    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    KobeOnetime Baylor commit Kobie Eubanks remains on the board as we head into mid-May.

    A 6-foot-5, 212-pound wing out of Delray Beach (FL) Elev8 Sports Institute, Eubanks told SNY.tv on Friday he hopes to visit Kansas and Alabama in the next week and then make a decision.

    “I’m trying to plan out some visits,” he said by phone. “I’m just not sure yet, probably in the next week or so.”

    Eubanks said Kansas head coach Bill Self and assistant Jerrance Howard have been recruiting him.

    “[They say] that they need an impact guard to come in and score right away,” Eubanks said.

    Eubanks also hopes to visit Alabama, which recently hired new coach Avery Johnson.

    He said Arkansas is also involved, with assistant TJ Cleveland doing the recruiting.

    “They say almost the same thing, that they missing a two or three guard and they need someone to come in and score,” he said.

    Eubanks said he’s also considering West Virginia, Texas and other schools, but has no plans to visit them right now.

    “I’ll probably be cutting it down to three [schools],” he said.

    He hopes to have a decision wrapped up soon.

    “I’d say about a week or so,” he said.

    Wherever he goes, he figures to be an impact scorer.

    “I’ll be playing the 2 guard and a little bit of the 3,” he said.
