Class of 2017 point guard Tremont Waters, the No. 39 ranked player in the class according to Rivals.com, plans to visit Kansas in September.

Waters’ father, Ed, on Sunday told Jordan Wells of TheHoosier.com that he would visit Indiana, Georgetown and Kansas next month.

The four-star point guard averaged 9.7 points, 5.6 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game at the NBPA Camp in mid-June and led his team to the title while winning MVP honors.

Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Eric Bossi, who covered the event, said the 5-foot-11, 160-pound prospect from Connecticut really stood out with the ball in his hands.

“Waters flourished in a role that is more similar to how he'll likely be used in college,” Bossi wrote at the time. “His reputation has been that of a scorer, but on the next level it will be about setting up others first and then mixing in his scoring. He's fearless on drives to the hoop, softens the defense with his jump-shooting and has made big strides as a communicator.”

In addition to the three schools for which he has set up visits, Waters has offers from a dozen other programs, including UConn, Kentucky and Duke.

Provided he takes the three visits he has set up, he only would be allowed to make an official visit to two other programs.

if thats sarcasm Freddie.......how tall is Mason........that worked out pretty well .......Uconn Kentucky Duke gave Waters offers.......thats not quite Emporia State ..Washburn ....or UMKC.....offering him a scollie .....So Waters may be a player.....so i will assume his height reference was sarcasm.....

I didn't take Freddie's comment as sarcasm/negative, but then I was thinking pretty much the same thing truthfully.

“His reputation has been that of a scorer, but on the next level it will be about setting up others first and then mixing in his scoring. He's fearless on drives to the hoop, softens the defense with his jump-shooting and has made big strides as a communicator.”

IMO, that could just as easily be describing Mason as anyone, and as you pointed out, that's worked out pretty well. It sort of sounds like you're looking for a disagreement when in reality you share exactly the same opinion.

Keep the line in the water Coach Self, a lot of players to replace, reel in the ones you can.

Mallory relax and don't be so up tight. It's going to be ok.

Dee i not being uptight or looking for a disagreement....... only Freddie knows what he meant ......my only point was dont discount a players ability because he 5 11 ...Thats my only point....

I agree with Dee...relax. Freddie wasprobably referring to the fact that Bill Self has recruited smaller PGs in the past ie..Mason and Collins. I think Self likes the air of toughness that the smaller PGs have about themselves. Mason and Collins are great leaders and I believe that that is a great attribute to have in a point guard. RCJH

Mallory - The point is that no one was. It's just u making an issue out of something that didn't otherwise exist.

I'm not being sarcastic, if our 5'11" guards are Frank Mason and Sherron Collins, then who in their right mind would honestly complain about that?

Also, Emporia State University is my alma mater, what are you trying to say?! ;-)
