Bragg set for Late Night
Another top recruit in the Class of 2015 plans to experience Kansas University's Late Night in the Phog on Oct. 10, according to Rivals.com. Carlton Bragg, a 6-9 power forward from Cleveland (Villa Angela-St. Joseph) said he will attend the annual season kickoff event on the heels of 7-footer Stephen Zimmerman (No. 7 senior in the country) confirming the same.
Bragg, Rivals’ No. 9-ranked senior, told Zagsblog he will cut his list of schools to five on Sept. 1, and Illinois, Kentucky and KU will occupy three of those spots.
Diallo schedules visits
Cheick Diallo, a 6-9 KU basketball recruiting target, has planned two official visits — neither to Kansas yet — according to Zagsblog.com.
A five-star senior power forward ranked No. 5 nationally by Rivals, Diallo will take official visits to Iowa State and St. John’s this fall. Zagsblog reported the senior from Our Savior New American, in Centereach, New York, plans to visit KU, too, but no date has been set.
Kansas is said to be among his top five schools, and he already has been to Iowa State, Pittsburgh and Kentucky for unofficial visits.
Diallo averaged 16.4 points and 7.7 rebounds for with Team Scan at the recent Peach Jam showcase, but Zagsblog said the big man will sit out the remainder of July to rest and rehab his back.
Stone announcing early
The No. 6 senior in the nation, 6-10 center Diamond Stone, hasn’t picked which school to attend, but has decided to announce his choice on Nov. 12, the first day of the NCAA early signing period, according to a report from Evan Daniels for Scout.com.
Stone, from Milwaukee, is said to be considering Wisconsin, Kentucky, Connecticut, Duke, UCLA, Kansas and others.
Reportedly, No. 2 recruit Malik Newman, a 6-3 guard out of Jackson, Mississippi, and Stone have talked about signing with the same program. KU and UConn are considered possible destinations for the combo.
