Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks inked another dynamic swingman Friday in five-star small forward Wayne Selden.
Selden currently attends the Tilton School in Tilton, N.H. He reclassified from 2014 to 2013 earlier this year. Last year Selden averaged 16 points, five assists and three rebounds and helped lead Tilton to a 25-6 record and the NEPSAC Class AA title game. Selden has also had success on the club circuit where he plays for Boston Amateur Basketball Club.
“Wayne is one of the most powerful wings in high school basketball,” Self said in a media release. “He’s got a great frame. He’s explosive. He can play the two or three and maybe even play some emergency point. He’s big enough to post and defend the four if we decide to go small and he can make shots.”
He verbally committed to playing for the Jayhawks after his visit during Late Night in the Phog in October and chose Kansas over Syracuse, Florida, UCLA and Missouri.
