Kansas basketball is pushing some interest towards 6-foot-9 Sunrise center Cameron Corhen. The Jayhawks made an official offer on June 9th, continuing their construction of the 2022 recruiting class.
Corhen has existing offers from strong names such as USC, Arizona, Florida State, as well as Big 12 neighbors Oklahoma and Texas Tech. With an impressive level of skill, there’s room for him to grow into a competitive player, making him an attractive recruit for schools to build upon.
Making a name for himself during his junior season, Corhen has attracted interest from multiple programs and has visits scheduled for June.
In the case of the Jayhawks, Corhen isn’t the only center on their radar. Kansas has also extended an offer to California-native Yohan Traore, who is also being pursued by similar schools.
Looking through Corhen’s highlights, it’s no surprise that 247 Sports recruiting analyst Brandon Jenkins’ scouting report points out his “combination of size and skill”, making him a reliable, go-to bucket.
Corhen brings skilled athleticism to the table, which allows him to be effective even from the three-point line. However, it seems he’ll need to improve his strength to take full advantage of his potential at the next level.
While he’ll continue to develop into a robust player, his size should serve him well. Growing into his height will be something schools pay attention to, and the right growth during his senior year will sustain the interest he’s seeing right now.
Kansas head coach Bill Self has quite a few prospects on his list, Corhen being one of the latest to emerge. A full list of his prospects shows the concern for support inside, which may come from his future 2022 class.
