Hearing: KU Zooms with Recruit

Iโ€™m Hearing KU held a video meeting with Samford transfer A.J. Staton-McCray. I believe heโ€™s one of a few guards the Jayhawks are currently looking into (see VIP section below).

I think this was more of an exploratory call for KU and Stanton-McCray, which makes me hesitant to think something moves quickly here (if at all).

Staton-McCray is a 6โ€™5โ€ combo guard coming off a junior season in which he averaged 11.5 points and shot 41.3% from three. He also ranked No. 39 in the country in steal percentage, per Kenpom.

You can see his stats here.

One source told me Stanton-McCray is a popular target in the portal. This makes me think heโ€™s not the most likely addition for KU. But this Hearing shows the kind of players KU is looking into.

KU fans probably remember Staton-McCray for a particular play. The Jayhawks played against his Samford team in the first round of the NCAA Tournamentโ€ฆ

and he maybe fouled Nick Timberlake at the end of that game.

Staton-McCray isnโ€™t the only player Iโ€™m Hearing some chatter about...

Iโ€™m sharing another name to watch + my take on what KU is looking to add in the VIP section below. There are some good Hearings in there๐Ÿ‘‡ย
