5-star wing Liam McNeeley is off the board for Kansas basketball now that he committed to Indiana, but the Jayhawks aren’t done on the recruiting trail.
Hall of Fame head coach Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks currently hold the third-best 2024 recruiting class nationally. It consists of top-rated center Flory Bidunga, top-30 guard Labaron Philon, and top-50 wing Rakease Passmore. But despite that, Kansas basketball is hungry for more.
With Kevin McCullar, Nick Timberlake, and Parker Braun graduating after this season, and potential NBA departures from Elmarko Jackson and Hunter Dickinson, the roster might have a few voids to fill come the offseason. After all, you can only go so far with transfer portal additions.
They have swung and missed on several premier recruits such as Cooper Flagg, Tre Johnson, and most recently Liam McNeeley. At this point in the recruiting cycle, most high schoolers have either made their college decision or cut their final list down narrowly. However, there are still a select few who either do not have enough clarity on their recruitment or are still considering becoming a Jayhawk.
