Arizona prep to visit KU

Kansas University basketball recruiting.

Kansas University basketball recruiting.


Mitch Lightfoot, a 6-foot-7, 200-pound senior forward from Gilbert (Ariz.) Christian High who is ranked No. 140 in the basketball recruiting Class of 2016 by, will visit Kansas University Sept. 11-13, reported Wednesday.

Lightfoot, who at one point was committed to University of New Mexico, now is considering KU, Arizona, Stanford, Cal, Utah and others.

“I want to go somewhere they are going to challenge me to be better,” Lightfoot told “I want to go somewhere I am going to have to work for what I get. I don’t want to go to a place where it is going to be handed to me. I don’t like that. I like things are hard to get and I like things that are challenges.”

Terrance Ferguson, a 6-6 senior guard from Dallas, told he will visit KU for the Oct. 9 Late Night in the Phog. He’s ranked No. 11 in the recruiting class of 2016.

Ferguson to Late Night seems too good to be true... sure hope to see him in the Crimson and Blue

Nonsense. Ferguson's been doing Late Night for years now. Wonder if he'd consider doing stand up at half time?

I thought ferguson was winding down his recruitment and was going to decide and it would be in the next month sounds like it won't happen till at least after late nite

Ya Terrance has been to KU multiple times, but will make for pretty big gathering with Ferguson , Porter & Young late night has always been a big recruiting tool lets hope it continues.

Yeah, from the little that I saw on YouTube, he's got good footwork, some useful moves on the block, decent athleticism and good form on his shot. At absolute worst, he'd be a fantastic player to have in practice, and he could turn out to be a pretty good contributor.
