Kansas is getting back one of its best players on the defensive line in Daniel Wise.
Wise, a defensive lineman and captain, announced his return for his senior season in a tweet Wednesday night.

Wise was a bright spot for an otherwise bad Kansas team. He finished the season with 53 tackles and seven sacks, and was named a First-Team All Big 12 selection. It’s pretty clear that the Kansas program realizes how valuable Wise is. The team’s official Twitter account celebrated his return…
YES! 😤💯 https://t.co/MFtA5fzfo1

Wise will be back terrifying offensive lines in the Big 12 in 2017. That’s very good news for the Jayhawks.
