Hansbrough in Kansas City

KU target Tyler Hansbrough is playing in Kansas City today and tomorrow

With the early August college decision pushed back for Tyler Hansbrough, there doesn't appear to be a new concrete target date.

"I'm not sure when I'll pick a school," said Hansbrough. "I just want to make sure I'm going to the right place and I want to take my time. I don't want to rush anything."

The 6'9" big man has been busy all summer on the AAU circuit, and he doesn't feel totally comfortable with one college at this time.

"I just want to make sure I like the school, the program, and the coach," explained Hansbrough.

Despite murmurs that Hansbrough is a shoe-in to wear Tar Heel baby blue next year, the Poplar Bluff, MO power forward isn't tipping his hand.

When asked what he would tell fans who believe the Jayhawks are no longer in the picture, Hansbrough stated, "I feel they have a really good shot. I like the coaching staff there, and they have a great reputation for developing players."

The Southeast Missouri resident continues to get suggestions in regards to where he should attend school from the locals.

"Being from Missouri, I get that a lot," He acknowledged.

It appears the Tigers will receive a slap on the wrist for their past NCAA violations instead of a severe penalty which bodes will for Quinn Snyder and company.

"It does make it a lot better that they probably won't be in trouble. That would give them a much better chance of getting me," said Hansbrough.

Hansbrough will be in Kansas City this week competing with his AAU team the St. Louis Eagles in the Price Chopper Invitational at the Mid America West Sports Complex. The 6'9" power forward will play on Wednesday (7/28) at 6:30 p.m. and on Thursday (7/29) at 1:30 and 6:30 p.m.
