Another 5-star prospect is making his way to Lawrence this weekend for an official visit with Kansas basketball. Bryson Tiller is a 6-foot-9, 240-pound power forward from Atlanta, Georgia. He is rated as the No. 8 player in the 2025 recruiting class according to 247 Sports but is a strong candidate to reclassify into the 2024 recruiting class.
A scouting report on Tiller from 247 Sports’ Eric Bossi says: “One of the most polished frontcourt players in the class of 2025, Tiller has great positional size, a strong frame and the type of skill you would want to see in a modern day four man. Capable of operating on the block or facing out to the three-point line, Tiller is a versatile scorer. He’s got broad shoulders, long arms and good functional athleticism in tight spots that he uses to score over and through defenders at the rim.”
Tiller could be the eventual replacement for KJ Adams, whether that’d be for the 2024-2025 or 2025-2026 season. Kansas basketball is looking to get back to recruiting the best of the best in each recruiting cycle after the IARP saga that stretched out over a six-year period.
According to recruiting analysts, Kansas basketball is now linked to a trio of 2025 recruits who are strong candidates to reclassify into 2024. 5-star Joson Sanon and 5-star Darryn Peterson have been linked to the Jayhawks, and Peterson has even gotten a crystal ball to the Jayhawks from On3’s Jamie Shaw. Peterson recently was the first high school athlete to sign an NIL deal with Adidas, which obviously bodes well for Kansas’ chances with him.
Bill Self is looking to finish off what is already a really impressive 2024 recruiting class with more elite recruits. It will be interesting to see which of the trio of 2025 recruits actually reclassify and if Kansas basketball can land any of them to add to what is already a top 10 recruiting class for 2024.
