Recruit Talk: Zimmerman, Maker and more


It appears Kansas will head into 2014-2015 with just 12 scholarship players after Ray Kasongo will not come to Kansas, as reported this weekend.

It is widely believed that Kasongo is looking for immediate playing time and Kansas didn’t offer that.

Additionally, a player like Christian Garrett will most likely get the remaining scholarship as he finishes his last year at Kansas.

Stephen Zimmerman sets up in-home with Kansas is reporting that Bill Self will visit Stephen Zimmerman for an in-home visit, a 7-foot center from Vegas, on September 15th.

Zimmerman is one of Kansas’ big targets for the 2015 class and will be in attendance at Late Night in the Phog in October.

The 17-year-old is considering Kansas, UCLA, Kentucky, UNLV, North Carolina, Indiana, Louisville and Arizona. UNLV and Arizona are considered the favorites at this time.

Tyler Davis will most likely be at Late Night is reporting that Tyler Davis, a 6-foot-9 forward in the class of 2015, will visit Kansas. The No. 35 recruit in the Class of 2015 is considering Kansas as well at other teams such as Baylor, SMU, Indiana and Arizona.
