The national recruiting services have updated their class of 2017 basketball recruiting rankings today. Here’s where each of Kansas’ 2017 commits ranks.
247Sports creates a ‘composite’ ranking, using its own rankings along with ESPN, Rivals, and Scout. Those were updated for the class of 2017 today. Here is how the rankings shook out for both of the players joining the Kansas Jayhawks next season:
Five-star PF Billy Preston (Mouth of Wilson, VA):
Four-star CG Marcus Garrett (Dallas, TX):
Kansas doesn’t have a big class coming in, but both players are blue-chip prospects among the best at their position in the country. Head coach Bill Self still has time to add some more recruits to the class as well, as some of the top prospects are still uncommitted. As things currently stand, KU’s class is ranked No. 5 in the Big 12 and No. 30 in the nation.
