Big recruiting weekend in store for Kansas

On Tuesday, Kansas Head Coach Bill Self described tonight's "Late Night in the Phog" as perhaps the biggest iteration of the annual event during his tenure. A quick glance at the list of more than a dozen top high school prospects scheduled to attend reveals why.

Per NCAA rules, coaches are not allowed to comment on specific recruits until they have officially signed their National Letter of Intent.

Reporters – and most fans – know and understand this guideline. So when Kansas Head Coach Bill Self was asked a question about the importance of Late Night in the Phog as a recruiting tool during this week's pre-season Media Day event, it was couched in broad, general terms.

Even so, Self's response was automatic.

"It's big," he said. "It's probably the biggest one we've had. It's an important weekend for us."

Late Night has always been one of the most potent weapons in Kansas' recruiting arsenal, but a quick glance at the list of visitors speaks to the truth of Self's words.

When the doors open at 7:30 p.m., some of the top recruits in the country, ranging from the classes of 2011 to 2014, will be in attendance. They include:

Class of 2011
