Recruiting: Kansas Jayhwaks and Milton Doyle


Per Adam Zagoria, Milton Doyle going to the Kansas Jayhawks is “basically done”. This comes from a source that told SportsNet New York this and said that Doyle has “freak athleticism”. The 6’4″, 185 pound recruit has reportedly been offered by Kansas, and Doyle is a fan of the team

 

The former Florida International commit took a visit to Lawrence, Kansas yesterday, and the former unknown to Jayhawks fans should be on his way to playing for the powerhouse.

The 2012 shooting guard once said, “FIU in 2012″, but he has since changed his mind. Milton Doyle is a small forward from Chicago, Illinois, but their isn’t much on him at this point.

Doyle received interest from Bradley, Colorado State, and Nebraska, but the only offer he received came from FIU.

The Jayhawks could get Damontre Harris, Anrio Adams, and Milton Doyle, but they only have two scholarships. Some say that the Doyle offer is in case of Anrio Adams’s test scores, which would be interesting. This whole thing has brought up an interesting scenario for KU.

The underrated Chicago SG/SF would end up being in a crowded wing rotation on the Jayhawks with Travis Releford, Ben McLemore, and Andrew White on the wings. He has progressed nicely, but Doyle does bring up these interesting problems for the Jayhawks.

What do you guys think about the heavy interest from both sides? What are your thoughts on Milton Doyle as a player and have you been hearing the rumors that Kansas has offered him?

Check out some highlights from Milton Doyle here.

I doubt the Jayhawks have offered, unless if they really don’t think that Anrio Adams will qualify. It does seem like Doyle is insurance for Adams, because Adams and Harris are the two guys who will be getting the scholarships. Apparently, though, none of this has anything to do with Adams, so it either has to do with Harris or nothing at all. Some see Doyle as a walk-on player due to a lack of interest, but watch the video and you’ll see that he’s pretty good.

If he is offered, Doyle will almost certainly accept, given that his other choices come nowhere near the caliber of a school that Kansas is. So really, it looks like Bill Self and the staff have legitimate interest in the Chicago recruit and could add yet another player to their top 25 recruiting class.
