What school has the most left to do in late signing period

The early signing period ran from November 11th through the 18th. Who has the most work to do in the late signing period? Scout's basketball recruiting team takes a look.

What team has the most work left to do in the late signing period?

Evan Daniels: Kansas appears to be the clear choice for me, as they have just one commitment in the 2016 recruiting class. Although Mitch Lightfoot is a fine player, the Jayhawks need more in this class. With that said, they still have plenty of opportunity to sign a very good class. They are in the mix with five-star prospects Josh Jackson, Marques Bolden and Jarrett Allen, plus top 40 recruits Andrew Jones and Udoka Azubuike. If the Jayhawks are able to add two of these guys, their class would make a big move in Scout's 2016 top 25 rankings and they'd certainly be happy with their class. 

Josh Gershon: Kansas is the program with the most recent recruiting success that wasn't able to parlay that into a big class in the fall. Mitch Lightfoot could be a good role player for KU, but the Jayhawks are lacking the star power we've come to expect from a traditionally very good recruiting staff. The good news for KU is that with players such as Josh Jackson, Andrew Jones, Taurean Thompson, Marques Bolden and Udoka Azubuike still on the board, Kansas still has time and options.

Brian Snow: In my mind there is no doubt that Kansas has the most work to do. The Jayhawks had a huge visit weekend for their Midnight Madness festivities, but they never seemed to be the leader for any of those elite kids, and only pulled in a solid role player in Mitch Lightfoot. To stay at the top of college basketball the Jayhawks will need to land some big time kids late or else the roster won't be up to usual standards next season.
