I read enthusiastic comments from Bill Self about recruit Josh Selby, yet not a word from the coach about Zach Peters, the sophomore from Texas who verbally committed to Kansas. Should I take this to mean Self isn’t as excited about getting Peters as getting Selby?
No. Until they receive signed national letters of intent, coaches are not allowed to comment on recruits. Recruits are not allowed to sign until the fall of their senior years. Self was not quoted about Selby until receiving his letter of intent earlier this month. Self will be allowed to comment on Peters when he receives his letter, which won’t be until the fall of 2011 at the earliest.
