Four-star forward no longer visiting KU for Late Night

You can cross one top prospect off of the Late Night guest list for Friday night.

Class of 2020 power forward JT Thor, who had reclassified back into his original 2020 class after a brief move to 2021, is no longer making the trip, according to's Corey Evans.

Thor, a 6-foot-8, 190-pound athletic big man from Norcross, Ga., trimmed his list to a final five of Kansas, Georgia, Oklahoma State, UCLA and Kentucky about a month ago and already has made official visits to Georgia and Oklahoma State.

There has been no word yet on whether Thor has removed Kansas from his list of finalist or simply plans to reschedule his visit for a later time. What we do know, though, is he won't be there on Friday night.

While the absence of a Top 50-type player like Thor will always be noticed at any recruiting event by any program, it hardly means KU will be struggling to find prospects to entertain.

More than a dozen other top talents from the 2020, 2021 and 2022 classes — including KU commitment Tre White in the Class of 2022 and top target Bryce Thompson from 2020 — are still scheduled to attend Late Night, which will be headlined by Snoop Dogg and, of course, will feature the first full look at the 2019-20 Jayhawks, who will enter the season ranked among the top two or three teams in the country.

Cant say I'm not expecting any top players to visit much less sign until the FBI fiasco is done

The FBI “fiasco” is done for KU. Now we get to go through the whole ncaa chaos, which the federal government pretty definitively indicated was chaos beyond what they wanted any part of or was legally appropriate.

the "scandal" hurt us last year in recruiting and is hurting us this year and will hurt us for several more years I am afraid.

I think Matt is saying that Thor is a Top 50 recruit and his absence will be noticed. However, per Matt Scott's article, there will five 5-Star recruits and eight 4-Star recruits in attendance.

Well he hasn't responded so I think there won't be any.

Our bagman game has been significantly compromised.
