From the LJW
(Web posted Thursday at 3:07 p.m.) Kansas freshman Alex Galindo is considering a possible transfer, KU Coach Bill Self said from the Final Four today in St. Louis. "I think it's up in the air," Self told Kansas City 's 810 AM Radio. "There's a chance in his thinking he'd like to get closer to home. " Reached by the Journal-World, Galindo confirmed pondering a possible transfer, but said nothing was finalized. "I need to talk to coach again when he gets back from the Final Four," Galindo said. "I really don't know. There's still a lot of stuff to think about and talk about in our next meeting." Galindo stressed there had been no final decision made and nothing to be decided until he meets with Self again.
It sounds to me like there's no animosity here, just that it might be the best move for Alex. If so, I wish him the best of luck. It also sounds as if he's been forthright with Self, which is much appreciated. Perhaps this is why DeAndre Thomas was visiting.
By the way, DeAndre Thomas isn't 'ranked' in many of the gurus' rankings, but he just won Chicago Public League POY, which means he's a good, and probably very tough player. He's 270 and 6'6", which makes him a pretty solid player too. We'll see what happens but I wouldn't be surprised to see Self add another recruit to this class if Alex chooses to leave.
