After hosting Kansas coach Bill Self and assistant coach Kurtis Townsend for an in-home visit on Wednesday, 2019 shooting guard Cassius Stanley revealed on Thursday he will officially visit Kansas during the weekend of Late Night in the Phog.

The 6-foot-5 Stanley, a four-star prospect from North Hollywood, Calif., is ranked No. 31 by Rivals.com in the 2019 class and is considered by many to be one of the best — if not the best — athletes in the class.

His highlight reels on YouTube have become must-see for many fans because of his gravity-defying dunks. However, Stanley is more than just a dunker. Stanley has worked hard on his all-around game over the past few years. His athletic ability puts defenders on their heels, which allows him to blow by them or shoot a pull-up jumper.

The versatile guard who has used his athleticism to play the 1, 2 and 3 — he also can guard those three positions on the defensive end — has said that KU, USC, UCLA, Oregon, Texas and South Carolina have been the schools putting in the most work in recruiting him.

The updated visitor's list for this year's Late Night (Sept. 28 at Allen Fieldhouse) looks like this:

  • Jeremiah Robinson-Earl
  • James Wiseman
  • Cassius Stanley
  • Christian Braun
  • R.J. Hampton
  • Chandler Lawson
  • Johnathan Lawson
  • Isaac McBride
  • Ty Berry
  • Bryce Thompson
  • Anthony Walker

kinda odd not seeing Matthew Hurt on this list for late night since KU is still considered the front runner to land him?

how does an unoffical visit compares to an offical visit? for unofficial vistis so they don't get reserve seating or they have to get seting like rest of us try to get early enough or they get in as a guest for a player or family like the lawson brothers if they are unoffical they can come in as "famiy" always wonder I know the younger lawsons and the BVNW are unofficial visits

It's more about the time they can spend with the coaching staff and what they can do while they're here.

Unofficial visits are very limited... More of a handshake and a hello and a nice to see you. Where official visits include sit-downs, tours of the facilities, events and interaction with the current team and nearly two full days of time together.

The visitors, official and unofficial, pretty much all sit together at Late Night, right behind the KU bench.

Stanley will be a great addition to Jayhawk MBB team. He's a very good handler and passer with lots of hopping oomph.
