Kansas defensive tackle Daniel Wise will take his time figuring out the next move in his football career.
While the coach David Beaty-led Jayhawks went 1-11, Wise recorded 54 tackles, 17.5 tackles for a loss and 6.5 sacks this season.
He’s got the potential to play at the next level, but he told Benton Smith of KUSports.com he won’t rush the decision-making process.
“I haven’t really thought much about it yet,” Wise said to KUSports.com. “Obviously we’ve been focused on this season. But now that I have time I’m going to make the best decision based off family, sit down and talk with coaches, family, all that stuff. I’m really not in too much of a rush. Being here at the University of Kansas, I love it. Love Coach Beaty, love Coach [Jesse] Williams and I trust their advice and I want to make the best decision.”
Wise has the second-most tackles for loss in the Big 12 and the fourth-most sacks.
Wise’s teammate Dorance Armstrong Jr. is also weighing his future in Lawrence, Kansas. Losing both Wise and Armstrong would be a huge blow for a team that already saw its fair share of struggle in 2017.
The deadline to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft is Jan. 15.
