Cole Aldrich is the first member of KU's 2007 recruiting class. According to multiple sources, the 6'10" 230 pound junior gave his commitment to Coach Self on Monday. Aldrich chose the Jayhawks over Minnesota and UNC. Aldrich, currently the #8 rated player according to Scout.com, is only the second top-ten 2007 prospect to commit. Aldrich was KU's top 2007 target. This guy is the real deal. KU fans will love watching him play. Even better, he's a good kid off the court and in the class room.
Are KU fans as excited about this commitment as I am? Let me hear from you!
