3.) Get there early!

If you aren’t there early, chances are you won’t be able to get a seat. Last year, students started camping at 2 a.m. the morning before. Granted, I don’t expect Late Night to draw as big of a crowd as last season (thanks to Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid), but it’s Kansas basketball and people are going to show up. Don’t bank on the fact that the Royals game and Fall Break are going on that day too. The die hards of Kansas basketball are going to show up. Doors open at 3 p.m. per KUAthletics.

2.) Several highly touted recruits will be in the building.

Late Night always draws the attention of high school recruits, but on Friday there will be a larger group of them than normal. These are the list of recruits who are rumored to be attending Late Night.

Jaylen Brown (small forward), the current No. 2 recruit, from Marietta, Ga. will make the trip up here. He has offers from basically everyone, so him coming to campus is a huge bonus.

Stephen Zimmerman (center), the current No. 10 recruit, from Las Vegas, Nev. will be in Lawrence for Late Night. He has narrowed his list down to Arizona, Indiana Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, UCLA and UNLV.

Carlton Bragg (power forward), the current No. 18 recruit, from Cleveland, Ohio has narrowed down his choices to Arizona, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky and UCLA.

Brandon Ingram (small forward), the current No. 12 recruit, from Kinston, N.C. is still looking at his in-state power schools of Duke and North Carolina, but to get him to Kansas is a good sign.

Tyler Dorsey (shooting guard), the current No. 33 recruit, from Pasadena, Calif committed to Arizona back in June, but withdrew his commitment and is now looking elsewhere.

There are a total of sixteen recruits that are rumored to be attending.

1.) Late Night will be televised this year.

Yep. That’s right. If you want to stay at home and watch the Royals game and Late Night at the same time you can do that. Late Night will be broadcast on the Jayhawk TV Network and will be available for streaming on ESPN3.
