Hunter Mickelson, a native of Jonesboro, Ark., averaged 5.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.2 blocks while logging 16.6 minutes a game last season. He picked KU over Butler.

Mickelson, who will have to sit out the 2013-14 season because of transfer rules, hit 47 percent of his shots and 80 percent of his free throws last season.

He scored a career high 16 points against Robert Morris and grabbed a career best 13 rebounds against Northwestern State. Mickelson started 25 of his 64 career games.

Mickelson set the school record for most blocks by a freshman (72) two years ago. He set the school record for consecutive games with a block (20).

He had a team-leading 39 blocks last season. He was originally recruited by former coach John Pelphrey in a class that included Devonta Abron (now at TCU), B.J. Young (recently declared for NBA Draft) and Kyle Madden, who remains at Arkansas.
