Is going to be a special player in college. Not Zion like perhaps, but he will be a great player in his own right.

A must have for KU. Every fan of Kansas, should be messaging and pleading with him rn on social media, with heartfelt posts urging him to come here.

If there has been one, great thing Bill Self has done, it has been recruiting kids of African origins to Kansas.

Cheick Diallo, Joel Embiid, Silvio De Sousa, and Udoka Azubuike.

all studs. We need to get this guy! It is a failure by Kansas if we don't. In my humble opinion. I haven't watched much of him, but he would be such a perfect fit on this team if we got him from what I've heard and seen. we have such a good history with small forwards like Jackson, Wiggins.

he has some potential (for the college game) . Lets pray for the best.

I've reflected a lot of what kind of recruits succeed in college. We could tell him we will give him the full reins of the team (see R. Langford, and T. Young). I have reason to believe, that Achiuwa would be extremely impactful for the team winning with his scoring abilities and natural size if he committed to us. I think he would be given a very large role and could handle that responsibility well.

I would rather have a young man who wants to be here over one we wish to be here.

Kentucky is full with 4 top 20 Rival guys..Duke has 4 top 45 Rival guys...even Nova and UNC has a few top 30 recruits a piece...Precious would be wise to come to old KU.

the only positive to bring an American person is there academics, sense of identification and familiarity. you don't have to investigate them so thoroughly unless your D.Rose. I'm talking about you Silvio!

I like the African players better cause they are typically much more manlier and mature then the American players.

I'm not a fan of one and done either. believe me. but he is off the charts good. you don't pass up on that.

the Kelly oubres of the world, the Quentin Grimes, cliffs, selbys, etc. can go f themselves. you got to be selective with your battles. we need to be all in with him.

I'm beginning to worry Selfs quote " were going to bring some guys" is hot air. How can you project such confidence with such a below average class? is it because we have some 5 star guys lined up? I hope it is the later.

I think coach Self meant he will get a guy or two but he will also retain some guys. I am guessing Dotson comes back and maybe Grimes. For the life of me I don’t know why Grimes declared in the first place.

I have soured on one and donee but if you sprinkle them in they can help. It looks like KU has a group of guys that will stick around for a while in Abajie, McCormick, Braun and McBride.

I am almost 95% confident Dotson comes back.

I am fairly confident sds will win his appeal. More confident than not confident.

I think there is a chance grimes comes back. Not counting on it. But I think there is a chance.

To be blunt. American players are sort of soft. See Quentin Grimes. Never hustled back on defense. turned the ball over constantly. Devon constantly turned It over too, see the @ KSU game. Its never good to generalize but somebody coming from Nigeria or Angola, is going to be a bit toughened up by that is all I'm saying.

"by that" sounds more than general. Sounds kinda racist....

Why is that? What makes him a lock to not come back? I don't see what his plan is. It is to not get drafted, and be a free agent. Enabling him to work his way up the ranks in the G league, and once he has proven himself he is a free agent right away? I do not know if that is even possible. If Grimes leaves now he is relegating himself to a lifetime of playing ball in Europe, and there is nothing wrong with that. He will make some decent money doing that.

Just wait and see...if not drafted he will either play Euro ball or transfer. If you couldnt see by hiscbody language for most of the season it was obvious he didn't enjoy KU. Again he won't return...I am willing to bet 200 dollars that he wont....any takers.

Back to Precious, aye. Do we get him or not?
