Austin, Texas Thon Maker, a 7-foot senior forward from Athlete Institute in Ontario, Canada, will make an official visit to Kansas University for Saturday’s Iowa State game, Maker’s guardian, Ed Smith, tells zagsblog.com and sny.tv.
Maker is also considering Arizona State, Indiana, St. John’s, UNLV and Notre Dame.
Smith has said Maker may not commit to a school until he’s been cleared academically by the NCAA.
He has said he does not want a similar situation to that of Cheick Diallo, who was not cleared for participation until after the season had started.
