Outside of a certain night in the middle of October, high school talent like what’s about to sit in Allen Fieldhouse on February 25th, rarely join in on a once in a lifetime trip to watch a once in a lifetime game.  The game, is a rematch against #3 Missouri, which could be the last time the Border War between the two is ever played, the talent is a “Who’s Who” among basketball elite, and the atmosphere is expected to be overwhelming.  Bill Self has recently admitted mistakes made on the recruiting trail, and has put together a perfect basketball weekend, in the perfect basketball town just prior to March Madness to try and correct his recent woes.  The talent that will have front row seats to perhaps the best game of the season, spans two classes and includes three players that have already committed to the Jayhawks in Perry Ellis, Brannen Greene, and Conner Frankamp.  You can assume that each will join the entire staff in welcoming the 4 non-committed recruits nearby and offer up their own sales pitch as to why each would look great in a Jayhawk uniform.  Below is a rundown of each attendee that is currently scheduled to appear.
