just misc- - -recruits

  • bored, trying to push thru summer. maybe I’m sadistic but kinda anxious to see the 1st football game, just love college sports can’t beat the atmosphere. think its going to be interesting to see how Coach Beaty does I DO like his mo-jo its just gonna take tine, can’t emphasize enough, patience. Now on Basketball recruits I saw where Terrance is close to announcing, still like our chances with him his latest on 247 crystal which was like a week ago still had us way in front like 76% for KU then Smu 12% so lets hope. I also sa where we have gained some ground back on Josh Jackson either # 1 OR # 2 depends on which you look, last time it was KU 46 % and Ariz 46 % now as of the 24th of this month its KU 46 % Ariz 38 % & Maryland 8 % last I knew we were solid with marques Bolden still. A new name that 247 has us in on and some even predicting us is Braxton Blackwell # 38 but it shows Vndy in the lead with 50 % IU at 25 % then KU, Tex, and Louis all at 8 % so to me that’s tellin m not so much. also looking at Alex Reese # 49 a 6ft 9 forward and then some have mentioned Wyatt Wilkes although I think not. In on some very good 2017 recruits which obviously the top one is Micheal porter, then there is Trae Young which I feel our chances ar better with him the Porter, Jordan Tucker # 28 6 ft 7 shooting guard Gary Trent jr # 10 don’t hold your breath there, and then Mahamed Bamba # 4 which talks with Diallo so who knows anyways guys for what its worth have a great day. ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    With Fergy, if he announces soon its going to be KU. Those close to his situation blurted out that he was going to commit months ago and the only reason he didn’t was because he wanted to play out the AAU circuit as an hot commodity. Now that it’s over he can finally decide on his school. Alabama has been mentioned as a possible place but if its anything less than the Hawks it will be an absolute shocker. Just the type of recruit we could use as a springboard for rest of the class (especially our other Texas targets).

    Outside shot for Blackwell, seems how Vandy has been front and center throughout & are close to his home.

    Bolden is more than likely a spring signee after his peach jam comments and clearly is letting UNC/Duke/Kentucky into his recruitment. Duke will probably lose ground after Giles commit

    Jackson is still a Arizona lean to me especially with the Miller connection from the U19 games.

    We are very much in the race for Porter & Young in the 17 class. If they do in fact end up a package deal its huge if we can keep in the race for them. Visiting for Late Night is a big deal as well.

  • @jayballer54 I would be shocked if KU lands either Michael Porter or Trae Young out of the 2017 class. They both play for MoKan Elite which has never had a good relationship with KU. This is the same AAU program that produced Alec Burks, Semi Ojeley, and Willie Cauley-Stein and KU was not involved with any player in a meaningful manner. They are sponsored by Nike and this is a case where @jaybate-1.0 is right about the influence of the shoe companies. Burks ended up at Colorado, Ojeley ended up at Duke and WCS ended up at Kentucky, all Nike schools. Burks was unrated coming out of HS so that one isn’t a failure on KU at the time, but the other two were pretty highly rated out of HS and yet KU didn’t go after them and the Nike connection makes the most sense in this case.

  • Would be very happy to see TF commit to KU. Really love the loyal kids that know KU and know its where they want to be and don’t waste all of the coaches time dragging things out. If TF commits, the KU coaches can focus their efforts on the other recruits and building a better team for next year. You never know but it could be the difference in landing a recruit or two. Or perhaps more importantly, landing the right recruit or two for KU.

  • @RockkChalkk

    Definitely, and TF fills an obvious need if we lose some expected players to the draft. His comparison is definitely to a Ben McLemore. I think it helps with the Texas recruits (Bolden, Fox, Herard) if we land him that they would look to join. At least that is the optimism.

  • Good stuff. However, to be fair he also retweeted several Alabama things, also a UNC and Texas tweet too. It definitely seems like its mostly Alabama and KU stuff on his radar.

    will visit Alabama this weekend, according to Eric Bossi of Rivals.com. “He’ll likely follow that up with a trip to Kansas.

  • Those other schools really don’t matter so it’s basically just down to the Jayhawks AND Alabama
