LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Freshman guard Milton Doyle has left the Kansas basketball program.

Jayhawks coach Bill Self said in a statement Monday that he spoke with Doyle at length over the weekend about his role in the program. Self said that "the first option was welcoming him back for the fall," but that Doyle decided on his own to leave the program.

The 6-foot-4 guard from Chicago was a late addition to the Jayhawks' recruiting class. He was originally committed to Florida International before Isiah Thomas was let go as coach.

Self said Doyle decided to find a program where he had a chance to make an impact early in his career. Kansas returns Elijah Johnson and Travis Releford from last season's national runner-up, and has several high-profile recruits joining the team.
