While the Kansas Jayhawks prepare for next season, Bill Self and his coaching staff have been busy building the future.
The team received a major win on Tuesday night when the No. 9 point guard recruit in the 2019 class announced his commitment.
Dajuan Harris, a four-star recruit from Rock Bridge High School, announced his commitment to Kansas in a statement made to 247Sports.
“The reasons why I’m committing to the University of Kansas is to play for a Hall of Fame coach and the best coach in the country. Coach [Jerrance] Howard is the best recruiter in the country and made me feel wanted and let me know he got my back, and I want to win a National Championship.”
Harris took to Twitter later Tuesday night for his own announcement.

Harris received an offer from Kansas just a week ago. He didn’t take long to accept the offer from Bill Self and company.
Why Kansas? Harris says it’s all about making it to the NBA.
“How they develop their guards. They make it to the league.”
Harris is the No. 9 point guard recruit in the 2019 class. He considered reclassifying to the 2020 class, but after receiving an offer from Kansas, Harris plans to sign with the Jayhawks in 2019.
