Notebook: Self speaks on Grimes, Vick, de Sousa

The wind blows hard against this mountain side

NCAA Basketball: Iowa State at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

There was a press conference with Bill Self yesterday, so obviously there’s an article about every sentence he spoke...

Bill Self calls Quentim Grimes “probably as complete a guard as we’ve ever had.”

Jesse Newell writes that Grimes’ arrival concludes an excellent recruiting season for Bill Self, and has given Self everything he could want for the upcoming season.

Self says he will meet with Lagerald Vick at least one more time to discuss future plans.

Self believes Silvio de Sousa will be eligible for the 2018-19 season.

Matt Tait writes that KU’s next AD will likely have Oklahoma ties.

Self also says he’s open to returning to USA Basketball to coach the U18 team again in the future.

247Sports writes that while Kansas is coming off a Final Four and seemingly has more talent and depth for next year, it’s not necessarily national title or bust for the Jayhawks.
