  • I know guys , you almost have to laugh when you see articles about this far in advance, but just thought what the hell I’d toss it out anyways,

    See where KU has offered 2023 Baye Fall out of Senegal the # 6 player in 2023 Ku in on this one early, think they said 6-10/6’11 ? currently has offers from Georgia , Georgetown , Minnesota & KU. plus has many , many schools interested.

    KU is the only school thus far that he has been to BEFORE KU offered , wasn’t actually a Basketball visit as he was in KC for an AAU event. Said he liked the Campus KU was a big School , liked the Conference.

    Curious wasn’t there a player that was 7’6 Taco Fall - - am I imaging that? there was wasn’t there ? - - Possible Relation ? - - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    I read a few articles about Fall and neither mentioned Tacko being related to him.

    No, Taco’s brother is named Niagara (but he is only a 7th grader), Baye is no relation. Lol joke! But I was wondering the same thing, whether they were brothers.

    ya I didn’t see his name mentioned but was just curious, thanks I appreciate it



  • @jayballer73

    The only mention I saw was Fall’s cousin is also on the team he plays for in Colorado.



  • Kansas has offered class of 2023 Shooting guard Elijah fisher per his Instagram page





  • @FarmerJayhawk that’s a WILD top 10.



  • He won’t play in college not worried



  • @BShark said in 2023 Recruiting:

    @FarmerJayhawk that’s a WILD top 10.

    He’s the one who started the talk about high profile recruits going to HBCU’s. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up at Hampton which is where his mom went to school and played softball at.

    He’s also going to be the first player to really put NIL rules to the test assuming they’re in place by that point because this kid is a social media star who already had over 1 million Instagram followers before entering high school and now has 2.3 million followers on Instagram.



  • @BShark said in 2023 Recruiting:

    @FarmerJayhawk that’s a WILD top 10.

    His top 10 includes several Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Williams’ mother went to Hampton, and he has already said that when his list cuts down, he will include HBCUs (he stated this in the plural) on his list.

    • North Carolina Central (top, far left)
    • Alabama State (top, second from left)
    • Texas State (top, second from right)
    • Hampton (top, far right)
    • Tennessee State (bottom, to the left of KU)

    More and more top notch recruits are seriously considering HBCUs for basketball. Makur Maker (ESPN #16 recruit for 2020) picked Howard. It would not surprise me to see more high level recruits consider (and even pick) HBCUs. It wasn’t that long ago that top black athletes attended HBCUs regularly.

    Charles Oakley, Rick Mahorn, and Ben Wallace all went to HBCUs.

    So did HOFs like Sam Jones, Willis Reed, and Earl Monroe. And that’s just basketball. Football boasts the likes of Jerry Rice, Walter Payton, John Taylor, Doug Williams, and many more.

    A lot of those older players attended HBCU’s because it was their only option because of segregation in recruiting, especially if they were from the south which most were since that’s where HBCU’s are.

    Philly was a unique place for basketball back then because a lot of their playground legends (which Monroe was) chose to leave the Philly area for college. I’m sure there are plenty of similar stories from Rucker Park legends as well, but I’m more familiar with the Philly scene because of Wilt’s story.

    I don’t know if Mikey will end up starting a trend, but that kid is a different breed and I’d be shocked if he doesn’t spend a year at probably Hampton before going to the NBA.



  • @Texas-Hawk-10

    Absolutely. I was just pointing to the overall tradition. It hasn’t been recent (no real big time recruits since the 1980’s in basketball, no consistent NBA player grads since the early 2000’s, but those programs used to produce BIG TIME talent, in large part due to segregation. If anything, this shift could hurt some mid majors, as black student athletes may start considering HBCU’s rather than midmajors like the MAC and Sun Belt. Academically, HBCUs have a long history (and even now) of producing the top black scientists, lawyers, doctors, etc.



  • @justanotherfan You know, I won’t argue with his decision.

    Lots of KU connections here.

    Kind of unreal.

    Plays for the same AAU as Jalen/Gethro/Jossell which recently merged with Darrell Arthur’s old AAU team still ran by an old friend of Bill. The cherry on top is that he is the cousin of Dajuan Harris. Almost seems destined to be a Jayhawk.

    Maybe we’ll have better luck with this McBride.
