The Origin Post for this iteration of KUMBB Recruiting has been updated for the latest 2019 Rivals 150 rankings.

Of note in recent days, KU made the cut as one of the top 9 options for 5* PG Josiah James.

Also, Shay Wildeboor recently opined this as what he thinks KU's 2019 recruiting class might look like.
In addition to already committed 4* PG Markese Jacobs, he specifically mentioned:

#5 Matthew Hurt (PF) as reportedly KU is the team to beat. Doesn't hurt that Hurt recently spent an extended period of time with Bill Self at USA basketball.

#9 Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (PF), son of former KU star Lester Earl. Originally from Bishop Miege (Roeland Park, KS), he will attend the IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL for his senior year. Family is very pro-KU and would love to have him close to home for college. While dad's old coach must still be considered a factor, Shay (and most of the basketball gurus I've read on various sites) feels very good about JRE to KU.

#34 Samuell Williamson (SG). The 6-foot-6, 170-pound guard from Rockwall (TX) High School really likes Self and KU, and both his mother and brother are Jayhawks. Shay believes SW could be the next player to commit to KU.

With Jacobs that adds up to a class of 4.

If you have been reading the updates to the OP, you know I think there will be 5 available scholarships for the AY2019-20 team, so if Shay is right about the above 3, who else might be joining them, hm?

This November's early signing period could be another exciting one!
