Coach Bill Self mentors his team against Texas Tech. Kansas defeated Texas Tech 79-63 on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019.

Four-star small forward Jalen Wilson announced Wednesday via Twitter he has committed to Kansas men's basketball team. 

After committing in Michigan on May 30, 2018, Wilson requested and was granted a release from his commitment on May 16, 2019. This announcement came via Twitter following the announcement of Michigan coach John Beilein’s departure from the program for the NBA.

According to ESPN, Wilson is a four-star recruit from Denton, Texas, and is ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 47 player, and No. 9 small forward in the 2019-2020 recruiting class.

Wilson put up an average of 18.1 points and 7.5 rebounds during his senior year at Guyer High School. This performance earned him an all-state selection by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.

After visiting the University May 30, Wilson visited North Carolina June 3. Wilson also mentioned interest in Michigan.

Alongside Wilson, Tristan Enaruna, Christian Braun and Isaac McBride have all signed letters of intent to play at Kansas.
