LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas has landed small forward Jalen Wilson, the last remaining top 50 prospect, to polish off a recruiting class that will finish among the top 20 in the country.

The 6-foot-8 Wilson was a longtime commit to Michigan, but he reopened his recruitment when coach John Beilein left the Wolverines for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Wilson, who went to Guyer High School in Denton, Texas, took visits to North Carolina and Kansas before making his pledge to the Jayhawks public on Wednesday.

Kansas missed out on several elite prospects early in the recruiting cycle, but coach Bill Self finished strongly by bringing in a quartet of four-star prospects in Wilson, fellow forward Tristan Enaruna and top 150 guards Isaac McBride and Christian Braun.

The Jayhawks also landed Iowa graduate transfer Isaiah Moss this week.
