KU Nabs Two
The Kansas frontcourt just got a little deeper. Iowa Western junior college big man Jeff Graves and El Cajon (CA) Christian power forward Moulaye Niang committed to the Jayhawks on Monday, according to the Lawrence Journal World.
Louisville, Illinois, Iowa State, Missouri and Florida State heavily recruited Graves, ranked the No. 4 junior college center in the country by FutureStars. Last year at Iowa Western, he averaged 12 points and 10 rebounds.
While Graves will be a junior next season and become an immediate part of the rotation, Niang is more of a long-term guy. He has work to do in the weight room and needs to increase both his size and strength. The native of Senegal participated in the 2001 Nike All-American Camp.
