New 2019 Recruiting



  • KirkIsMyHinrich said:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.



  • I like Braun. I know some have thought that he might be a redshirt candidate, I don’t think so. He’s 6’8 and needs to put on some weight, but he could play the point in a pinch, can shoot the three and dish, has some inside game and is a fighter. Who does he remind you of? I see a raw version of Gordon Hayward.

    Well, the big issue is that the Lawsons, Chuck and Grimes were all subpar athletes. That issue has been fixed. :)

    Today



  • No visit from Bilau.

  • @FarmerJayhawk What happened?



  • I’m not 100% sure. Could be as simple as they like Wur more.



  • FarmerJayhawk said:

    Less of a project? Haven’t had the chance to dive into Wur



  • Probably. He was waaaaay more productive in HS than Bilau. Maybe Bilau wasn’t interested in redshirting?

    Dam – what happened? - thought he was planning a visit?



  • @FarmerJayhawk

    And maybe looking for a place to play earlier.



  • FarmerJayhawk said:

    I thought Bilau looked pretty decent. - - look like he had some stroke - decent ball handler - little rim protection. - -So if that is the case – -man - - I dunno , I’m just really thinking they tuck that last one away

    Kcmatt7 – so you think live stream? - is that something that WE could pick up? - and if yes - -how would that be done?



  • He’s just going to tweet it out. No ceremony or anything



  • FarmerJayhawk said:

    This is usually the move for KU commits it seems.



  • @BeddieKU23 @jayballer73 Wur looks REAAAAAALLY good. Like, my goodness gracious good. Probably would start as a SO. I would be very excited if he ends up a Jayhawk. From a basketball point…it’s possible he would be my favorite recruit of this class.



  • I would pump the brakes on Wur just a bit. Had someone tell me he’s basically Moulaye Niang with a much higher ceiling at this point.



  • His handle looks pretty good for a 6’9’’ guy.



  • @FarmerJayhawk Damn it. I don’t want to.



  • @BShark Weren’t you just hype-policing me a few hours ago?



  • KirkIsMyHinrich said:

    @BShark Weren’t you just hype-policing me not a few hours ago?

  • Wur looks like a freak athlete. My goodness.



  • Don’t get me wrong, he has a chance to be good, but like Fran says, he’s two years away from being two years away. Maybe not quite that long, but you get the gist.



  • @FarmerJayhawk Well, he would at least have a full season before potentially even needing to see the floor. I’d love to have Danny back for bigs…beating a dead horse there I know.



  • FarmerJayhawk said:

    That’s fine. Get him here and slap a redshirt on him. You can’t teach dunking the ball like that.



  • From his pinned highlight tape on Twitter, the dunk off the wrong foot after the in and out dribble on the fast break is just absolutely freak of nature type of stuff.

    100% worth taking a flyer on with the last scholarship.



  • Oh you 100% take a flyer on him. Just keep in mind he may end up as Justin Wesley.

    Kevin Young with some nasty.



  • Seems like more and more freshmen have someone from their posse in their ear about guaranteed playing time, guaranteed starter, OAD, NBA ready and such. Kids turning down offers because they might have to sit and grow their skills or … (gasp)… redshirt!



  • @Gorilla72 To be fair about RS’ing, Bill never asks kids to do it. Leaves it up to the kid which is why we see so few at KU.

    ok cool - -that’s fine too - Again thank you for the info my friend

  • Wilson to KU is official



  • I was sure it was the Harlem Globetrotters.

    Told you guys not to worry.



  • @BShark us worry?🙄

    I wasn’t until @HighEliteMajor sources were saying Globetrotters



  • Man, I was sure he was a Globetrotter. My neighbor’s sister’s kid’s best friend’s boss is never wrong. I’ll have to vet my sources better …
