Kansas' 2024 basketball recruiting class suffered a setback when Labaron Philon opted out of his letter of intent to play at Alabama, but the two-man class of Flory Bidunga and Rakease Passmore was still ranked as the eighth-best national class on 247 Sports.

With Hunter Dickinson, KJ Adams, Dajuan Harris and Zeke Mayo set to graduate after the upcoming season, HC Bill Self may prioritize building from the ground up and targeting more high school students. This weekend will be especially important. According to The Kansas City Star, 5-star recruit Bryson Tiller will make an official visit to the KU campus this weekend.

Tiller is a name Jayhawk fans have known for some time. He is the 11th-best recruit in the class of 2025 and the fourth-best power forward according to 247 Sports Composite rankings. Tiller, a 6-foot-1 forward from Georgia, is a versatile four-man who can score inside and from the perimeter.

In December 2023, Tiller took his first official visit to KU, but with his senior year looming and a commitment drawing closer, this visit will likely be more important. The Overtime Elite forward is one of the most coveted players of his senior year and has visited Indiana and Providence.

Top-3 2025 prospect Darryn Peterson is heading to Lawrence this month, and many have speculated that will be the case this weekend. Coach Self could have two of the top high school recruits in the country on campus at the same time, so it will be a crucial week for him and his coaching staff.

If Kansas could sign one or both of these recruits, it would instantly have one of the best high school classes in the country. While a commitment isn't imminent, KU has a chance to move these two players closer to a commitment with a strong visit.
