MORE KANSAS: JayhawkSlant.com
Monday night, Kansas suffered a tough loss to Davidson in their home away from home, the Sprint Center in Kansas City. Tuesday morning, some good news on the recruiting trail helped to lessen the sting.
Bill Self and his staff got a call from 2013's Brannen Greene informing them that he was making a commitment.
A 6-foot-7 wing with deep range, the product of Forsyth (Ga.) Mary Persons also spread confirmed the news with Rivals.com.
"I chose Kansas because I felt I could thrive on and off the court," Greene told Rivals.com. "It was the perfect environment for me."
Currently ranked No. 35 nationally in the class of 2013, the four-star wing brings several things to the table.
Not only does he possess terrific size for the wing, Greene is one of the premier jump shooters in the junior class. Additionally his frame allows him to post up, finish in traffic and rebound at a high level from the wing.
"Coach Self says he sees me as a versatile scorer for him," said Greene. "He wants me to put the ball in the hole and sees me playing all three perimeter positions."
Shooting has been an area that the Jayhawks have been looking to address and they've certainly done that recently. With Greene and recent 2012 addition Andrew White, the Jayhawks now have two big shooters on the wing that they'll be able to pair with a high level athlete like Ben McLemore who will be a sophomore when Greene arrives.
Greene joins a recruiting class that already includes the No. 51 player in 2013, Conner Frankamp. A homegrown guard from Kansas, Frankamp is also known as one of the nation's top shooters.
