A former five-star recruit will apparently be playing for a new team next season. His head coach revealed that he wasn't planning on having him back.

LaGerald Vick, the No. 29 overall recruit in the 2015 class, likely won't be back for Kansas in 2018-19. The former top recruit will be playing elsewhere.

The guard had declared for the NBA Draft, but didn't sign with an agent and ended up withdrawing. It doesn't look like he'll be returning to KU, though.

Self said that, while a final decision hasn't been made, he doesn't plan on having Vick back in 2018-19.

“The talk we had at the end of the season would be that he would go somewhere else if he decided to stay in school. That was something we talked about. We kind of agreed on that,” Self told ESPN.

Self continued:

“He should look into whatever he wants to do, or look into other schools or whatnot," Self said. ”But there will be a point in time when I get back that I'm sure we'll sit and down and we'll visit and talk about the situation. But I have not planned on having him back since the season was over."

It's unclear what Vick is going to do. He was reportedly spotted at Louisville earlier this week.

Vick averaged 12 points and nearly 5 rebounds a game for Kansas in 2017-18. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

Stay tuned.
