Late Night in the Phog appears the place to be on October 15th where LeBryan Nash and Ben McLemore have both said they will be to take another look at Kansas although neither has committed to the Jayhawks yet. The Jayhawks are also in the market for power forward Mikael Hopkins, who is still considering seven schools, but reportedly expects to commit by November 1st.
IUPUI might be the next to cash in on the latest trend in recruiting–fathers getting their sons to play for them. This past recruiting season, two of the top recruits in the class of 2010 (Ray McCallum and Trey Zeigler) committed to mid-major programs (Detroit and Central Michigan) to play for their fathers despite having offers from bigger name schools. Ron Hunter (most famous for going barefoot to raise money for shoes in Africa) hopes that trend continues as he recruits his son R.J. Hunter despite having offers from schools such as Michigan State and Wake Forest.
