Default Kuzma

Kyle Kuzma is really good and many of the coaches who have went to see him say he is high major, but he is high on Bradley and has great relationship with Coach Uken. Planning official visit in January and could be a steal.

Kyle Kuzma visited UC Irvine on an unofficial visit, and left today with a scholarship offer from the Anteaters and Head Coach Russell Turner.

Rise Academy has been in the news with kids from St. John's who went there to get eligible. Both (Norvel Pelle & Amir Garrett) had issues with their coursework there with NCAA saying they weren't accepting their Rise coursework..

"...Norvel Pelle, and Amir Garrett were ruled ineligible - each were missing core
classes for NCAA eligibility and needed to get high marks in those classes, but
the NCAA didn't accept their grades from the Rise Academy."

"Norvel originally committed to St. John's in last fall's signing period. But Pelle
...was deemed academically ineligible after the NCAA did not accept grades
from summer courses taken at Rise Academy in Philadelphia."

Here is a recruiting analyst's high opinion on Kuzma.

It is very favorable.

According to several recruiting sites, Kyle Kuzma is playing great this summer and starting to get attention from numerous high majors. I doubt a mid-major has a chance with him any more.

Default Kuzma blowing up

After A 41 point performance last night in Vegas Kyle Kuzma has picked up an offer from UConn. Uken had great relationship with the kid to bad he blew up like that on us.

Also Missouri offered yesterday, and other majors will, too.

Kyle Kuzma has committed to Utah
http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/utes/56...ibune.html.csp

Probably a good chance for immediate playing time except that they have only one senior this season - and he happens to be a forward who is projected as a starter that plays the same spot Kyle plays...........so KK can possibly take that spot - then after him, everyone else will be back

Bradley was interested in Kyle Kuzma - then Kuzma was going to do an extra year of prep school but changed his mind and accept the Utah offer - re-re-classifying as 2013..

but I do not see him on their roster - Is he still at Utah or is he redshirting?

ESPN still has him as a 2014: http://insider.espn.go.com/blog/dave-telep/post?id=4029 (Subs. req.) This article is from September and states he is a member of the 2014 Ute class.

That would seem to suggest he is at a prep school.
But this article from his home town newspaper said:
Flint's Kyle Kuzma forgoes post-grad year at Rise Academy to start career at University of Utah
http://www.mlive.com/sports/flint/in...goes_post.html

That article also said he was planning on redshirting.

His Twitter page also says he is at University of Utah and shows him in a Utah Utes uniform, and shooting on their home floor-

fans have also posted at Utah on their message boards that they have seen him on campus and at practices - so I think it's pretty certain he is at Utah
