Well, considering my pithy rebuke of Brandon Rush's judgment a few months back, it will be difficult to take an 'I told you so' tone regarding this recruitment. I suppose it could be one of these strategic 'name-drop' recruitments wherein we allow a visit simply to get our name out in the papers next to the name of a top recruit, but it could also be a little more than that.
"I know he wants to visit Kansas, and I'm planning to go with him," Glenda Rush said. "I don't know what day we're going, but it has to be this week. Brandon needs to decide on a school and sign a letter of intent. He's running out of time."
Classes at Kansas begin on Aug. 18. A 6-foot-6 small forward, Rush would be eligible to play for the Jayhawks immediately assuming the NCAA Clearinghouse approves him for a scholarship.
Antonio Fozard, Rush's coach at Mount Zion, said Rush has met the academic requirements necessary to be eligible at a Division I school.
Many, myself included, didn't believe he was eligible academically. An interesting turn of events.
