Chicago Marshall shooting guard Milton Doyle may soon commit to Kansas, his mother told SNY.tv Tuesday morning.
“Right now he’s just visiting,” Lisa Green said by phone. “We talked about it. I did tell him if he wants to give a verbal commit he can do that. If he really likes it, if they really woo him.”
The 6-foot-4 Doyle has been on campus since Monday and is due to return to Chicago Tuesday night.
“He hasn’t committed yet,” his mother said.
Doyle initially committed to FIU but parted ways once Chicago native Isiah Thomas was fired. (Read more on that here.)
“The way things went it was really tacky and really messy how things went down,” Green said. “Basically he was going because of Isiah, because of what Isiah can teach him.”
Kansas assistant Kurtis Townsend is recruiting Doyle, who averaged 19 points, eight rebounds, five assists and five steals while earning third-team All-State honors last season from the Chicago Tribune.
Kansas returns guards Naadir Tharpe and Elijah Johnson, plus senior wing Travis Releford. They also have freshmen wings Andrew White and Ben McLemore coming in.
