After missing on DeAndre Daniels, Kansas has focused on another potential late addition.

Former Louisville commit Ryan Taylor is expected to take an unofficial visit to Lawrence this weekend, according to his uncle/high school coach, Paul Handley.

Handley told CBSSports.com that Kansas coach Bill Self called and offered a scholarship on Monday.

Handley also said the 6-foot-6 Taylor is just a couple points shy on his test score – and took another shot at it this past weekend. Louisville coach Rick Pitino, according to sources, did not feel as though Taylor would qualify academically - and also wasn’t quite as high on his abilities as he was a couple years ago.

Taylor, who transferred to Louisville Western High prior to this past season after three years at Lawrence North in Indianapolis, also has offers – per Handley – from West Virginia, Indiana and South Carolina.

However, a source close to the Indiana program told CBSSports.com that the Hoosiers have not offered Taylor.  


``He still loves Louisville, but I don’t know if they have a scholarship now,” Handley said.

You mean like Calipari did at UK?  How many schoolies did he pull was it 3?  OF course if Calipari really wanted him he would just have someone take his test for him like he did for Rose or someone to take online courses for him like Bledsoe


I just LOVE when morons comment without checking the facts first.

He'd be better off to go to Kansas. At least Self won't pull the kids scholarship.
