New 2019 Recruiting



  • @Crimsonorblue22 or the ultimate K treatment. Play matador D and chuck 3’s



  • Memphis should kick some butt. Not impressed w/penny, but wiseman🤩

    Dude. Sometimes I look at Evan Daniels tweet that KU was a real threat for Wiseman and I think of happier days. I didn’t believe it but it was fun to think about.



  • @HighEliteMajor @nuleafjhawk too bad JoJo wasn’t on a championship team. I have a hard time saying no JoJo, though the odds of a non presumed OAD who doesn’t protect the goods and becomes a OAD and perennial NBA all star seems very very low. Nothing wrong with a non presumed OAD becoming one.



  • I think we have a good shot at Precious, If we can get another guard possibly a grad transfer. I think we will be good to compete for the conference title again. I’m not gonna go after anyone but some of my inside sources are saying addition by subtraction with a couple of the guys that left is the case.



  • poster off the Phog brings up valid point. - -He said that Duke is not gong to get Hurt and Stanley both.

    His reasoning , the return of the players that Duke has on Scholarship at perimeter: -Baker - - -Jack White - - Wendall Moore - - Alex O’Connell - -Boogie Ellis - -Goldwire - - Tre Jones

    Wendall Moore is a McDonald - player -Then Tre returning - and Boogie Ellis just a few number below Stanley. - They might be able to Sell Hurt on PF - -BUT how you gonna sell Stanley playing time with the players they are returning at his spot

    Makes Sense - he can go there and compete for some Minutes - -OR walk into Kansas and pretty much have those minutes at his disposal. I don’t know - -ya I mean Duke is Duke but they got in very late on this while once again Ku been on him for quite some time and a West Coast kid traveling clear across country to play - a lot less of a chance parents get to attend as many games? - I still think we have a legit shot at him. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Stanley knows Hurt is going there so he wouldn’t be visiting if he wasn’t ok with the roster situation. I think Duke will land both.

    it’s not Hurt that Stanley has to worry about - -really crowded at Stanley’s position - I don’t think they get both



  • I think they get both…Duke is becoming the OAD factory.



  • Agreed. Duke’s cash machine seems very well oiled. I think they get both.



  • We might also consider that OADs like Duke because, as we’ve seen, ESPN provides over the top coverage of Duke. Also seemed that way with coach Cal and UK.



  • @HighEliteMajor today at UVAs celebration they played this year’s one shining moment video and replaced the seven Zion and Morant clips with highlights from all the UVA players



  • @approxinfinity that’s awesome!



  • Not KU related , but I just saw Buzz Williams picked up FOUR commits yesterday! That’s insane for basketball. I think a couple of them were players he had committed to him at VA Tech, but still very impressive. He’s going to kill it at A&M.



  • Will KU sign another recruit ever again?



  • CASSIUS STANLEY IS DOWN TO 4 SCHOOL DUK OREGON KU UCLA



  • BShark said:

    Nope. KU isn’t playing basketball next season. Year after TBD.



  • @FarmerJayhawk We’re going to concentrate on football.



  • nuleafjhawk said:

    Exactly. We’re a football school now. We want Bama



  • Hearing that Matthew Hurt cancelled the weekend visits from Kentucky and Kansas. Per Jake Weingarten on Twitter…🤔



  • Yea, the Hurt shipped has sailed. Pretty epic whiff by Self.



  • Or a pretty epic payout by Duke.



  • ajvan said:

    he all duke



  • Any chance hurt gets the bolden treatment?



  • @HighEliteMajor I’d just like to add to this. Has anyone listened to Sherron Collin’s interview on the Ain’t No Seats podcast? There’s a part where he talks about what it was like to play with Xavier Henry. Sherron struggled to make it “his” team even though he had clearly earned it: “I didn’t come back to win the Big 12; I came back to win a title. I wanted to be the first player to win 2 in their time at KU.”

    Instead, they had to focus on getting Xavier his shots because he had to go the NBA. Because it wasn’t just about Xavier, it was about the direction recruiting was going and Self trying to send a message that, “you can be a OAD and play at Kansas.” There was also Xavier’s dad hanging around the team causing drama. Sherron said once when Xavier had a bad half, his dad chewed his ass in the tunnel. He came into the locker room with tears in his eyes. It all came home to roost against UNI.

    That right there? That, my friends, is poison. An absolute cancer. Not saying all OADs bring that sort of drama, but that is the kind of thing you want to avoid altogether.

    You think Devonte or Frank Mason’s parents pulled some shit like that? No, they were just happy to be there. THAT is what KU needs to go back to.



  • Didnt even make Hurts final 2



  • Sad.



  • @MoonwalkMafia That’s about as powerful as it gets. And it gives us some indication as to what may have occurred this season with Grimes. I don’t believe I’d heard Collins’ comments on that before, so thanks for posting. It’s right on point.



  • @BeddieKU23 who is his final 2 , Duke and ??



  • @Woodrow 2) wherever Nike💰 says to go. Adidas isn’t leveling the playing field for us right now.



  • Tristan Enaruna is down to KU, Creighton, and Miami. He will visit all 3 at the end of the month per Evan Daniels.

    If we can’t land this kid against those two schools with immediate playing time then WTF.



  • Thanks for all the insights on recruiting guys. Never have I been so interested in our targets.



  • Wonder if Mr. Hurt got a nice consulting gig in Durham?

    Anyway, still have a good shot at Holyfield, Enaruna, and Precious for 4’s. Hampton as a 2. I’m also more optimistic than most Doke comes back.

    Perhaps the quote of the year …

    I’m beginning to wonder about Doke myself. - -Thought at 1st there was NO CHANCE, still feeling pretty low on it but more then yesterday or the day before. -Why is he taking so long to announce? - He is the one I would of thought for sure would of been the 1st or one of the 1st - -seems like he is holding off for some reason. - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    I’m Missing it , have seen it before - is he front line help? - or what ? - -hght ? - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer73 He is 6’7 wing type player. Possibly a stretch 4.



  • @MoonwalkMafia I always “knew” that kind of crap went on but i didn’t KNOW it for sure.

    I’m real close to being done with this crap.

    Maybe I’ll go back to golf after a 30 year hiatus.

    Maybe FootJoy can sponsor me. Maybe I’ll get gold plated clubs, ride in Bentley’s and smoke Cuban cigars, hookers at the 19th hole - AND I won’t have to order off the dollar menu any more. I can order from the big boy’s menu!



  • well good to know we are in Tristan 's Enaruna final 3 : - - we getting the final visit too.- - - - -Miami - -April 24th - - - -Creighton - -April 26th - - & - Ku - - April 28th - -we need something to start going our way



  • Looks like Beverly is committing today and Miami is the choose. Running out of options.



  • Woodrow said:

    Looks like we aren’t paying, which hurts our chances with ANY recruit.



  • KU never really pushed on Beverly.



  • @Woodrow

    Duke and Duke

    Not really we feared this for a while

    Problem is, he isnt a starter next yr. Doesnt even play the 4 in HS



  • @jayballer73

    No, he is a wing



  • Precious or Holyfield at the 4



  • @FarmerJayhawk Can KU beat out Miami and Creighton for this kid though? We know both will back up the cash dump truck.

    Staff has to get creative I guess. Hope it happens, I like him long term.



  • Oh and would take either of those two but I think I would actually prefer Holyfield. Achiuwa might be high drama/maintenance.



  • FarmerJayhawk said:

    Then that is a mistake on the staff. They need to be busting their a** on every kid that can make a difference next year.
