Andrew Wiggins is one of the Kansas Jayhawks top recruits of all time.

Kansas Basketball: Top Recruits in History


In light of number one recruit Andrew Wiggins arriving on campus this past week, and his commitment to the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team here is a look at more great arrivals in Lawrence.

Danny Manning: The current head coach at Tulsa, Manning posted a stellar time at Page High School before joining the Jayhawks team. He helped lead the team to a 26-0 record and a number two ranking in 1983. While at Kansas, Manning averaged 20 points and eight rebounds. As a senior, he averaged 24 points and nine boards while leading the Jayhawks to a national title.

Wilt Chamberlain: Another guy who was destined for big things from the start, Chamberlain was very dominant. The center posted huge games for Overbrook High School. After averaging 31 points per game as a freshman, Chamberlain continued his dominance. He posted scoring outputs of 71,74,78 and 90 before finishing high school after three seasons. Chamberlain averaged 37 points per game for Overbrook.

Clyde Lovelette: From the 1950′s Lovelette had designs on attending the University of Indiana, instead after racking up huge numbers at a high school in the state, he chose Kansas. Lovelette nearly won a high school title in the state, though finished the deal while with Kansas by winning the 1952 NCAA title.

The Jayhawks kick off their 2013 season on Nov. 8th after two exhibition games vs Louisiana-Monroe.
