Frankamp injures foot

Going up for a dunk late in a KC Run GMC game this weekend, Conner Frankamp was on the receiving end of a hard foul - and when he landed, he could tell almost immediately that something was up. That something may keep him sidelined the rest of the way this summer, and force the Wichita (KS) North star into a little well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Phog.net spoke with Conner Frankamp on Monday morning about the injury.

Having received an initial diagnosis of 4-8 weeks of time on the sidelines, he plans to visit a family physician this week to get a second opinion.

Unlike most prospect in the country, Frankamp has already locked down his plans for the future with his commitment to Kansas - taking a great deal of the stress out of his potential inability to play during the crucial July evaluation period.

"I feel like it takes a lot of pressure off," he said. "We're just very thankful for me having the scholarship that I want, and I feel like it takes a lot of the stress off."

It's been a summer filled with non-stop basketball for the elite point guard, who recently returned from the FIBA U17 Championship in Kaunas, Lithunia, where he and Team USA took home the gold medal.

Ultra competitive, Frankamp would love to be out on the court, but if he is unable to play the rest of the way this summer, he'll use the time to recharge his batteries and do what he can to keep getting better.

"I'll for sure use the time just to rest and work on my upper body strength as much as I can," he said. "Try to take time to relax and get everything to 100-percent before the high school season."
