Kansas with two big Wednesday visits

The Kansas Jayhawks coaching staff will travel across the country Wednesday, to conduct in-home visit with a pair of top-flight Class of 2012 prospects - Charlottesville (VA) The Miller School wing Andrew White, and Las Vegas Bishop Gorman small forward Shabazz Muhammad.

The 6-foot-6, 180-pound White received an official offer from Kansas in late August, and since then Head Coach Bill Self and his staff have worked hard to bring the Jayhawks into serious contention - along with Louisville and Texas.

"Coach Self has been a real good personal recruiter, he's really excited about me," White told Mike Hughes of TheVille.com in a recent interview. "I've had a real good relationship with Coach (Joe) Dooley, who is the associate head (coach) there. It's one of those opportunities where I'm going to go there and see what they have to offer. They're a real good program and I'm sure I'll be able to learn from seeing them workout. I'm interested in that school and I want to go out there and see if I have an opportunity to play."

The Jayhawks will stop by The Miller School Wednesday to meet with him, and have the chance to watch him work out in person. While has an official visit scheduled to Kansas for Sept. 24, the weekend of Legends of the Phog.

As for the enigmatic Muhammad, Scout.com's No. 1-ranked player in the Class of 2012, Kansas' in-home marks the end of the process. The athletic wing has already conducted in-home visits with UCLA, UNLV, Duke and Kentucky, which means the Jayhawks get the last crack.

At this point in time, no official visit to Lawrence, Kan. has been set by Muhammad.
