247Sports Brian Snow offered this evaluation of Braun s game.

A good athlete on the wing with solid length and versatility. Has improved greatly throughout his high school career. He is at his best as a shot maker from deep. Given his length and athleticism https://www.kansasjayhawksshop.com/udoka-azubuike-jersey-c-14.html, his ability to shoot makes him dangerous on the wing when surrounded by drivers. Braun can also attack a closeout, and is getting better at finishing through contact. While he might not start right away, Braun should develop into a quality contributor in college.

Recently, Braun talked about the prospects of playing under coach Bill Self.

Self had this to say about Moss

Isaiah was a very good player on a very good team at the University of Iowa, Self said in a release. He s played in big games. He s certainly used to the physicality of our sport after playing in the Big Ten and has been very well coached and drilled. He also played at a top high school program at Simeon in Chicago. I m very excited about him and the opportunities that he will give us to stretch the floor and certainly play with a couple really good big guys.

247Sports Evan Daniels offered this evaluation of Wilson s game

A big perimeter prospect that possesses shooting ability and skill. At 6 8, he has very good size for the position and he s a good athlete. He has a solid build and one that would fill out further in a college weight room. He already plays well through contact. Shooting is among his biggest strengths. He has good shot mechanics Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk Jersey, shot preparation and good range. He s also a good passer. Areas for improvement include creating space for pull ups and ball handling. Wilson has the chance to be a first round draft pick with development.

Here are a number of stories from Wilson s commitment


Tristan Enaruna committed to KU back in May and has since joined the rest of the squad in Lawrence. Enaruna is a four star recruit and is the No. 61 ranked player in the class of 2019.

Self had this to say about Enaruna after he signed with KU

We have been recruiting Tristan the entire year and have always been impressed with his IQ, skillset and tremendous athletic ability, Self said in a relase. At 17 years old, he is young for his class but his versatility is one of a guard. ... We feel like Tristan s ceiling is one that he could be one of the most complete offensive players that we ve had here at Kansas over the last several years.

Michael Jankovich joins the Jayhawks as a walk on. Jankovich is the son of former KU basketball assistant coach and current SMU head coach Tim Jankovich.

Here are some of Jankovich’s highlights from the Adidas circuit. He made one 3 point shot in KU basketball s first camp scrimmage and Self even said before the event that he might be the best shooter in the gym. Jankovich is joining the team as a walk on during the same offseason that former walk on Garrett Luinstra, from Lawrence Free State, was reported by 247Sports to have been departing. Luinstra has entered the transfer portal and is not expected back.

Issac McBride signed with KU back in November and is now on campus for the summer.

McBride is a three star recruit and is the No. 22 ranked combo guard in the class of 2019.

247Sports Brian Snow offered this evaluation of McBride s game

A player who can really shoot the ball, McBride is going to be asked to stretch the defense and can really score it off the catch and off the bounce. While he isn’t a true point guard, McBride is able to run the team at times, and shows a solid feel for the game. Still what the 6 foot 1 combo guard does best is make shots, and play with energy. A solid athlete https://www.kansasjayhawksshop.com/mitch-lightfoot-jersey-c-15.html, he should bring some offensive punch to the court right away, and develop into a quality player during his time in college.
