whitman didn't get on the court most games and could average 10 minutes per game playing inside.

Self was forced to play 1 in 4 out last year and they struggled when the 1 in was on the bench. he wants to play 2 bigs at one time, but couldn't this past season.

Signing Jack is like when an NBA team uses a mid level cap exception to get a backup that they think they need.
Whitman has gone from the outhouse to the penthouse. Living in a luxury dorm, a short walk from the arena. All those banners. Every game is a spectacle. Beautiful town filled with basketball crazed fans. Rock chalk Jayhawk. I'm happy for the kid.
The outhouse? Do explain.

Outhouse, as in "out of the postseason". I understand exactly what SoCal Frank was saying, and honestly, I wouldn't take any offense to it. Our history speaks for itself.

More of a Split-level. Definitely not a Tudor.

Firstly, this is a metaphor for the following. Some background. An outhouse is a poor mans substitute for an indoor toilet I recently visited Soweto where 15 families in a population of 55,000 are assigned to one outhouse. I have personal experiences with outhouses when we were poor. The penthouse is quite the opposite. These are places where movie stars live. Speaking metaphorically, imagine the Kaplan as a bare bones arena. Partially filled , no banners, not even beer/wine/ or good fresh Mexican cuisine. That should be pretty easy.
Now imagine you are in Lawrence KS. Sixteen thousand plus going wild. For every game!!!Championship banners galore hanging from everywhere. Names like Naismith, Chamberlin, Wilt that is, Manning, etc,etc etc. The hall of fame under the same roof which includes the Kansas comet, Gayle Sayers, Frank Ryan, etc.
Get it?
That's why I'm happy for the kid. He'll forever be a Jayhawk.
Sure, just wanted to hear it out of your mouth...you think W&M is a place to **** and KU is quite the opposite. Maybe you should treat yourself to USC football and KU basketball fandom since the Tribe isn't good enough for you.

Guess I have a lot more pride in my school.

Jack walked away because he couldn't get it done in Williamsburg and a freshman beat him out. He walked straight to an established top-tier program where he'll have as much to do with their success as their trainer. Forever a Jayhawk that no KU fan could pick out of a two person lineup.

Oddly enough, I am an SC fan.
Yet another transfer from GW. Noticed 6'10 center Collin Smith announced he is leaving. Talented young big man. I have no idea if there is any interest from Smith or the Tribe.
