Dosunmu signs with NBA’s Bulls

Former Illinois star Ayo Dosunmu and the Chicago Bulls have made it official. After being selected in the second round of the recent NBA draft, Dosunmu has signed a two-year, $2.48-million guaranteed deal with his hometown team, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The Bulls chose the 6-foot-5 guard with the 38th pick following a stellar three-year college career with the Illini. Dosunmu was the first true freshman in program history to lead Illinois in scoring, averaging 13.8 points per game in 2018-19. He capped his time in Champaign with a consensus first team All-American nod as a junior in 2020-21. (James Boyd, Decatur, Ill., Herald & News)

Notre Dame picks starting QB: Wisconsin transfer Jack Coan is Notre Dame’s starting quarterback, coach Brian Kelly announced in a Twitter post. Coan started for Wisconsin in 2019, leading the Badgers to the Big Ten title game. He completed 70% of his passes and threw for 2,727 yards and 18 touchdowns two seasons ago.

Coan suffered a broken foot before last season’s Big Ten schedule began and did not play, losing the job to Graham Mertz. Coan transferred in the offseason to Notre Dame and succeeds long-time starter Ian Book, who was drafted in the fourth round by New Orleans. (AP)
