Kansas University basketball recruiting

A shooting guard in the Class of 2018, Christian Braun gave Kansas basketball coach Bill Self his verbal commitment on Sunday night during his in-home visit with the KU staff.

The 6-foot-5 Braun chose KU over Kansas State, Illinois, Minnesota and a host of other schools that turned up their recruitment of Braun after his impressive spring and summer with MOKAN Elite on the Nike EYBL circuit.

Braun will now shift his focus to his senior year at Blue Valley Northwest, where he looks to help his Northwest team to back to back state titles.

Welcome to Kansas, Christian! Always good to get homegrown guys to don the crimson and blue!

And a player who could impact the program for 3-5 years. I really like his blend of skills. A veritable three-pt threat, handles the ball well in transition and as a slasher from the perimeter. Creative with the ball as a passer and scorer. Passes ahead well in transition. Reminds me a lot of young Svi in his highlight videos, not so much in style or form, but in the array of skills and potential for versatility.

You gotta like local talent! I saw this kid in the state semi-finals and finals last year. He stood out because he was so tall but had exceptional ball handling and shooting skills. It seemed he really could do anything he wanted but his team was so good he didn't need to. They won, easily, in case you're wondering. He looks to come from a great, supportive family (you'll know who they are in the stands). So it's nice to see a young man recognizing those that help and encourage him. Speaking of, welcome Christian to your new Jayhawk family. We'll be with you the rest of your life.

Its nice to get 1 on the board with Jacobs not coming . I notice there is always inconsistent numbers on his measurables One source had him as a 6' 4 small forward ….One had him as a 6' 7 " shooting guard and now he is 6' 5'" but none the less its good to get someone on the board

For a sec, he reminds me of our floor burnin general, mr. Haase. But I think Braun has a higher ceiling. He can take the ball anywhere he likes. I hope he'll stick around for at least 2-3 seasons. A great addition to Jayhawk family..!! Welcome Christian!!

"if he keeps growing and reaches the 6-foot-8 height ..."

I'd "settle" for a Gordon Hayward type player any day. Fingers crossed.
