Kansas lands touted swingman Lagerald Vick for 2015 class
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Prized prospect Lagerald Vick, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, has reclassified for the 2015 class and signed a grant-in-aid agreement to play basketball for Kansas.
Vick was originally planning to attend prep school for a year, but he managed to complete all the academic requirements necessary to be part of this year’s recruiting class. He signed his agreement Tuesday.
He averaged 27 points, 11 rebounds and five assists last season for Douglass High School in Memphis, Tennessee. He averaged 24 points and eight boards as a junior.
Vick joins incoming freshmen Cheick Diallo and Carlton Bragg in giving the Jayhawks one of the top recruiting classes in the country. All three are consensus top-50 recruits.
