“He really wanted to come here. But no one on the team liked Kris Humphries. He was arrogant…he was an absolute jerk.”
Humphries told KU players of his intent to lead the team in scoring and then bolt for the NBA, according to Langford. Many Jayhawks lamented their distaste for Humphries. Reluctant at first, Williams rejected the blue chip recruit.
Humphries settled on the University of Minnesota, where he averaged an impressive 21.7 ppg and 10.1 rpg. And, true to his word, Humphries left the Golden Gophers after his freshman season.
