Galindo Headed To The Big 12

Alex Galindo is a Jayhawk. On Monday afternoon, spoke with the recent KU commitment.

St. Benedict's Gray Bee wing man Alex Galindo (No. 45, is headed to Kansas next season. On Monday afternoon, Galindo made the calls and announced to various media outlets that he's heading to Kansas.

"I think they got it done because I have a chance to play and stuff like that," Galindo said. "I believe that. I have a chance because of my versatility and I think they need that. They didn't promise anything and I didn't want nobody to promise anything. Going there is a challenge and they'll recruit the best every year and I want to take that challenge."

The 6-7 Galindo selected Kansas after visiting Georgetown, Rutgers and Pittsburgh. He had signed last fall with UTEP but once Coach Billy Gillispie left the program, Galindo was released from his letter of intent.

"I knew it was the spot for me to be able to come down there and play for the University of Kansas. The people love you and that's what impressed me a lot the most."

Last season, Galindo averaged 18 points a game on a loaded team. He also fought through a pre-season knee injury and a mid-season bout of turf toe.
