Peters leaving KU
Freshman forward Zach Peters is leaving the Kansas basketball program at the end of the fall semester, KU coach Bill Self announced Monday.
Self said that Peters was battling lingering health issues and decided he needed to return home to Plano, Texas, to address his health before he mapped out the rest of his college career. Peters had dealt with a nagging shoulder issue, but Self also said Peters had suffered multiple concussions — including two since he arrived at Kansas.
“I hate that this is happening,” Peters said. “I have really enjoyed my time at KU.”
According to Self, Peters has been diagnosed with four concussions since the beginning of his senior year of high school. He suffered one last summer after arriving in Lawrence and another in September. Peters, who was also a standout football player in high school, is still deciding whether he wants to continue to play sports. Self added that if Peters were his son, he’d probably suggest the same thing.
“He wants to move in a different direction,” Self said.
