KU football recruiting: 3-star DB Daran Branch connects with Tony Hull, adds KU offer
With some 200 or so prospective recruits in attendance for the Jayhawks' Friday Night Lights camp, there were bound to be a few standouts of the event.

“What happened, anyway?” Brandon Rush, KU’s 33-year-old former smooth-shooting wing from Kansas City who now lives in Indiana, said with a smile, asking why the Kansas Jayhawks and Missouri Tigers haven’t played a men’s basketball game since February 25, 2012, when the Jayhawks toppled the Tigers, 87-86, in overtime at Allen Fieldhouse.
