The Kansas basketball team could conceivably have two point guards from Chicago’s Morgan Park High School on the roster in 2018-19.
Morgan Park senior-to-be Ayo Dosunmu, who received a scholarship offer from KU on June 9, happens to be a good friend of KU redshirt sophomore Charlie Moore, a graduate of the Public League school located on the far South Side.
“Our relationship is great. I’ve known Charlie for a good 10 years. We’re going to talk about how we’re going to do things,” Dosunmu said in an interview with USA Today.
Dosunmu, who is ranked No. 29 in the Class of 2018 by Rivals.com, said he has visits planned to KU, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Xavier, Illinois and Northwestern. He’s also received offers from Missouri, Butler, North Carolina State and Marquette.
The 6-foot-4 Dosunmu also plays for Chicago’s Mac Irvin Fire with future Jayhawk guard Markese Jacobs, a 5-11 junior-to-be from Chicago Uplift Community High. Jacobs, who has orally committed to KU, is leaving the Windy City for Phoenix, where he’ll attend Hillcrest Prep his junior season. Moore also is a Mac Irvin Fire alumni.
