Turns out that KU never offered Isaiah Moss.

It seems that with Jim Beilein leaving Michigan for the Cleveland Cavaliers talk is that Michigan recruit Jalen Wilson is thinking about asking out of his LOI and may want to join his good friend RJ Hampton, whom just about every recruiting guru is now picking to choose Kansas.

Speculation is that is why KU did not offer Moss. Self intends to land Wilson.

Rumor control out.

From here on out anyone who commits to KU but has not yet signed can always change their mind.

Also today, RJ Hampton's bestie Jalen Wilson (6-8/210 Rivals #47 4* SF) opted to reopen his recruiting with the departure of Jim Beilein for the Cavaliers. Hope KU can land them both!

Yep. As I understand it from the beginning Self & Co have talked with RJ about playing with Dotson, whom they anticipate coming back, and RJ has liked the idea, especially with the success of the FM&DG years to draw on.

Also as I understand it all of the other schools on his list have excellent PGs returning or coming in, so having Dotson return should not be a negative, and arguably would be a positive since he will be one of the top PGs in the nation next year -> more team success -> more opportunities for RJ to shine. (Q had lots of them and failed to deliver, no fault on DD). RJ would be PG when Dotson sits and when they play together he gets to focus on all the other parts of his game, which he should excel at (I just cannot picture him being another “OAD no-show” like Q).

Finally I have seen nothing published in the media recently about RJ having to play the point. I have seen lots of message board talk from fans citing this and that, but nothing they cite is current.

It is of note that at present:

247Sports guru predictions are 75% Kansas and no more than 6% for any other program. 247 big wigs Jerry Meyer and Evan Daniels recently picked KU, as did UK related Chris Fisher.

Rivals FutureCast is also 75% for KU, with nation recruiting big wigs Eric Bossi and Corey Evans leading the pack, which includes Memphis related analyst Isaac Simpson switching to KU from Texas Tech (who brought on ESPN’s #8 grad transfer VaTech SG Chris Clarke after getting TJ Holyfield).

With BFF Wilson reopening his recruiting and TTBOMK no other competition currently having more than 1 ride left for next year, it seems like a match made in hoops heaven for RJ and Jalen to choose KU.

Fingers crossed.

In case this article is not open to non-members, the author talks with Rivals reps from the 4 programs RJ is considering - KU, TT, Memphis and kensucky.

All 4 think KU is the favorite.

The article was published about 2 hours ago.

Fingers crossed.
