Chris Douglas-Roberts continues to be a big time Kansas target. Bill Self and Manning visited the point guard at his house in Detroit last week. "The Kansas visit went real well," said Douglas-Roberts. "Coach Self brought Danny Manning with him which made it even more cool. I wasn't expecting Manning, and it was cool to talk with both Coach Self and Manning about Kansas."
CDR indicated that Self told him some potential breaking news regarding KU's assistant coach search. "He's trying to get Danny to come and be the next assistant. I remember he was a real good player at Kansas, and he had a good NBA career as well."
The Jayhawks have been recruiting the Detroit product for quite some time. "Kansas was one of the first really big schools to recruit me. I like that a lot because they saw something in me that nobody else saw early."
However, KU is not the only legitimate program whose going after the point guard. North Carolina State visited CDR on Tuesday night. "They gave a real good presentation, and I enjoyed that one too. What interested me the most was that they said Julius Hodge was built just like me out of high school."
Douglas-Roberts explains why he's in no hurry to narrow his list dramatically. "My coaches have been telling me not to make a decision on anything until I know all of the that schools are interested." CDR did indicate Kansas has a realistic chance of landing an official visit. "Yeah, I think I will visit there, but that could change. If I we're to pick my schools to visit today, Kansas would definitely be in there."
Oregon seems like a possibility for Douglas-Roberts as well, and maybe even Malik Hairston. Hairston is a Top 10 combo guard who’s a 2004 prospect. The two Detroit baller play on the same AAU team during the summer. Douglas-Roberts talked with Hairston on Monday. "He is really interested in Oregon, I'd say they are the favorite right now. He took a visit (this past weekend) and it went really good. If he commits to Oregon, who knows? They came to see me the other day. I like Oregon too because their style of play fits."
