Darrell Arthur may be getting close . . . or he may wait until Spring. Distance from home doesn't matter . . . or he'll never leave Texas. IU and KU are working hard and leading the pack . . . or he is still wide open wtih Texas, Baylor and SMU in the mix. No one seems to know what will happen - with LOI day (actually it's a week) looming. Make no mistake about it - DARRELL, WE WANT YOU!
We are, however, pursuing Davon Jefferson, an amazing 2006 PF prospect. He's the #4 rated PF in the 2006 class (Arthur is #2). Originally a UNLV commit, he plays for Chris Chaney at The Patterson School this year. Chaney is an excellent coach with a track record of developing talented players.
So what do you think, KU faithful. If Arthur doesn't commit to KU during the early signing period, what should we do?
A) Hold the scholarship and wait for Arthur. He's worth it! If he eventually goes elsewhere, we can use the scholarship in 2007.
B) Offer the scholarship to Davon Jefferson.
C) Offer the scholarship to Kansas product Tyrel Reed (see discussion below).
D) Offer the scholarship to another prospect (you don't have to give the specifics in your comment, but it might spark some fun discussion)
E) Hold the scholarship for the DEEP 2007 class (again, you don't have to tell us who you think we should target in 2007, but it might lead to some fun chats)
On another topic, how about Kansas 2007 prospect Tyrel Reed? Is this kid amazing or what? He has gone from relative obscurity to prominence in just a few months. He plays for KC Pump-N-Run and is now rated as the #15 PG prospect in America by Scout.com. He goes to high school in Burlington, Kansas, which is not exactly a basketball mecca or powerhouse. Nevertheless, schools like KU, UNC, and Stanford have all watched him work out. There are lots of other schools showing interest. He's tall for his position at 6'3", having grown more than an inch in the past year. Reed has atended several KU games, was one of the recruits at Late Night this year, and was spotted playing pickup games with KU players over the summer. If you've seen Reed play, we'd like to read your impressions.
