Kansas still in the mix for top point guards

At this stage on the recruiting calendar, every action brings a reaction. Here’s an example: In the past seven days, the Kansas Jayhawks' point guard list has been hit with attrition. Junior college stud Chris Jones (Memphis, Tenn./NW Florida State College) and Anthony Barber (Hampton, Va./Hampton) picked Louisville and N.C. State, respectively.

Kansas recruited Demetrius Jackson (Mishawaka, Ind./Marian Catholic) with great diligence and effort in the summer. So did Notre Dame, and the South Bend campus is minutes from Jackson’s home. This weekend is the huge Michigan-Notre Dame football game, and Jackson’s going to be there with two Irish commitments. It wouldn’t be the least bit surprising to see Jackson, not a fan of the recruiting process, pop for Notre Dame. Illinois is also in the mix, but regardless, we’re reading tea leaves here, and so is Kansas.
