One of the last remaining uncommitted top 50 prospects, Jalen Wilson recently narrowed down his list to three. On Wednesday, he announced his commitment decision: He's joining an NCAA blue blood.

Wilson revealed that he would be committing to Kansas. He had recently visited Kansas and UNC, with Oklahoma State also in the mix to land him.

247Sports rates Wilson as a four-star prospect and the No. 50 player in the country. He is the No. 13 small forward in the country, and the No. 8 prospect from the state of Texas.

Back in May, he de-committed from Michigan following the departure of head coach John Beilein, who took up the head coaching job for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Over his past three years of high school, Wilson has averaged 15.8 points per game, 6.5 rebounds per game, and 3.1 assists per game.

It's certainly good news for Kansas, who recently missed out on five-star RJ Hampton, who publicly turned down the Jayhawks to go pro with the New Zealand Breakers.

With the addition of Wilson, Kansas' Class of 2019 now includes five incoming freshman, as well as grad transfer Isaiah Moss, who is set to join them from Iowa.

That along with the return of several key players should make the Jayhawks one of the top teams in the country next season.
