Class of 2020 point guard, R.J. Hampton, and his family wrapped up his 48-hour official visit to Kansas shortly after KU's 78-70 win over Baylor Saturday afternoon. According to Hampton's father, Rod, the visit couldn't have gone better for Hampton and his family.
"There are a few basketball programs that you can say this is what college basketball is all about," said Mr. Hampton. "Kansas fits that, and we have a few of those (programs) on our list," he added.
Mr. Hampton added that the visit went well for him and his family from start to finish.
"From start to finish of the visit everything was first class," said Mr. Hampton. "Getting to see the day-to-day workings was impressive. At the end of the day you gotta respect tradition. We could see ourselves as a Jayhawk family. We will see!!!"
The family atmosphere that Coach Self and his staff have developed at Kansas is something that was very noticeable to Hampton and his family.
"Coach Self and his staff handle the guys in such a way that they hold you accountable," said Mr. Hampton. "The family atmosphere makes you want to work hard to better yourself, and make the team better. They do a great job!!!"
Kansas Assistant Jerrance Howard, along with Coach Self, have a done a great job in Hampton's recruitment. Hampton is considered by many to be the top guard in the country. Should the Hamptons decide to become a Jayhawk family there will be a number of top players wanting to join Hampton in Lawrence.
