Latrell Jossell Commits To Kansas

2020 point guard Latrell Jossell will join the Kansas Jayhawks

Point guard Latrell Jossell has committed to play his college basketball in Kansas. The Texas native is an undersized player at 5’11” but he is one of those prospects that just knows how to play the game and out play his ranking. He can score the ball with his outside shot as well as getting to the basket off of the dribble however his athleticism is not at the level you want to see for a program like Kansas. If he can overcome not being the best athlete and the size disparity he has a chance to impact the game with his ability to facilitate. Setting up teammates comes naturally to the guard and he should be more than capable of running the offense using good decision making. He could struggle as a defender so he will need to improve in that area as well if he wants to earn playing time for the Jayhawks.

Jossell is an unranked three star on Rivals, while 247 Sports and ESPN do not have him ranked in the class of 2020. Kansas felt they needed another guard in the class and while this could be somewhat of a reach he fills the need of a lead guard that has a high basketball I.Q. This makes four commitments in the class for Kansas with Jossell being the lowest ranked recruit heading to Lawrence. He is likely a four year player at the college level but if he can continue to improve and shows the ability to run the offense then he could make an impact later in his college career. Jossell has already signed in the early signing period so he is locked in to join the team next season.
