Two of three Duncanville High players decommit from Kansas women's basketball
The Kansas women’s basketball program, rocked by the tough break of losing leading scorer Jessica Washington for the season with a torn ACL, also has received bad news on the recruiting front.
Two of the three recruits from national powerhouse Duncanville High who had made verbal commitments to Kansas have decommitted, according to Dan Olson of Collegiate Girls Basketball Report.
Shooting guard Zay Green, ranked No. 13 in the nation by Olson, is on a recruiting trip to Tennessee this weekend, Olson reported Friday. He said Green still is considering Kansas.
Forward Starr Jacobs is ranked No. 122 by Olson, who said she has committed to Houston. Point guard Aniya Thomas, a prolific 3-point shooter, remains committed to Kansas.
“She’s developed nicely,” Olson told the Journal-World of Thomas, on Oct. 1, the day the three players committed to KU. “She has deep, deep range and she’s a killer on defense. She’s a real tempo-destroyer for the other team."
On that same day, Olson said he expected that by season's end Green would break into his top five in the rankings.
"She is still open to going to Kansas," Olson said today of Green. "She's visiting Knoxville today and Saturday."
NCAA rules prohibit college coaches from commenting on unsigned recruits.
