  • Was reading looking like Wichita going to be putting out some Talent - -again been awhile But starting to show up again.

    Seen some footage on a kid that was mentioned to keep an eye on - -gonna be ALOT of people after him - -pretty fluid, moves well.

    You put him there with Daylan Jones - - Jackie Johnson - -& Ty Berry pretty decent - -Need to start work on the big man - - NOW early -I’m sure there has been some contact - will have to fight Marsha for staying home - -But this kid is going to Draw MAJOR interest - -Watch and see. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Read this morning about two players for 2018 - - # 12 Naz Reid & # 22 Jahvon Quinerly:

    Even though I am not getting over excited maybe a little more so about Quinerly then Reid - beacause if we were to land one of them feel chances would be better for him - -Anyways:

    Reid cut his list to 10 & we made his cut: - - His 10 are: - -Arizona , Kentucky , Louisville , Louisiana State , North Carolina , Rutgers , KU Seton Hall , UCLA , & U Conn - -A Couple who were cut that had been recruiting him - - St Johns & Maryland. = =things that I have read is he could end up at Louisville dunno.

    Then Jahvon cut his list to his top 7, they are: - - Arizona , Seton Hall , Stanford , Villanova , Virginia , UCLA , KU - -Teams cut that had been recruiting him were - - Duke , Maryland , Norte Dame , & Cal. - -Says he is looking to announce in November or December - -w shall see. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • i bet neither of these guys even visit KU



  • @BeddieKU23 Oh I wouldn’t necessarily say that -I’ve got a feeling Jahvon will. – ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54

    Maybe so, that’s if KU doesn’t land a guard commit between now and visit time…



  • @BeddieKU23 You need to check out the footage of the 7 footer from Wichita Sunrise think we might wanna keep in contact with him. ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    Bingo.

    Really looks like Grimes, Dotson and Carey are the most likely guards.

    As for posts that’s still a bit murky but I’d keep an eye on Darius Days.



  • @jayballer54

    Definitely, he doesn’t look like a freshman



  • @BeddieKU23 some one made the statement looks like a mini - -Jo - -jo - -not to far off. hope we are contacting. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54

    I can see early signs of a Top 5 player in his class. Players like him will have all the top programs following especially if he continues to improve further. I do hope we are getting involved no matter if he’s 4 years away or not.

    Considering Self has already contacted Jackie Johnson I would bet the answer is yes.



  • @BeddieKU23 Ya that is what I’m thinking. - -Like it states he has star written all over him - -continue to develop, and like you say anyone and everyone gonna be after him - That’s why we if we are not already making contact when we can - -watching him all the things that go into - hit him hard and heavy. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @BShark Na I’m talking about the 7 footer N’faly and I think that is who our buddy talking about too, really fluid pretty mobile hope we making contacy and stay on hin. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54

    Remember the previous great player from Sunrise Academy in Wichita and where he went?

    Yep, Buddy Hield and he ended up at Oklahoma.

    We certainly have the Embiid angle to sell him, he’s from Mali so maybe even the Diallo angle as well. I don’t know how early is too early to get involved with 2020 kids but definitely laying the ground work would be something they should be thinking about. The 19/20 talent in the KU recruiting area is filthy. It’s hard to imagine we could fill up those classes with local products but in this case the talent definitely is worth doing so.



  • @BeddieKU23

    Never too early, promising Junior High kids are now being looked at by colleges.



  • Well forgive me if these have already been mentioned but some others we have offered for 2019: - -5 Star Keion Brooks out of Ft Wayne Indiana , lists Xavier, Purdue, KU right now , – - Interest from Michigan State - -& Indiana

    Then there is Ashton Hagans out of Covington Georgia - - - PG - - - has offers from Wake F , Louisiana St , Georgia , Fla , Fla St , & KU

    Plus - -Joey Baker - - These are some other 2019 recruits.

    Then was you was wondering when someone should get into recruiting a player - -well another 2020 recruit we have offered - -R J Hampton - -out of Little Elm Texas 6’3 PG- - -has got offers from Texas , Oklahoma St , SMU , Texas A&M , KU

    Heard anything on any of these guys - -holler - - -ROCK CHALK AL DAY LONG BABY



  • @BeddieKU23 And I would increase your bet by raising you that no remaining recruit gives KU a sniff. The better question is WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE RECRUITS?



  • @truehawk93

    I wouldn’t go that far. The 2 guys in particular are just not likely to be serious options given what’s known about each’s recruitment.

    Reid has a handler that wants him to stay relatively close to home.

    Jahvon Quinerly is one of several PG’s Self is after but likely Grimes and Dotson are priorities over him so its hard to land an Elite PG if your after others…

    Self’s needs at least 1 top PG, a top SG, a wing, and a top 5 (depending on Doke’s season).

    All good talents. Brooks seemed pumped about the offer.

    Hagans has had a very good spring so far. One to keep an eye on.

    Baker, also a talent. Tough recruiting area he’s from though



  • Have to think Baker is just waiting for UNC to offer.
