Former Kansas Jayhawk Silvio De Sousa is transferring to UT-Chattanooga after the 22-year old spent three seasons with the program. Stadium's Jeff Goodman reported the news first, and then De Sousa made the following announcement on his social media. 

"HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE I WILL BE ATTENDING THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE AT CHATTANOOGA.

I'M OFFICIALLY A MOC.'

De Sousa came to Lawrence as a four star recruit, and had a controversy-filled stint with the Jayhawks. He was ruled ineligible for his sophomore season in 2018-19 after it was alleged that he took money during recruitment. He was suspended in 2020 for his involvement in a massive postgame brawl in a January game against Kansas State. 

He left the program later that year, and it was revealed that he is facing felony battery charges for his alleged role in a New Year day barfight. The Kansas City Star reported more about the incident here.

De Sousa has one year of eligibility left.

Just a year ago, our liberal-led cities were ordering the riot police to “stand down,” and their city councils were demanding police budgets be trimmed by over 50 percent. The idea of using psychology types to defuse a problem rather than a badge-and-a-gun greatly appealed to anti-cop enthusiasts. But now the “chickens have come home to roost” and those hand-twisters like Seattle ... (click for more)
