Five-star guard Bryce Thompson was down to a final four of schools in his recruitment, which included the Kansas Jayhawks, North Carolina Tar Heels, Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cobowys.

With the first signing period of the 2020 recruiting class underway, he has decided on the school where he’ll be taking his talents. He is headed to Kansas and will bolster coach Bill Self’s roster immediately.

During his commitment announcement, he said that it would be a good fit for him and that his dad playing for Bill Self in his heyday played a part in his decision.

The 6-foot-5, 175-pound Tulsa native is ranked as the No. 19 player in the class of 2020, the top player in Oklahoma and the No. 4 player at his position according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Thompson also has offers from Arkansas, Texas, Iowa, Minnesota, Tennessee and Notre Dame among others.

The young man took official visits to Kansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas A&M, Michigan State, Colorado and Texas during his recruitment. Those visits started in September of 2018 with the Buffaloes.

This is the first five-star talent the Kansas Jayhawks have landed since receiving a formal notice of allegations from the NCAA. Self only convinced one top 100 ESPN talent from 2019 to come to the program. Bryce Thompson, in turn, is a good get.
