Kansas Basketball: Bill Self Comments On Addition Of Milton Doyle

With Milton Doyle's grant-in-aid in paperwork signed, Kansas basketball head coach Bill Self was able to comment on the addition of the Chicago combo guard to the 2012 recruiting class, even if it came via press release.

"Milton graduated this past week," Self said. "He is in Lawrence, enrolled and attending class and is officially a Kansas Jayhawk. I'm excited for him. He's got length and reminds me so much of Tyshawn (Taylor), including recruiting in that he committed to FIU (Florida International) and they had a coaching change, and we were fortunate enough to recruit him after that."

Taylor had originally committed to Marquette before they underwent a coaching change.

The 6-foot-4, 185-pound Doyle averaged 19 points, seven rebounds, five assists and five steals per game in the Chicago Public League last season. Before the addition of Doyle, Kansas had the No. 10 recruiting class in the country, according to Rivals.com.

"I'm so appreciative of his family trusting us throughout the recruiting process because it was so quick after the situation at Florida International," Self added. "I have known coach (Henry) Cotton (at Marshall HS) for a long, long time and he sings Milton's praises on his talent. Milton would have been a very highly recruited kid had he played AAU last summer but he didn't because he was injured and a lot of people didn't have the opportunity to see him."
