The defending NCAA champions are only getting better. Ernest Udeh Jr., a top 25 prospect in the class of 2022 from Orlando, Florida, will be suiting up for the Kansas Jayhawks next season. The 6’10” center was mulling offers from schools like UCLA, Texas Tech, and the University of Florida until ultimately deciding to make the jump to Lawrence, Kansas. Udeh joins fellow McDonald’s All-Americans Gradey Dick, and M.J. Rice at Kansas, solidifying them as a top ranked recruiting class this off-season.
“The Fans can expect, first and foremost, the chemistry,” Udeh told the media at the McDonald’s All-American game. “Being here with these guys and knowing them before committing, the chemistry is going to be really good. Just going into next year with all our focus, we’re trying to win every game and be the best group in this class.”
