Due to the COVID-19 pandemic delaying travel for recruiting inevitably, Westlake (Austin, Texas) forward K.J. Adams had to pick his school sight unseen. On Friday, he picked Kansas over Baylor, Georgetown, Arkansas, Texas, Iowa, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and others.
Still, when Adams informed Self of his decision, Self initially thought it was all too good to be true.
Last season, Adams averaged 22.6 points a game while shooting 61.3 percent from the field to go along with 6.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Adams led the Chaps to a 33-2 record.
Adams joins Sunrise Christian School (Bel Aire, Kan.) forward Zach Clemence to form the Jayhawks’ 2021 haul this far.
