The Runnin' Utes could be in the running for Kansas freshman Royce Woolridge, who announced a couple weeks ago he was leaving their basketball program. 

Woolridge is planning to visit Utah, along with Washington State, Nevada Reno and two other undecided locations. 

A three-star shooting guard out of Phoenix, Arizona, Woolridge held offers from Arizona State and Georgetown before eventually deciding to sign with Kansas back in 2010.

As a player, he was ranked 33rd at his position by Rivals and was named a McDonald's All-American. 

Woolridge told Kansas head coach Bill Self of his decision back on April 15th, citing a desire to want to play closer to his Phoenix home. 

Right now, there does not appear to be a frontrunner, but Woolridge would be a huge pickup for this young coaching staff.

Utah hasn't received a D1 transfer since the Rick Majerus days. 

His father, Orlando Woolridge, played in the NBA from the early 80s until 1994, where he finished his career with the Philadelphia 76ers. Woolridge's brother, Renaldo, plays for the Tennessee Volunteers basketball team.
