Chalmers Caps Huge Week For KU

The Kansas Jayhawks capped an already huge recruiting week by committing arguably the top junior point guard in the land. On Friday night, Mario Chalmers picked Kansas over Arizona.

According to sources close to the situation, Mario Chalmers reached a decision Friday night in regard to his future college. At a press conference, Chalmers selected Kansas over Arizona where he'll take over for Aaron Miles in the fall of 2005.

Chalmers, a 6-1 player ranked No. 14 in America by, is a scoring point guard who scored 67 points in his last two games at an event last month in Las Vegas. He'll battle players like Greg Paulus and Chris Douglas-Roberts all summer long for the right to be called the nation's top point guard heading into their senior seasons.

Just this week, Kansas added four players; two seniors and two juniors. The first to commitment was 6-7 small forward Alex Galindo, a senior out of New Jersey. Next up was 6-7 ½ Micah Downs, a junior winger. C.J. Giles, a 6-10 senior center, made his announcement mid-week and finally it was Chalmers that put an exclamation point on a fantastic four-day recruiting binge by the Jayhawks.
