The late signing period is underway in college basketball, and Tony Parker is still considering headed to Kansas.

College basketball's late signing period is officially underway, and one of the most sought after recruits in the country will be on ESPNU on Wednesday night discussing his future. Tony Parker is scheduled to appear on ESPNU's signing-day show, but, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he won't be signing any commitment papers during the show.

Michael Carvell oer at the AJC took time out to break down the pros and cons of each contending school, which includes the Kansas Jayhawks.

Kansas - Pros: This was Parker's best official visit and he was blown away by the atmosphere. Cons: The Jayhawks got in the Parker sweepstakes too late. Former NBA star Danny Manning, who specialized in training big men at Kansas, was hired away as Tulsa's coach. Out of our four finalists, Kansas would be the toughest place for Parker to have an instant impact because of team depth. Final opinion: When Manning left the building, so did Kansas' best chances. Otherwise, they might be our frontrunner. Timing is everything in life, isn't it?

It's unfortunate that Manning's departure could result in the loss of an impact recruit, but that's just how college sports work. The Jayhawks, at least, did hold the best visit for Parker, so they are certainly still in the race.
