Nice to see a big time prospect coming out of the 'ta.' Seems like it's been a while.

Obviously would be great to have a Kansas 'star' on the team.

Alot of sites are saying this kid is going to be ranked number one in his class when all the official 12' rankings come out. He is 2nd on ESPN's Fab 15 right now and i dont know of any other sites with rankings for his class yet. But he is really good. Can play anywhere from the 2 to 4 from what i'm told. He's also almost definitely going to be ours to lose. I wouldn't say it's a lock, but we're definitely the heavy favorite for landing him.
