Kansas redshirt senior DT Daniel Wise accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.
What's surprising about this isn't that Wise got invited to the Shrine Game, it's that he wasn't snapped up by the Senior Bowl. Wise, a 2018 All-Big 12 First Team selection, led KU with 12.5 TFL and five sacks. He has 28 TFL over the past two years and 43 over his career despite consistent double-teams. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gave Wise a third-to-fourth round grade heading into the year. The East-West Shrine Game will be played on Jan. 19 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Kansas HC David Beaty said that redshirt senior DT Daniel Wise (undisclosed) is expected to play against Baylor on Saturday.

Wise (6'3/290) sat out the second half of Saturday's win over Rutgers due to a minor injury concern, but Beaty explained to reporters on Tuesday that this was just a precautionary move on the team's part. Wise will practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, Beaty said. A first-team All-Big 12 performer for the 2017 season, Wise is a potential Day 2 selection for the spring draft.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Kansas redshirt senior DT Daniel Wise as a third-to-fourth round prospect going into the 2018 season.

As Pauline notes, Wise hasn't received a ton of hype -- a lot of that has to do with how awful Kansas has been the last few years -- but little of that has to do with Wise, who was a first-team All-Big 12 selection last year. "Wise consistently beats blockers off the snap, shoots the gaps and disrupts the actions," Pauline writes. "He easily changes direction and makes plays laterally in pursuit." At 6-foot-3, 290-pounds, Wise doesn't have elite size or power, but because of his ability to make plays and his versatility, he has a chance to be an NFL contributor next year.

Kansas redshirt junior DT Daniel Wise will return to school for the 2018 season.

"Cannot put into words how valuable Daniel is to our program — an outstanding leader with a tremendous work ethic and an infectious personality!," Jayhawks HC David Beaty wrote to Twitter on Wednesday night, after Wise announced his intentions to return to school. The 6-foot-3, 290-pound redshirt junior registered 53 tackles (16.0 for loss) and seven sacks during the 2017 campaign, earning first team All-Big 12 recognition after season's completion. Wise's return to the line for 2018 is a key keep for the program, though it doesn't completely ease the sting of losing DE Dorance Armstrong Jr. to the NFL Draft earlier this winter.

Kansas redshirt junior DT Daniel Wise will spend the next few weeks considering whether he should enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-3, 290-pounder was a wrecking ball this season, posting 54 tackles, 17.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, five quarterback hurries and two forced fumbles. "I haven’t really thought much about it yet," Wise said about his NFL intentions. "Obviously we’ve been focused on this season. But now that I have time I’m going to make the best decision based off family, sit down and talk with coaches, family, all that stuff. I’m really not in too much of a rush. Being here at the University of Kansas, I love it." Wise will seek out an opinion from the draft advisory board and talk his brother, Deatrich Wise Jr., a fourth-rounder of the Patriots in 2017.
