16-Year Old Ukraine Phenom Commits To Kansas

Ukraine commits to Kansas

The rich get richer.

Bill Self has a knack for snatching up big time players in late spring. Around this time last year, Andrew Wiggins committed to Kansas. The Jayhawks currently have the 4th ranked class of 2014, with Cliff Alexander and Kelly Oubre headlining the class as McDonald’s All-Americans.

Self wasn’t done adding to this class apparently.

Mykhailiuk will have to stay at Kansas for at least two years before leaping to the NBA because he won’t turn 19 until 2016. He’ll be eligible to play this fall in Lawrence and he’s drawing comparisons to Nik Stauskas.

This kid won’t get the Wiggins hype, but the mystery and mystique around him is building.
