Jayhawks Land Sophomore from PlanoApril 22nd, 2010 by Lee Eldridge
Wow. The Jayhawks are recruiting them young. Zach Peters, a 6-9, 235 pound high school sophomore from Plano, Texas, has verbally committed to Kansas. Peters is widely considered one of the “crown jewels” of the class of 2012.
“First off, I love Kansas basketball. It’s one of my favorite teams to watch. I’ve always grown up watching the Jayhawks,” noted Peters, whose grandmother is from Hoyt and great-grandfather is a KU grad. He still has several relatives living in the Topeka area.
“Most of all, coach (Bill) Self and (Danny) Manning are two of the best coaches in college basketball. I feel I can trust them and feel I can benefit Kansas the most, and they’ll help me benefit Kansas the most. I feel comfortable in Lawrence, and it’s the best place for me.”
