One day after losing last season's starting point guard, Kansas has found his replacement.

Devonte Graham, the best point guard remaining in the class of 2014, has chosen the Jayhawks over North Carolina State.

The 6-foot-1 senior had once signed with Appalachian State, but after a long process that saw the Mountaineers initially refuse to release him, Graham was finally back on the market after Appalachian State hired a new coach. Graham immediately became one of the most sought-after prospects in the country, given his ability to make an impact right off the bat.

Graham could start as a freshman for Bill Self, as Kansas saw Naadir Tharpe leave the program on Thursday afternoon. Without Graham, Self's options would have been rising sophomores Frank Mason and Conner Frankamp. While both players are very good, Graham is more of a playmaker at the point guard position. He will certainly be in the mix to start from day one.

Graham rounds out a terrific recruiting class that includes top-10 prospects Cliff Alexander and Kelly Oubre.
