    McGowens down to final 5: Michigan, Georgia, LSU, Nubs, FSU. Some strong ass offers there.

    was we ever in consideration for this one ?

    We checked in for sure. Rumor was he wanted blue blood attention. Apparently playing time was more important. Because IMO there’s no way he was going to start at KU next year barring something weird happening like Ochai and Bryce leaving.

    checks notes 0 blue bloods on list, the math checks out.

    Would be funny if he ended up at FSU anyway.

    Hot rumor is the corn. Which is decidedly not a blue blood. Maybe he meant a football blue blood?

    OMEGALUL



  • just a sincere honest question for 2021 recruiting , do anyone think we might try and get involved with a Grad transfer OR any transfer - -or even Juco for the upcoming 2021 Season - -things been kind of rough. – ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Daron Holmes ends up at Dayton. Weird recruitment…



  • @JAYHAWKFAN214 I like that guy. Man, please step forward Signing Gods.



  • Daimion Collins announcing Saturday. Looks like UK will get another one. Saw OU might be a player too



  • @Woodrow Is it just my imagination, or does Kentucky have like twenty scholarships to give? It doesn’t hurt their chances at scarfing up all of the players that we are waiting for our punishment to be doled out along with Arizona, Louisville and so on and so forth, and Dook - after the Zion thing finally went public - is probably now being looked at as well.

    I know at one point Oklahoma was in really good shape. All I’ve seen lately is ALL KENTUCKY - -I don’t get it, - - is this a Basketball roster OR a football roster as many players they signing

    I DOES seem like they have unlimited number of kids they can sign - - - - - This crap gets really old, but yet for all the talent ol Cal has he doesn’t have ANY more National titles then Bill does - just don’t get it. Like I said to Woodrow - -is this a Basketball roster number of players we are talking about OR is Cal recruiting for Football - -I mean Dam lol. ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Logan Landers commits to Purple Kitties. Poor kid

    Michigan Grabs Top 10 PF Caleb Houstan. Magically Howard can recruit these types. Just Magic

    Landers moved to the 22 class. I think KSU is a good spot for him to actually play. Bossi said KU was not serious about recruiting him.



  • Anybody know ? - - Is KU interested in Jonas Aidoo at all ? - - -Or better how serious are we with him and what are the chances ?

    Off his 247 listed at # 120 but heard he moving up profile says he is 6’11 but they talk and say 7 ft, saw where in his 247 we were 1 of the top 5 schools he listed in interest and listed as warm

    Then read off TOS we had made top 10 - says he was looking at hopefully Jan to be able to know - - -ANYBODY got anything on him ?



  • Top 20 PF Collins ends up at UK, no surprise there after the flurry of CB picks that way.



  • @jayballer67

    They offered so assume some interest.



  • @BeddieKU23 said in 2021 Recruiting:

    KU is very interested and in fairly good. The staff would also love to get Mac Etienne but that is not happening. Once he announces (Ill or Miami?) then I think Aidoo is the top target at the 5.

    Jai Lucas promoted to an assistant shortly before this, with another coach getting demoted. LOL.

    Well he looks like he has some upside, from what I heard he is getting looked at more and more, would be dissapointed IF we did happen to get him. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer67 We’ll be okay, fellow Bucketeer. All things considered, we have a good class this year and the start of a damn good next year. Bill will sign a couple more players. And the damn NCAA crap should be over soon. Thoughts anyone on when the crap might finally end? I mean, for real, will it ever end?



  • Gonna be a REALLY QUIET early signing period - - Starts Weds - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer67

    As long as both sign that’s about as good as we can hope for at this point



  • @BeddieKU23 said in 2021 Recruiting:

    Not expecting any issues here. The only big miss was not getting a PG. Aside from that, recruiting went about as well as we could hope for.



  • @BShark

    Hopefully there will be some options in the spring when he knows what he really needs to get going into 21. Right now the cupboard looks bare for options



  • How about this Jonas Aidoo ? - -Any thoughts on him ? - -you think there is any possible chance we could land him ? - -looks solid only really true blue blood like the article says that on his final 10… Might be one of those cases where we get in on the non rated 3 star that could go to 4 star and in top 100 that would be a real jewel in the rough.

    “The potential growth of both prospects during their time in Lawrence will be exciting to see. However, they might not be the only frontcourt members of this class as the Jayhawks are in the mix to receive a commitment from four-star late-blooming big man Jonas Aidoo.”

    That would really make for a solid front court going forward. 3 modern bigs in Aidoo, Clemence and Muscadin.

    Ya I have heard we in the mix anyways. I don’t know but for some reason I think if we were or could get him to commit i think he could be a pretty good player in time pretty solid on the inside defensively from what I heard rim protector and has some game to him seen some highlights- - but as we know they are hughlights - I just get this feel he would be a nice pick uyp



  • Notable hoops blue blood Nebraska picking up a commitment from a kid Friday that “wanted to go to a blueblood”.

    His brother being there helps significantly.

    A business decision to finish 10th in the Big 10



  • @jayballer67

    Fully agree on him being a good pickup. Self would have a lot of post options next season and to develop for the future.



  • Believe Clemence will sign Saturday since his teammate is Signing with Baylor on the same day.

    Adams signed last night! Yay. Listed at 6’7, his hair tops him out at 6’10

    Hunter Salis won’t sign early. Glimmer of hope there, albeit a spec.

    All Sunrise kids are signing Saturday I believe.



  • You know keep seeing more & more about Jonas Aidoo and the mentioning of KU on other sites. - - 247 was evaluating the Big 12 Early Signing and they were talking about KU and Aidoo possibly signing with KU possibly - -him or saying that if KU could get either him or Mac Etienne , I think our chances are a lot better with Aidoo though - -again if that should happen I think would be solid.

    then they were talking about Back Court help and talking about Hunter Sallis - -which I know guys we all agree don’t think there is a snowballs chance in hell of that happening , - -But here is a Name I guess we have been recruiting hadn’t heard - -talking about the possibility of Brandin Podziemski - KU currently -Ranked # 34 in the Nation in recruiting and saying if KU could land either Sallis or Podziemski that could put KU in the top 10 for recruiting - -maybe some hope - -if we could get Aidoo AND Podziemski - -would be a really solid class. - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Clemence has signed.





  • @BShark said in 2021 Recruiting:

    Clemence has signed.

    Boom. Was worried until it happened



  • “We’ve got two versatile players in Zach and KJ,” Self said. “Both will be very good players for us. They will be impact players for us immediately. We look forward to winning a lot of games with both of them.”



  • Now if we can get Cuffe and maybe a legit grad transfer, I’ll be thrilled.



  • I want Aidoo and Cuffe. 🤑



  • @BShark said in 2021 Recruiting:

    I want Aidoo and Cuffe. 🤑

    I’m with you buddy. Would be a very nice way to fill out the class - we can always hope. I’m afraid just get this feel that Cuffe will end up at St Johns as I think they said his dad went there, family has a pretty strong say. Could be wrong hope I am



  • @BShark said in 2021 Recruiting:

    I want Aidoo and Cuffe. 🤑

    I would be very happy with that 4 man class



  • Made Sallis’s final 8: KU, UK, UNC, Oregon, Creighton, ISU, UCLA, Gonzaga. Don’t think we’re much more than window dressing at this point.

    Sounds like the NCAA thing screwed KU a bit there, according to Bossi.

    that makes two of us. Actually I’m really surprised that he hasn’t come out and siad he was going to Kentucky by now. It was my understanding from everything i had been hearing that he was pretty much gift wrapped to go to Kentucky - -if not there then North Carolina



  • We’re officially out on Mac Etienne. UCLA, Illinois, Marquette, Miami.



  • @FarmerJayhawk said in 2021 Recruiting:

    Been out from the sound of it, your wording reads that way too. Now I imagine Aidoo becomes the absolute top target.

    I think that’s right. Also expect them to be active in the transfer market given likely immediate eligibility for everyone and the lack of evals for HS kids.
