Kansas was one of the finalists on Ronnie Brewer's list this fall, but with the recent addition of shooting guard Omar Wilkes to the Jayhawks' nest, the spindly shooting guard from Arkansas isn't exactly sure if he remains a priority for KU.
Brewer, a 6-5, 190 pounder from Fayetteville H.S., spoke with Rivalshoops.com on late Thursday night. He filled us in on where his recruiting process stands in early October.
In fact, Brewer was waiting for a phone call from Kansas Head Coach Roy Williams at the time of our conversation. He is slated to visit KU for their "Late Night with Roy Williams" festivities next weekend, Oct. 11-13.
"I am just awaiting word from Coach Williams at this point," Brewer said. "He told me I was one of his main focus points, but obviously since they signed three guards already and are likely to sign two posts, they probably don't have a scholarship for me."
"Unless I hear otherwise about the other scholarship, and I am pretty sure it is going to go to post player, I am still scheduled to visit there," Brewer continued. "But it could be subject to change at a moment's notice."
Wilkes was the third perimeter player to commit to the Jayhawks this year. Back in the spring, Kansas accepted commitments from Oklahoma natives J.R. Giddens and Jeremy Case.
If KU remains in the picture for Brewer, he will visit Lawrence, Kan., next weekend as planned. If not, then he will have some shuffling to do with his visit plans.
Ronnie said he could decide to swing by hometown Arkansas for its midnight madness celebration next weekend if he doesn't trip to Kansas. He is locked in to visiting Oklahoma from Oct. 18-20.
Brewer is planning to take visits the following two weekends of Oct. 26 and Nov. 2, and he said they could be to any one of three schools -- Arkansas, Oklahoma State or UConn. And those three schools could also be penciled in for next weekend should the Kansas visit not materialize.
Brewer's in-home visit schedule went as follows: Arkansas (Sept. 9), Oklahoma State (Sept. 10), Ole Miss (Sept. 11), Kansas (Sept. 15), Oklahoma (Sept. 16) and UConn (Oct. 2). Of those schools, only Ole Miss appears to be on the outside looking in, although he has visited that SEC school unofficially.
We will stay on top of Brewer's situation, and should anything change regarding his visit plans, we'll let you know via an update. Stay tuned!
