Zion DeBose never got an opportunity to play for Lance Leipold at Buffalo, yet the previous Virginia Tech defensive end intends to do exactly that at Kansas.

DeBose, a graduate transfer who initially wanted to play for the Bulls in 2021, reported Monday evening he will not at any point make it to UB. Instead, he is following Leipold and various previous Buffalo staff members to KU.

A redshirt junior this previous season with the Hokies, DeBose showed up in four games as a reserve D-lineman. The 6-foot-1, 245-pound veteran from Salisbury, N.C., made six complete tackles and recorded a sack prior to quitting the rest of the 2020 schedule, because of the pandemic.

In spite of the fact that he has just played in two college seasons — DeBose showed up in each of the 13 Virginia Tech games in 2018 — this forthcoming fall will mark his fifth year on a roster at a Power Five program.

Rated a three-star defensive end by Rivals in the Class of 2017, when he signed with the Hokies, DeBose ended up redshirting his first year on campus. In the wake of advancing onto the field as a redshirt freshman in 2018, an injury kept him out of the whole 2019 season.

DeBose at first declared his plans to move to UB in late March, yet that was before Leipold and numerous members of his staff left the MAC to take over the KU football program in the Big 12.

The coaching change at UB drove DeBose, who graduated from Virginia Tech in May, to change his plans, as he selected to proceed with his college career at KU instead.

At the point when DeBose was a high school prospect at North Rowan High, in Spencer, N.C., he got scholarship offers from in excess of a dozen programs, including Purdue, Pitt, Illinois, Missouri, Cincinnati and even KU.
