4-star center Gethro Muscadin moves up announcement date to today
KUsports.com on Thursday morning confirmed a report from @endless_motor that 4-star big man Gethro Muscadin had moved his announcement date up from Nov. 1 to noon today.
A 6-foot-10, 215-pound big man from Aspire Academy in Louisville, Ky., Muscadin has been on KU’s list of targets for a long time and made an official visit to Lawrence in late September.
He also has visited Minnesota, Kansas State and, most recently, Texas Tech, which had been thought to be the leader for Muscadin’s services throughout the summer.
Last week, however, Rivals.com recruiting analyst Corey Evans switched his pick from Texas Tech to KU, saying, “I thought for a long time that he was Lubbock-bound but, despite the recent (allegations) cast down upon KU, Muscadin seems to be favoring the Jayhawks. He could visit Louisville one last time before deciding, but momentum is definitely on the side of Kansas.”
Earlier this year, Muscadin delivered a final eight of KU, Minnesota, Texas Tech, Kansas State, UNLV, New Mexico, VCU and UConn.
After not being ranked by Rivals.com for the past couple of years, the rising center jumped into the Top 150 in August, landing at No. 130 and earning a four-star rating.
Asked by RedRaiderSports.com in August to list his strengths, Muscadin said: “I really compete. I like to work hard. I have a lot of skills. I can push the ball down and make some plays. I really try to help my team to win, that’s all I care about. My biggest strengths would be how hard I run (the floor). I can pass it, rebound, block shots, and shoot it, too.”
