Bryce Thompson announces on CBS

2020 five-star shooting guard Bryce Thompson committed to Kansas on CBS Sports HQ.

Thompson chose the Jayhawks over Oklahoma, North Carolina and Oklahoma State.

“Great fit for me. He told me everything, where I could fit in,” he told Evan Daniels on CBS Sports HQ. “He showed me a lot of film. He showed me where I can go in and make an impact.”

He is the son of former Tulsa standout Rod Thompson, who Bill Self coached for one season.

“Kansas is a great school. I had a great visit with a lot of players. Coach (Bill) Self is a great guy. Coach Norm (Roberts) and all of the other assistants have done a great job recruiting me and making sure that I know that it is a home away from home. My dad and Coach Self have a great relationship, as well as Coach Norm. They were here at the University of Tulsa, so that was obviously a big plus. They’ve also been there for a long time. It’s a great school with great tradition.” – Bryce Thompson tells last week.

Thompson joins 6-10 center Gethro Muscadin and junior college forward Tyon Grant-Foster in Bill Self’s 2020 recruiting class.

Thompson becomes the first five-star commitment for the Jayhawks since November of 2017.
