Wayne Selden, a 6'5 guard in the Class of 2013, has committed to play his college ball for coach Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks.

Selden is currently ranked No. 23 in the class by Rivals.com and No. 20 in the CBSsports.com top 100.

According to Jeff Borzello at CBSsports.com, Selden profiles as a versatile player who has skills suggesting he can play smaller or bigger than his 6-5 frame.

He is a physical player who uses his strength and build to get to the rim and finish in traffic. Over the summer, though, Selden showed improved ball-handling ability and shooting prowess. He consistently knocked down jumpers, making himself more difficult to defend. He is also an asset on the defensive end due to his athleticism and physical tools.

Selden was also considering UCLA, Missouri, Florida, Ohio State and Syracuse.

Selden is from Tilton, N.H., and is now a senior at the Tilton Academy, where he played last year with Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel.

Kansas is stockpiling talent for the Class of 2013, particularly in the back-court. Conner Frankamp and Brannen Greene are both top-30 commits, and point guard commit Frank Mason is ranked No. 131 in the most recent Rivals.com rankings.
