Lucas commits to Kansas

After setting plans in motion last week to bring him in for an official visit, Head Coach Bill Self and the coaching staff at the University of Kansas worked quickly to seal the deal with Portland (OR) Westview big man Landen Lucas. Sunday those efforts bore fruit, as the Class of 2012 prospect made his decision public via Twitter.

Lucas joins signee Perry Ellis of Wichita (KS) Heights and commitment Zach Peters of Plano (TX) Prestonwood Christian - who will sign a National Letter of Intent Monday - in the Kansas Class of 2012.

He chose the Jayhawks over a group of finalists that included California, Stanford, Tennessee and Washington.
