New 2019 Recruiting



  • 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.

    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.

    Ya think? And we’re over a barrel it would appear. But I’ll skip this presumed OAD. I’d rather start Lightfoot.

    This is on Self. It’s why you recruit. He’s left us naked and exposed chasing the highly ranked guys he … er, uh … Adidas has apparently paid in the past.



  • Friend of mine in Wichita says KU is leading for Dante if he reclassifies and Doke leaves



  • @FarmerJayhawk that would be great, indeed. If we could land him and Hampton as well as Enaruna, alongside Braun and McBride and perhaps a grad transfer/juco recruit that would a bonanza recruiting haul!

    Bill and Kurtis. Looks like he’s getting the full court press.

    He’s also originally from Mali. I know Cheick enjoyed his time in Lawrence and is thankful for the giant wad of cash KU threw at lawyers and PR people to get the NCAA to clear him.



  • What a mess this years cycle is turning into



  • I know a kid that plays on a local High School team in the town that I live in. Well, “plays” might be overstating it - he’s the towel boy. BUT - he’s seen every play of every game for the past four years. Plus, he’s seen things in the locker room that can’t even be put down in black and white. I feel that by osmosis, he should be as good as any player we’ve seen at KU for the past 2-3 seasons. Plus, he’s got all seven toes (family is originally from Chernobyl…) and one pretty good eye. Should be off crutches by the start of next season.

    I think we could have a shot at him…



  • @FarmerJayhawk hear anything about juiston?

    Health and academics are the big thing. If he can graduate (may be summer) and is healthy, his market should take off. I think it’ll be after this semester before we hear much.



  • @FarmerJayhawk I saw espns top grad transfers and he was 3rd.



  • Read where Braun & McBride both were name player of the year in their State by the USA-Today - good for them, nice to know. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • For what it’s worth glad to see we get the last visit for Tristan. - his visit’s are April 24th - - -April 26th - -and then us - -April 28th



  • @jayballer73 what do you think, break out the Asses From Young (but of age) Lasses?





  • Grant Sherfield ended up at Wichita St.

    Virginia picks up the #400 ranked recruit. I’m sure he’ll turn out good.

    Harlon Beverly picked Miami

    Let’s just hope he even makes it



  • FWIW on Rivals Bossi and Corey Evans think we get Precious and Enaruna. And every day that goes by make it less likely Doke leaves…

    Evans thinks Memphis for Precious according to the article published like 4 hours ago. But Bossi thinks Kansas. Both do have Enaruna.

    I feel very good about us ending up with Hampton. He is an Adidas kid…

  • Self seemed extremely optimistic last night at the banquet whenever recruiting / roster make up was brought up. I know he is not going to go full doom and gloom, but to me it was like maybe he knew he had somethings in the pipeline coming his way.



  • @Kcmatt7 Adidas couldn’t get us Zion or even worse Hurt. That said, RJ seems to like KU a lot so that really helps.



  • don’t put yourselves through the RJ torture just yet. Certainly doesn’t help the teams shooting problems but he does mostly everything else spectacularly



  • @BShark Fair points. And I see he is playing for an Under Armour team now anyways. So maybe I retract everything I said lol.

    Good catch. Just misread it. I’m really watching what Watford does. If he ends up at Memphis, Precious won’t.

    His dad has always been his AAU coach and they have been UA, Nike and Adidas.

    If this will be literally just RJ’s decision I do think the pick will be KU. His dad is large and in charge I believe though.



  • @BShark Well that makes more sense.
