College Basketball Recruiting: Milton Doyle Commits to Kansas Jayhawks

Milton Doyle will be joining the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team, head coach Bill Self said Monday.

Self made note that Doyle, 6’4’’, is a great combo guard, and reminds him of Tyshawn Taylor in terms of play style.

“I’m excited for him,” Self said. “He’s got length and reminds me so much of Tyshawn [Taylor], including recruiting in that he committed to FIU, and they had a coaching change and we were fortunate enough to recruit him after that.”

A similar situation occurred after Taylor committed to Marquette, before switching to Kansas after a coaching change was made.

Doyle is bringing a wealth of honors to the Jayhawks, as he was named a Chicago Public League All-State and put up 20 points in the all-star game that followed the honor.

In his senior season, Doyle averaged 19.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 5.0 steals, showing that he does bring a complete game to the court.

“He’s got a lot of upside,” Self said. “He… can certainly play on the ball. He’s also big enough and skilled enough to play off the ball and a very good athlete. I think he’ll give us great depth in our backcourt.”

Doyle will be looking to replace Taylor in the future, who graduated this past season.
