Kansas court-side for top 2019 target this weekend
The Kansas staff hasn't missed many games that Jeremiah Robinson-Earl has played this spring and summer, and this weekend wasn't any different.
Kansas assistant coach Norm Roberts was court-side for Robinson-Earl's games Thursday evening and Friday morning. On Saturday, Kansas coach Bill Self was court-side for both of Robinson-Earl's games. On Sunday both Self and Roberts were on hand for all three of Robinson-Earl's games. The Kansas staff has made it very clear that the 'JRE' is a top recruiting target for them in 2019.
Other coaches from schools around the country also made their way to Overland Park this weekend. Villanova, Missouri, UCLA, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Notre Dame and others had assistant coaches from their respective staffs on hand throughout the weekend. Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey was on hand for a few of JRE's games, as was former Kansas great Danny Manning, representing Wake Forest. North Carolina coach Roy Williams was on hand for one game Saturday afternoon.
For those in attendance JRE didn't disappoint. Despite feeling a little under the weather, JRE once again dominated throughout the weekend in leading his team to the championship game on Sunday afternoon.
The Kansas staff also spent time watching a number of other recruiting prospects throughout the weekend, including Class of 2019 SG Zach Harvey, 2019 G Caleb Grill, 2020 PG Ty Berry, 2020 PG Bryce Thompson and 2022 soon to be freshman Mark Mitchell.
