Believe it or not, this is an important time of the year for schools trying to recruit one of the country's top players -- Kris Humphries. This outstanding junior forward is in the process of setting up more unofficial visits. It's likely, based upon these visits, that the final list of schools will be determined by these trips.
"Kris still plans on visiting Arizona on January 19th," said Kris' dad, William Humphries. "He is also considering other schools for unofficial visits."
Those schools include Kansas, Louisville, University of North Carolina and Tennessee. "Kris is still open on where he wants to go to school," Mr. Humphries told us. "But (he) is tiring of the process and will narrow things down before (the) summer."
Kris Humphries is a dream recruit every high major coach would love to have in his program from the Class of 2003. Humphries is a terrific student. He has already achieved a 3.6 GPA. "All we ask of him is to continue to work hard in the classroom," Mr. Humphries said to us previously. "And work hard on the court."
Kris is averaging 28 points and 17 rebounds per contest. Not only does Humphrey make an impact scoring and rebounding the ball, he averages six assists and three steals. He is the complete player.
Humphries, a 6-8, 220 pounder from Hopkins H.S. in Minnetonka, Minn., has also listed Marquette, Kentucky, Iowa State, Texas, Illinois, Maryland, Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan and Michigan State.
