Charles Baldwin‘s winding journey through college football will apparently include another stop.
David Beaty confirmed Thursday that Baldwin will graduate from Kansas next month and will then transfer to another undetermined, football program. And, while his name has remained on the Jayhawks’ roster, he apparently hasn’t been part of the team for quite a while.
From the Lawrence Journal-World:
Baldwin, a 6-foot-5, 305-pound tackle first disappeared from KU’s depth chart two weeks into the 2017 season. He soon after left the program completely, fourth-year head coach David Beaty revealed Thursday, during his first press conference of the spring.
KU’s head coach confirmed Baldwin left the team early this past fall and hasn’t been involved with any type of practices or workouts since.
Baldwin came to KU as a transfer from Alabama in 2016, but he never played a down for the Jayhawks.
Baldwin was considered the top junior college offensive tackle the 2016 recruiting cycle, rated as a five-star prospect coming out of ASA College in Brooklyn, NY. ESPN.com had Baldwin rated as the No. 1 JUCO prospect regardless of position, while Rivals.com had him No. 2 overall.
Baldwin had enrolled at UA in January and took part in spring practice. The 6-5, 297-pound lineman had been competing at right tackle before he was dismissed by Alabama in May of 2016.
