Note: I'm a little surprised to be honest. I thought Beal would be a Jayhawk, but it looks like the Gators have landed a big fish and furthered their cause of returning to college basketballs upper tier. Tough blow, but Self has always come through in the past with a plan B.
Not sure if this presser had hats involved, but if it did it appears the curse is still alive and well when it comes to the Jayhawks and hats.
In what could prove to be the first of several announcements of interest to Kansas fans in the near future, Bradley Beal will announce his commitment and college choice this morning reportedly around 10am CST.
Beal is a five star junior shooting guard out of the St. Louis area. He's the number 7 ranked player in the class of 2011 and it's long been rumored that Kansas and Florida have led for his services.
Others have jumped into the mix including Mike Anderson and the Missouri Tigers and Bruce Weber and the Fighting Illini.
Will Bill Self be all smiles this morning? Hopefully we'll have some good news to discuss later on this morning with the next Jayhawk on board for the future.
