Mitchell Ballock, a sophomore guard from Eudora High, was offered a scholarship by the University of Kansas on Monday.
“I kind of knew it was coming, but I was surprised when it (KU offer) happened,” Ballock told JayhawkSlant.com, who has already picked up offers from Kansas, Creighton and Iowa State.
Ballock, a 6-foot-4 left, led Eudora High to the Class 4A-II state championship in March, averaging 20 points per game last season. He attended Stephen Curry’s camp this summer, which was an invite-only event
Ballock drew a lot of praise at the camp, where he was recognized with the “best shooter” award after winning the three-point shooting contest (shooting from NBA range, by the way).

Obviously Ballock will receive plenty of other offers before he makes his final decision but it appears Kansas is the front runner at this point because of he’s a Kansas prospect.
