Kansas checks in on JRE
Kansas assistant coach Norm Roberts was in Florida Tuesday morning to check in on Class of 2019 power forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL.
As KUsports.com reported last week, Robinson-Earl's recruitment appears to be coming to an end with an announcement likely coming within the next few weeks.
Robinson-Earl, who spent his first three seasons of high school basketball leading nearby Bishop Miege to state titles, transferred to IMG to experience a new style of ball and better competition for his senior season.
The son of former KU forward Lester Earl, Robinson-Earl is the No. 10-ranked player in the 2019 class per Rivals.com and has been atop the KU wish list in the class for the past few years.
He has narrowed his schools down to a final five of Arizona, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Villanova and Kansas and has completed his official visits to all five schools. Included in that was his trip to KU's Late Night back in late September.
Robinson-Earl's mother, Katie Robinson, told KUsports.com last week that her son had no exact date for an announcement but added that a decision would "be coming in the next few weeks."
The early signing period for student athletes to sign their national letters of intent begins Nov. 14 and ends Nov. 21.
KU currently has two players orally committed in the Class of 2019, four-star shooting guard Christian Braun of nearby Blue Valley Northwest High (No. 112 per Rivals.com) and four-star point guard Issac McBride (No. 109).
