Late Night - Sept. 30th



  • I’ve put together a list of 2018 recruits coming for Late Night in the Phog on Sept. 30th, thought it would be nice to have it all in one place. Its always a huge recruiting weekend for KU and I expect that we will land at least one of them if not on the visit but very soon after. Here’s the list I have:

    #2 Zion Williamson (SF)

    #18 Quentin Grimes (PG) - At Kentucky this weekend, rescheduled KU for Oct. 13th weekend

    #42 David McCormack (C ) - Committed to KU

    #50 Jalen Carey (PG)

    #60 Zion Griffin (PF) - Signed with ISU

    Anybody else I’m missing?



  • @RockkChalkk For the 33rd year in a row, I am making plans in my head to come but will still not be able to.

    Cool list! Thank you…



  • @RockkChalkk From the August 19 KUSports Matt Tait article, here is an expanded list of your names and more, some official, some unofficial, with a blurb on each:

    • Jalen Carey – Class of 2018 point guard ranked No. 59 on 247 Sports’ Composite Rankings has tentatively set his visit for Late Night. Carey cut his list to a final six earlier this month and joining the Jayhawks on the 6-foot-3, 170-pound Immaculate Conception High (New York City) prospect’s list were: Miami (Fla.), Rutgers, Syracuse, UConn and Villanova.

    • Quentin Grimes – Class of 2018 shooting guard ranked No. 22 overall by 247 Sports included Kansas in his Final 7 earlier this month. Joining the Jayhawks on the 6-4, 175-pound guard’s list were: Arizona, Baylor, Kentucky, Marquette, Texas and Texas A&M.; Grimes told Matt Scott of TheShiver.com that he would officially visit KU for Late Night and return for a game in November.

    • Zion Griffin – No, not that Zion (yet), but the 6-6, 208-pound small forward from Darien, Ill., will visit KU for Late Night. Ranked No. 62 overall by 247 Sports, the recruiting site’s crystal ball prediction currently lists KU as 100 percent to land Griffin, who also lists Illinois State, Iowa State and Pitt on his list. No word yet on an official visit date for Zion Williamson, the No. 1 ranked prospect in the 2018 class, whose top school in the 247 Sports crystal ball prediction is Kansas, leading 38-31 percent over Kentucky.

    • Malik Hall – 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward from Sunrise Christian Academy in Wichita and MOKAN AAU program, Hall is ranked No. 153 in the Class of 2019 by 247 Sports.

    • Zach Harvey – 6-foot-4, 170-pound combo guard from nearby Hayden High in Topeka, Harvey is ranked No. 25 in his class by 247 Sports. Expected to attend Late Night on unofficial visit.

    • Jeremiah Robinson-Earl – 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward in the Class of 2019 who plays at nearby Bishop Miege High and is the son of former KU forward Lester Earl. Ranked No. 23 in his class by 247 Sports. Expected to attend Late Night on unofficial visit.

    • Samuell Williamson – 6-foot-6, 170-pound shooting guard from Rockwall, Texas. Not ranked in 247 Sports’ Top 226 for the Class of 2019.

    • Ty Berry – Class of 2020 point guard from Newton, the 6-2, 170-pound guard will join fellow Kansans Robinson-Earl and Harvey on unofficial visits to Late Night.

    • N’faly Dante – Teammate of Hall’s at Sunrise Christian, this Class of 2020 power forward is ranked No. 17 on 247 Sports’ composite rankings for his class. 6-foot-11, 230-pound forward will make unofficial visit.

    Other known visit dates from notable Class of 2018 prospects include: Charlotte, N.C., point guard Devon Dotson (6-2, 180), who is slated to visit KU Aug. 25; and Bel Air, Md., point guard Immanuel Quickley (6-3, 175), who is slated to visit KU Sept. 2.

    In addition, Shay Wildeboor of JayhawkSlant.com, reported Saturday that Class of 2018 power forward Jermaine Harris (6-8, 220), of Clinton, Md., had scheduled his visit to KU for Oct. 6-8.

    Harris is ranked No. 81 in 247’s composite rankings for 2018 and also will visit West Virginia, Rhode Island, Xavier and Miami (Fla.).



  • Well it’s good to se Zion on Campus - - But I think that with our need in the Back court man would of been nice to see our top priorities in the guard position her. — NONE of our top three wew are after are going to be here for late night , as you know has always been a major recruiting tool for us but none here - - Grimes at Kentucky this weekend - - -Dotson I think is at Maryland this weekend - -& Langford I believe is at UCLA kind of sucks. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

  • Where are you? It’s 6:30-10:30 central time

  • For anyone that doesn’t recognize the kids.

    King Zion is on the left. On the right is RJ Hampton. Stud PG out of Texas in 2020 class but is old enough to where he could reclass for 2019. Hampton is a special player for sure.

    I mean what do you expect? Kids take free gear all the time. Perfectly legal and within NCAA rules.

    RJ Hampton allll about it though. Even had KU socks. :love_letter:



  • @BShark

    We have seen prospects before that wore other brands and no KU associated gear. I am not sure it means anything but it was nice to see.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Oh I thought you were making a negative insinuation. But yeah, still super early with RJ. Plenty of kids like KU early on and end up elsewhere. I’ve read/heard it went EXTREMELY well with RJ and he had a great time.



  • @BShark

    Hard not to have a great visit when Late Night is involved and now they get to see the place where they could live…and the Mid West and more specifically Kansas are normally very friendly places to visit.



  • @JayHawkFanToo Better than normal. Generally it is a good visit though, you are right about that.



  • Marlins man was at late pm
