Kansas Jayhawks head coach Bill Self has certainly been keeping busy has he not? He recently signed small forward Kelly Oubre, who will succeed Andrew Wiggins’ position in 2014. This is quick and excellent work by Self, and it could lead to a string of consistent Final Four success. Self made some interesting comments over the summer about how he would be interested in coaching the pros one day if the right opportunity was there.
This is also assuming (I’m guessing) that Self had proved everything that he had ever aimed to accomplish in college. To me? That would mean another national title. If you win two different national titles with a team with two totally different recruiting class, then that is truly elite. At that point, the coach of that team can do whatever he wants in my humble opinion.
Shout out to Jerry Meyer for tweeting this below about Oubre, who will be an excellent addition to the Jayhawks program even if he is no Wiggins.

You never know what can happen this year, but the Jayhawks coaching staff has said this is the most athletic team they’ve coached.
Self should keep up the good work, and if he keeps recruiting like this, then we could be looking at another title in Lawrence.
