2017 PG Collin Sexton to attend KU’s Late Night in the Phog

Collin Sexton, one of the top point guards in the 2017 recruiting class and the No. 12 overall player in the rankings is planning to visit Kansas for Late Night in the Phog the weekend of Oct. 1.

Matt Scott of 247Sports affiliate reported the info Sunday night.

Alabama, Arizona and Florida, along with others, are also vying for Sexton's services and many recruiting analysts believe Alabama is the program to beat for the 6-foot-1, 170-pound, five-star point guard from Mableton, Georgia.

The addition of Sexton to the Late Night visitors list merely adds to what already figured to be a big night for the future of Kansas basketball. Prospects from at least three different classes already are scheduled to attend.

Class of 2017 prospects Marcus Garrett, already a KU commitment, and Troy Brown, a 6-foot-6, five-star guard and the No. 10-ranked player in his class, made their plans to visit earlier this month.

And a few high school sophomores — 6-3 shooting guard Zach Harvey of nearby Hayden High in Topeka, 6-7 forward Jeremiah Robinson from Bishop Miege in Kansas City, and 6-9 forward Matthew Hurt, of Rochester, Minnesota — have been on the guest list for a few weeks, as well.

Another point guard, Class of 2018 prospect Brandon Williams, made his intentions to visit for Late Night known last week.

Sexton would be a huge "get" for KU. His stock has shot through the roof lately as he has really improved in the last year. Our Class of '17 should be an interesting one.

Sexton is a point guard who can score......he scored 39 and 44 in a tournment this summer .....He has been listed as 6 ........6 3 he has a smooth jumper...He and Troy Brown as well as Newman and Vick and Garrett could get crowded.....all can play... minutes could be an issue come conference play....but the only players on that team are Garrett Newman and anyone else is a mention T Brown or Sexton is just on the " maybe" list ....

Agree Benz, if he isn't worried about Newman (although they don't play the exact same position) Sexton will be set to be the next great point guard at Kansas.

I've also seen some shorter guards but after looking at Mason and Collins, they have more than enough ability to play at the college level and perhaps get a shot and wind up being drafted in the early to mid second round.

It already looks as if Graham might be moving up into first round territory. Mock drafts at this point don't matter very much but if more and more players/coaches and talent scouts start to take notice, I can easily see Graham going in the first round.
