    Markese Jacobs, the 5-foot-11 point guard from Chicago Uplift (IL) Community High School, de-committed from Kansas on Friday, per 247Sports. Jacobs originally committed to Kansas in October of 2016.

    “My next step is pretty much to open up my recruitment and I’m still considering Kansas,” Jacobs said.

    According to 247Sports, Jacobs is ranked as the No. 104 overall player in the Class of 2019 and the No. 3 player from the state of Illinois. Before committing, Jacobs held offers from schools such as Illinois, Loyola Chicago, and DePaul.

    Jacobs’ older brother, Demarius, is currently committed to Saint Louis for the 2018¬†class.

    “I’m open to see what I get and pretty much go from there,” Jacobs said. “I just want to really make sure I’m in the best situation for myself. I want to find my best situations.”

    “The relationship with Jerrance [Howard] is¬†really tight, but my whole thing is I want to put myself in the best situation,” he added.

    Playing with Mac Irvin Fire on the Nike EYBL circuit this summer, Jacobs averaged 13.4 points and 2.3 assists in 16 games.
