6-foot-9 forward Dedric Lawson and brother 6-foot-7 forward Keelon “KJ” Lawson are reportedly transferring to Kansas. 

Duke, Kansas, Iowa State, and Ole Miss were reportedly in their final four.

Both players will likely sit out due to NCAA transfer rules. 

KJ, the 2017 American Conference Newcomer of the Year, was a redshirt freshman this season after sitting out most of the 2015-16 season with an Achilles injury, would have three years of eligibility remaining.

Meanwhile, Dedric, the 2017 First-Team American Conference forward will have two seasons of eligibility remaining after averaging nearly 20 points and 10 rebounds his sophomore season at Memphis.
