Buddy Hield Focusing on Four

Kansas shooting guard Buddy Hield (Sunrise Christian Academy) has whistled his list down to four schools and is setting up official visits.

Hield opened many eyes this year with his explosive scoring and sharpshooting ability. As he continues to get stronger and work on his handle, he'll only get better.

After a successful ending to his AAU career, many schools offered Hield a scholarship including big names like DePaul, Memphis, Missouri and Texas A&M to name a few.

His scholarship total is in the double-digits but according to his coach, he's kept true to his word and narrowed it down to four.

Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma all made the cut. He's already taken an official visit to Colorado this past weekend and according to reports, enjoyed it.

He also took an unofficial to Nebraska earlier this month but is going a second time around for an official.

Hield is expected to visit the Sooners this weekend, Nebraska on October 8th and Kansas for Late Night in the Phog.

Perry Ellis commits to KU

Perry Ellis (Wichita Heights, KS) didn't disappoint and opted to commit to Kansas over Kansas State, Kentucky and Wichita State. The 6-8 forward, will be used as a dual forward and even possibly in the backcourt.

Ellis joins Zach Peters in the Jayhawks 2012 class. Nino Jackson and Kaleb Tarczewski are also realistic targets to add to a developing class.
