By ADAM ZAGORIAChris Ledlum, the 6-foot-7, 225-pound small forward from St. Peter’s Boys High School and the NY Jayhawks AAU program, continues to pile up offers in the wake of Sunday’s PSA Cardinals/NY Jayhawks Combine.
Ledlum has added offers from Texas Tech, Iowa, Illinois and Notre Dame.
“Chris is a high-motored skilled small forward with a college-ready body,” Jayhawks director Jay David said. “His work ethic on the floor is something that he demonstrates in the classroom as well. He currently has an 1150 SAT with a 4.0 GPA. Because of that work ethic, the sky is the limit. He has offers from a variety of conferences.”
Ledlum recently visited both St. John’s and Seton Hall.
“St. John’s was good,” he said of his June visit. “I got to speak to coach [Chris] Mullin. They talk to me about their offense and how they like to spread the floor, develop and make reads. I feel am I player that can do that.
“Seton Hall was good as well. They spoke to me about development and growth on and off floor.”
He has no other visits currently scheduled.
