Kansas Basketball Recruiting update - 1/19/2015

New, 4 comments

A quick look around the nation to check in on our basketball recruits.

NBPA Top 100 Camp

As I was beginning to round up link to update everyone on our potential recruits for the next couple years, a donor who wishes to remain anonymous was kind enough to send the list he has already compiled.  He was very thorough.

I'm hoping to make this a bi-weekly thing, and would appreciate any help in rounding up the links.  If you run across any recruiting news, feel free to link to it here, or send me an email and I'll include it in our next post.

Las Vegas (Nv.) Bishop Gorman big Stephen Zimmermann was the MVP of the Beach Ball Classic. He has Arizona, UNLV, UCLA, Kentucky and Kansas in his final five but is focused on his season now. ($)

Kinston (N.C.) small forward Brandon Ingram is a big target of Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas and UCLA and N.C. State have watched him.  Ingram visited North Carolina this past weekend.

Dick Vitale had kind words for 2016 High Point (N.C.) Wesleyan Christian power forward Harry Giles before playing against the North Carolina JV squad. Giles watched the UNC vs. Louisville game and got love from the Tar Heel student section and also recently attended the Duke vs. Wake Forest game at Wake Forest. Kansas and Kentucky are also trying to get in the mix.

Marietta (Ga.) small forward Jaylen Brown visited North Carolina and has set an official visit to Michigan. Kentucky, Kansas, and UCLA have also gotten visits. Brown is planning on unofficial visits to Georgia and Georgia Tech.

Delray Beach (Fla.) Elev-8 Prep Academy wing Kobie Eubanks has a top 10: Georgia, Oregon, Maryland, Missouri, Providence, Kansas, Virginia Tech, South Florida, Louisville and Connecticut are the schools  on the list. Eubanks just visited Oregon.

2017 Chatsworth (Ca.) Sierra Canyon forward Cody Riley is a top 10 sophomore prospect, and Kansas might have the early edge.

Still, it's worth noting that he mentioned that location will not be a factor in his recruitment. Riley is originally from Kansas, so the early thought is the Jayhawks have an extra recruiting pitch to throw at the talented power forward. Ultimately he will be recruited by the top programs in the country as he continues to expand his game. With what he's able to do already, it's no surprise that he's so highly sought after at a young age.
