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 Rivals.com'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.
