A year removed from the public eye, Dwight Coleby provided a scouting report on what fans should expect from the Jayhawks’ 6-foot-9 transfer from the Bahamas and, more recently, Mississippi.

“Probably rebounding (and) playing tough in the post,” said Coleby, who spent 2015-16 as a redshirt, rehabbing from left knee surgery and sitting out a season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules. “Being physical, protect the rim, play hard,” he added.

Originally from Nassau, Coleby played in all 34 games for Ole Miss in 2014-15, including three starts. He averaged 5.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 16.5 minutes for the Rebels, who went 21-13 overall, tied for third in the Southeastern Conference with an 11-7 record and lost to Xavier in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

As a freshman in 2013-14, Coleby started four of 28 games for Ole Miss and averaged 2.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 10.4 minutes.

“He does have good touch. He’s a good shooter,” KU coach Bill Self said. Coleby hit 53.2 percent of his field-goal attempts and 79.7 percent of his free throws during his sophomore campaign. He also blocked 29 shots.
