5-star Class of 2022 KU commitment Tre White reopens recruitment, remains interested in Kansas
Class of 2022 point guard Tre White, of Cornerstone Christian in San Antonio, announced Friday that he has reopened his recruitment.
White, a 5-star prospect who just started his sophomore season of high school basketball, orally committed to KU last summer and has long been a huge fan of the Kansas program and coaching staff.
According to his recent Tweet, White is opening up his recruitment so he can experience the entire process, from beginning to end, in an effort to find “the college that best fits my academic and basketball needs” and “all the goals I have set in my life.”
Reached via text by the Journal-World on Friday evening, White said he “for sure” would keep Kansas in the mix as he moves through the various stages of his recruitment.
“I love Kansas,” White told the Journal-World this fall. “It’s a dream. My relationship with the coaches is crazy. It really is a family.”
Originally from Little Elm, Texas, White committed to KU without visiting, largely on the strength of his relationship with KU coach Bill Self and assistant coach Jerrance Howard.
Shortly after jumping into the Top 10 in the 247 Sports rankings for the Class of 2022, White visited KU for Late Night in the Phog.
A 6-foot-6, 200-pound point guard with a wide variety of skills, White initially chose KU over offers from Illinois, Texas Tech, Auburn and a dozen other schools showing serious interest.
Despite Friday’s development, his is a name that remains worth tracking both for the KU coaching staff and Kansas fans who follow recruiting.
