The Kansas basketball staff has hit the recruiting trail in Texas over the past week to check out some of the top high school basketball prospects in the country that reside in the lone star state. Here are a few Kansas basketball recruiting notes.
The Kansas staff spent time looking at players from the class of 2014 down in Texas last week. The staff got a look at 2014 PG Emmanuel Mudiay (Prime Time Prep/ video). Mudiay is considered one of the best, and maybe the best, PG prospect in the class. Mudiay has size, strength, vision, ball handling and leadership on the court.
Kansas also got a look at 2014 PF Elbert Robinson (Lakeview Centennial/ Garland, TX). The 6’10″ Robinson has been climbing up the must see list over the past few months and is certainly one to watch as the spring/summer AAU season approaches.
This week the Kansas staff will again be in Texas to see a couple of more rising 2014 players. 6’11″ 225 lbs center Myles Turner (Trinity/Euless, TX. Kansas loves bigs that protect the rim so it shouldn’t be a surprise to see the staff continuing to recruit players like Turner.
2014 SG Corey Henderson (Episcopal School Of Dallas/Dallas, TX) is the son of a coach (Corey Henderson Sr. coaches Episcopal) will also get a visit from the Kansas staff this week.
Texas certainly isn’t just a football state anymore. It is quickly becoming one of the top talent rich states in the country.
A member of the Kansas staff will also head east to check out 2013 SF Andrew Wiggins
The hope is that 2014 PG Tyus Jones will visit the later part of February.
