Wilkes to transfer after 1 season at Kansas

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Kansas guard Omar Wilkes has decided to
transfer to California after one season with the Jayhawks.

Wilkes, the son of former NBA star Jamaal Wilkes, played in 21
games with Kansas last season, averaging 1.4 points and 0.9
rebounds in just 3.5 minutes per game.

Wilkes announced his intention to transfer two months ago,
unhappy with playing time and wishing to be closer to his family.
He will sit out the upcoming season with the Golden Bears, but will
have three years of eligibility remaining in 2005.
