Recruiting - Hoops

Well, evidently the Jackets are now out of the Kevin Rogers sweepstakes. I have no info. as to why but insiders has a story posted indicating such. So let's recap the week in recruiting:

Wow, let's re-cap our week

1. Adrian Thomas, a seeming GT lock, misses his official visit due to the hurricane and commits to Miami out of the blue.

2. Casaan Breeden, who had GT on his list all along, gets dropped by GT (or mutual - not clear). Finally realized he wanted to be out of Dickey's shadow???

3. Chris Douglas-Roberts gets dropped by GT. Academics??? Not a clear answer yet.

4. Kevin Rogers is dropped by GT.

5. De'Andre Bell keeps getting stronger as a GT commit since O.Spann committed to GTown.

6. A.Jackson narrows his list down to GT / Illinois. But this baseball thing really bothers me. And nobody has provided a clear answer on the scholarship issue (will he be a walk-on or use a 'ship).

7. CJ Miles has an in-home with Hewitt cancelled over family issues, then has his official visit cancelled due to the Hurricane. Hewitt gets his in-home and seems to have held off Kansas at least until an official visit Oct 9.

8. Brandon Costner commits to NCST, disappointing Jacket fans, because it could have been the final nail in the coffin for Kansas getting Miles.

9. McGowan pulls Arkansas out of the blue and everyone thinks they are the front-runner all-of-the-sudden. But now Miss.St. seems to be the hot one again.

10. A new name gets added - Luc Mbahamoute

So what does it mean????? Maybe there are some commits on the board that are silent. Maybe there are some players looking stronger at GT that we are not aware of. Maybe Coach didn't like the comments of Rogers about being a "one-and-done" guy (doubtful though). Unfortunately there are a lot of maybes and as usual, we will just have to be patient and wait out the process.
