After securing his release to transfer from UCLA on Monday, quarterback T.J. Millweard has committed to play at Kansas under head coach Charlie Weis. The redshirt freshman will sit out a season due to NCAA rules and be eligible to play in 2014.
Millweard had said he wanted to enroll at a school in the South or Midwest. A graduate of All Saints Episcopal in Fort Worth Texas, he also spent eight years of his childhood in Kansas City. His mother, Cynthia, is a Kansas alum.
Well, that’s … bold. Adidas introduced daring new alternate looks for six basketball programs Tuesday, continuing what’s become a norm in college athletics. UCLA will be among those donning camouflage-patterned shorts, joining Baylor, Cincinnati, No. 21 Notre Dame, No. 10 Louisville, No. 6 Kansas.
UCLA, Baylor and Louisville’s new alternates also feature camo sleeves. The Bruins last attempt at an uniform change didn’t go very well, using an all-blue look during a home overtime loss to USC. They’ll wear this latest edition at least once during the Pac-12 tournament.
UPDATE: A UCLA spokesperson said players were presented with uniform concepts in advance and loved them.
