KU Spring Basketball Recruiting — 2010April 14th, 2010 by Lee Eldridge
Today begins the spring signing period for college basketball, and the University of Kansas still has two scholarships available with the departure of Cole Aldrich and Xavier Henry. KU is on the short list for three specific recruits that we should all be watching.
Considered the #1 high school point guard by Rivals.com in the country, Brandon Knight has yet to commit. Knight is 6’3″ and 185 pounds. His short list of schools includes: Connecticut, Florida, Kansas, Kentucky and Syracuse. He’s expected to pick Kentucky today at his 3pm news conference. You can watch it on ESPNU.
Right below Knight in the rankings is Selby, the #2 high school point guard in the country. Selby is 6’2″ and 186 pounds. His short list of schools includes: Arizona, Connecticut, Kansas and Kentucky. Many expect him to choose KU later this week during the Jordan Brand Classic.
Considered by Rivals to be the #3 high school shooting guard, Lamb is 6’4″ and 175 pounds. His short list of schools includes: Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky and West Virginia.
It’s clear that KU is expecting to land Selby or Lamb, if not both. But these high school kids can change their allegiance in a hurry as we witnessed last year between Xavier Henry and Lance Stephenson. Top high school recruits are seldom predictable.
