It’s safe to say that KU’s 2018 recruiting class may very well be as important as any in recent memory. Depending on how the roster shakes out at the end of the 2017-18 season, Bill Self and his staff could potentially sign six prospects from the 2018 class.

As Kansas fans are well aware, recently, the early signing period has been anything but kind to Self and his staff. In fact, from 2014-2017, a total of seven prospects, Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, Devonte’ Graham, Lagerald Vick, Cheick Diallo, Carlton Bragg, Jr., Josh Jackson, and Udoka Azubuike signed during the late signing period.

Of the 12 players that signed with Kansas during that stretch, just five, Cliff Alexander, Kelly Oubre, Jr., Mitch Lightfoot, Billy Preston and Marcus Garrett did so during the early signing period.

While much remains unknown at this time, Kansas, when all is said and done, could sign as many as six prospects from the 2018 class.

With the early signing period approaching, what might KU’s 2018 recruiting class look like in November?
