He chose Kansas over Memphis on Friday morning.

The 6-foot-8 forward shot up the recruiting rankings this summer and is currently rated as the 20th-best prospect in the Class of 2009. Consequently, 12 of Scout.com's top 20 prospects are now off the board -- though four of the top five (Derrick Favors, John Wall, Xavier Henry and Renardo Sidney) remain uncommitted.

1. Derrick Favors (uncommitted)

2. John Wall (uncommitted)

3. John Henson (committed to North Carolina)
