Kansas’ Class of 2019 got a nice little boost on Tuesday with the addition of four-star point guard Dajuan Harris. That boost to Bill Self’s roster for the 2019-20 season also came with a change in their overall ranking.
In the wake of Harris’ commitment to Kansas, 247Sports has moved the Jayhawks’ overall ranking to No. 15 in the nation – one spot ahead of Big 12 rival Texas Tech. With Harris added to four other incoming freshman and Iowa transfer Isaiah Moss, the Jayhawks are currently the No. 1 team in the conference.
247Sports rates Harris as the No. 101 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 9 point guard in the nation, and the No. 1 prospect from the state of Missouri.
Harris was one of the few remaining top prospects uncommitted for the Class of 2019. He had been committed to Missouri State, but decommitted in April as his profile as a recruit began to rise in a big way.

Kansas is coming off one of the more disappointing campaigns under Bill Self.
The team failed to win either a share of the Big 12 regular season title or the Big 12 Tournament for the first time in over a decade.
Fortunately for Kansas, the team is set to bring back several of their stars from last season including Devon Dotson, Udoka Azubuike, and Silvio De Sousa.
Will the Jayhawks get back to their title-winning ways next season?
