No. 28 Sr Silvio De Sousa May Play At KU In ‘17

No. 28 Sr Silvio De Sousa Joins Kansas Early

ESPN No. 28 ranked high school senior and Kansas commit Silvio De Sousa may play for Jayhwaks this year.

 

“He wants to go to Kansas in December,” De Sousa’s guardian Fenny Falmagne, told the Kansas City Star. “The whole goal is for him to play starting in December.”

 

KU head coach Bill Self said that this early option is possible for De Sousa because of the African native’s previous education before coming to the States.

 

“His graduating class graduates in December due to the fact he started in January in Angola,” Self said. “It’s his high school eighth semester.”

 

USA Today’s Cam Smith said De Sousa will be a major difference-maker for the Jayhawks when he joins the team.

 

“Whether he arrives this year or next, it’s clear that De Sousa could have a major impact in Lawrence whenever he is green lighted to compete,” wrote Smith. “He would likely immediately move into the rotation at Kansas [this season], even if he missed the season’s first four or five games while gaining eligibility.”

 

The 6-9 power forward out of IMG Academy (FL) averaged 20.5 points and 8.2 rebounds this spring for the Florida Vipers on the Under Armour Association circuit.

 

“He truly is a freak of nature,” said Falmagne. “His upside is just out of this world. He’s a kid that can put his shoulder on the rim. He can dribble, he can shoot, he can post up, he has great footwork. More than that, he’s just a great kid.”

 

Zagsblog’s Adam Zagoria loves De Sousa’s game.

 

“[He] has a tremendous motor and gets up and down the court in a hurry,” wrote Zagoria. “He’s also great in the post and near the basket.”

 

Stay tuned.
