5-Star Silvio De Sousa Trying To Play For Kansas By December

The top recruit is trying to enroll early.

Kansas could reportedly add a five-star to its roster by early December.

Silvio De Sousa, a five-star power forward in the 2018 class, is committed to the Jayhawks, and he's trying to Lawrence as soon as possible.

The legal guardian of the elite recruit told Gary Bedore that the plan is to have De Sousa enrolled at KU by December.

"I think we are heading in that direction," he said.

De Sousa, a 6-foot-9 power forward out of IMG Academy in Florida, is one of the top recruits in the country for 2018. He'd be a major addition to a Kansas team that has serious Final Four aspirations.

The Jayhawks begin their season on Friday against Tennessee State.
