This past season for Kansas didn't exactly meet the high standards set for the basketball program. However, the future is looking extremely bright for the Jayhawks.

Kansas will feature a star trio of Udoka Azubuike, Silvio De Sousa and Devon Dotson for the 2019-20 season. All three players made the bold decision to play another year of college hoops before going pro.

Bill Self doesn't have the strongest recruiting class at the moment, but that could change in the near future. Four-star recruit Jalen Wilson is considering the Jayhawks in his final list of schools.

Even if Kansas doesn't land Wilson, it did an excellent job of convincing Isaiah Moss to transfer to the program.

Moss is thought of as one of the best graduate transfers in the entire country, averaging 9.2 points per game for Iowa in his junior season.

With Moss ready to give the Jayhawks much-needed shooting on the perimeter, the Big 12 powerhouse is soaring up preseason power rankings.

Gary Parrish of CBS Sports updated his early power rankings, moving Kansas from the No. 12 spot to the No. 7 spot due to the addition of Moss.

The Jayhawks will lose Dedric Lawson, Lagerald Vick and Quentin Grimes for next season.

Regardless of those three losses to the roster, the likelihood is that Kansas will be a contender.
