At the end of White Sand [prose version] Kenton decides to chase after Khriss, and we're left without knowing how that turns out. As we know, Khriss later becomes a notable worldhopper. Has anyone here spotted anyone else fitting Kenton's description in other Cosmere works, indicating that Kenton also became a worldhopper?

So far, not a thing. Since we know precisely nothing about the important period between the end of White Sand and Khriss and Baon leaving Taldain it's pretty much impossible to speculate what motivated them to leave. Then from there the question of what prompted Autonomy to interdict the planet is equally mysterious. There's two obvious plot threads that the Prose version doesn't resolve (the new Kerzian leader and his coup at the very end of the book and the implied Darkside plot involving the Dynasy) and either or both of those could have led to all sorts of radical developments that we can't predict  So there's a ton of possibilities for Kenton (died before Khriss left, chose to remain, left either with her or at some other point and is/is not still alive...) and no way to even guess which options are likely.

Yeah, like Weltall said, we haven't seen Kenton. We have seen Baon off-world, though, for a very brief time.

I imagined two possible reasons why Kenton wouldn't be with her.  The most likely reason being that he was too important to leave on the kind of extended time that is required to do the scholarly work that Khriss does.  He is the leader of the sandmasters(right?  Its been awhile), and radically changing the way they are structured and working.  Seems to me he is kind of a big deal now.  Secondly, he could have died on Darkside while over there.

That is just my personal head cannon on why he isn't seen running around with those 2.

Is the prose version or the graphic novel the cannon?

The Graphic Novel. The prose is just a rough draft, and apparently some things in the third part of the GN are going to play out differently.

Here is a really tiny thing that may or may not mean anything.

"Perhaps you would like to visit Kenton Street?"  - Mistborn Final Empire Chapter 17

He has a street named that shares his name in Luthadel. Whether this is Brandon doing a meta nod to a character in another series, reusing a name he like from something that was not published at the time or it is meant to mean he visited Scadrial is unclear.
