New 2019 Recruiting



  • I think we’ll be okay without him if that’s what happens. I like the current roster a lot.

    Agree. I think he’s coming but he’s pretty much Brannen Greene (but not crazy).

    A lot more skilled but a way worse shooter than Brannen.



  • On rivals Corey Evans picked KU yesterday. If he’s on his streak still that means it’s anything but KU.

    And Russ wood picked KU today also.

    Any word on what Slater is picking?

    True that Brannen really was a great shooter. Idk about way worse though. The lack of lateral quickness was the main point of comparison for me.

    @rockchalkwyo No need for Slater to weigh in on this one.



  • @rockchalkwyo Kansas



  • Ok great. I’m nervous and getting antsy I suppose. Thanks @BShark and @FarmerJayhawk.

    Farmer is right though of course, Slater’s pick is KU.



  • I don’t really know even what supposedly was said - -whatever it is - - I’m not buying - -I think he is KU



  • New potential target. High ceiling dude. Wasn’t really recruited because everyone thought he was going JuCo (because he was). https://247sports.com/Player/Lk-Wur-46081610/

    Better than Bilau?

    Honestly don’t know. I like Bilau just because he fills a position of need moving forward but Wür has a really high ceiling too.



  • @FarmerJayhawk I think either one would tbh. Getting a post player in the program to take a developmental year would be a great use of the last scholarship. If it works out that’s less work you have to do in 2020, if not you just move on. Low risk, high reward. Whereas if the last scholarship stays open then we are looking at needing at least one starting level big.





  • @BShark I concur. Good strategy to take a flier on a guy with #13. Assuming Wilson we won’t need that spot anyhow.



  • For people without VIP, it sounds like Wur just found out he will in fact be eligible.

    A lot to work with there. That FT% is really intriguing as far as perimeter shooting potential.

    How seriously do you think we are looking at a 13th fill for 2019? - I’m being serious here , cause I honestly don’t know. - with the kid like you posted , do you think we are considering him - -do you think he would be worth taking our last Scholli? - -I’m not trying to be a smart ass - really I honestly am curious - do you think he is worth the last one or not/ - would he be worth it? -or should we pocket it? - honestly after Wilson I figured that wrapped up our 19 recruiting - hadn’t really heard much more on Josaphat - do you know , have you heard if he ever sit a date to visit? - - Thanks Bud - - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer73 i think Self is serious about filling it. I kind of think he likes taking these kinds of guys on and seeing what he can do to develop them. Self wants the last visit with Bilau. If his grades are all good I think we offer.



  • @jayballer73 He was pulling your leg…lol. we got him…



  • Here’s a page with a bunch of video of today’s scrimmage. check out Dok hitting a 17 footer!

    So your thinking is - -we would reach out to him before this other guy? - - I kind of like Bilau got a little range - some rim protection - hop a little. - maybe take that chance? - Again though I know there was talk about him making a visit - I just hadn’t heard any specific date - do you know ? - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    The staff is in contact with both. I’d guess Bilau visits first, but neither has been offered. Neither will until the staff sees them. Self wants Bilau to visit KU last, so they’ll figure out a date once Bilau is done taking visits to states not named Kansas. I don’t know anything about a potential visit from Wür. He wasn’t even cleared for NCAA competition until this week.

    Thanks for the info bud , as always greatly appreciated. – ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Highlights from the scrimmage:



  • To me, Ochai looks like a monster in the video. Stronger, faster, playing with a killer mentality. Break out ahead…



  • Ochai will be, IMO, the most improved player from last year.



  • rockchalkwyo said:

    Ochai will be, IMO, the most improved player from last year.

    Could be, he looks really good. He did start good last year though, I think Dave could be a candidate as well, even in limited minutes.



  • Yeah Big Dave would be my other guess too. If Doke has a jump shot now then he’d be in the running too. Man oh man I’m ready for Duke!



  • @rockchalkwyo I’ll buy the whole board a beer if Doke even attempts a jump shot in a meaningful situation. :astonished: I’d probably faint.

    From what I’ve read it sounds like Doke didn’t exert himself at all. Didn’t bang in the paint. Given it’s just a camp thing, that makes a lot of sense even not factoring in that he is recovering from injury.



  • @BShark didn’t exert himself and shot 7 of 8



  • @BShark I’ll take a Sam Adams please



    • Silvio can dribble well in transition. Even in high school vids. Feeling good about my 10.5 ppg estimate. Only reason he wouldn’t score 10.5 if he’s not asked to and he defers.
    • Love Mcbrides form. Pure. I think he’ll see meaningful minutes alongside DD.
    • Really enjoyed the energy. Felt like a team having fun together. Dave was cracking up after Mitch’s blown monster dunk. DDot was hugging / obstructing Garrett.
    • Good to see EJ and TRel running with the kids.


  • This team looks deeeeeeeeep . Our 2nd string would be a top 25 team.



  • If Jalen Wilson pops for KU today, KU will have the 15th ranked class in the Country.

    This will be tops in the Big-12 narrowly beating Texas Tech & Texas.

    Not a bad finish after what has happened.

    I did that calculation the other day too. Wilson is not only important for a great athlete in the roster but more importantly he makes KU first in the big 12 and will show future recruits that KU is in fact not on a downward trend.

    Lol - - Yes BShark - - make mine a platinum please. - -lmao

    Could be, he looks really good. He did start good last year though, I think Dave could be a candidate as well, even in limited minutes.

    If Ochai can get comfortable dribbling and improve his ball-handling from last season then he will take his game to another level. His handle looked pretty good in this video and he was creating shots for himself and for other teammates. I’ve heard his shot has improved too.

    I am the leader of the DMac bandwagon but I don’t think he’ll get the minutes to be most improved player for Kansas. I think he takes a big leap in 20-21 as a junior.



  • Braun behind-the-back pass. Braun looking pretty athletic throwing it down in transition. Braun shooting 3’s. Braun praised for being tough by teammate Ochai Agbaji. I like him.

    Issac looks and kind of moves like Frank Mason.

    Doke with the left. Doke with the mid-range?!?! Let’s hope this is a positive sign for Doke with the two made free-throws next season.

    SDS looks like the after picture in an Andrea Hudy Fitness Infomercial.

    Dotson looks like the best player on the floor.

  • @BShark you are crazy! 👍



  • @Crimsonorblue22 ? I just think we are overhyping our players right now for the most part. Especially Silvio.



  • @BShark My conservative estimate is that Silvio will average 20 and 20 next season while savagely dunking on each of KU’s opponents en route to an undefeated season and a natty. I don’t think my expectations are unreasonable.



  • @BShark I think some people way over hyped players, last year! I’m waiting, still mad that rj made fools of us too. Very cautious about Wilson too.

    Dave is already a huge Boy - -he is a absolute beast in the shadows lurking - - sometimes well early when he was playing his motor was in 4th gear when it needed to be in 2nd - but I love the kid - he is going to be a really big piece for us coming up. - -even though he will be behind Doke - I think he will still get very serviceable minutes THIS YEAR. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Anybody heard how Jalen is making his announcement? - -Gathering of people? - -Social Media? - -Twitter - -what? - - - Airplane via Aircraft Carrier – Camel while headed over sea’s lmao - -personal message through the President? - - let me know ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    I’m pretty sure on social media



  • No timeframe on Wilson’s announcement?



  • @jayballer73 I’ve heard it’ll be done via live streaming. He’s going to gather all of his family and friends close to him for his announcement. Next he’s going to arrange a Jayhawk, a Tarheel, and a Wolverine as corners in a large imaginary triangle. He will then decapitate a live chicken in the center of the imaginary triangle and follow that poor headless bastard to whichever school it chooses to run. But that’s just what I heard.
