KU coaches went north after Saturday's win to watch 2019 prospect Matt Hurt
Not long after KU's 87-63 win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday afternoon, Kansas coach Bill Self and assistant coach Jerrance Howard headed to South Dakota to watch 2019 recruit Matthew Hurt in the Hoop City Classic.
Hurt, the five-star forward and Top 10 prospect from Rochester, Minn., who has been at the top of KU's wish list in the 2019 class for years, scored 36 points in a 74-62 loss to Brandon Valley (SD).
Hurt has unofficially visited Kansas, but has yet to make an official visit to Lawrence. That is scheduled for the first weekend of February.
The 6-foot-9, 200-pound do-everything forward officially visited Kentucky in November, North Carolina in mid-December, and will visit Duke in January.
Memphis, which also had an assistant coach on hand Saturday night, is also in the mix for Hurt.
