Wichita prep star Connor Frankamp made it official on Wednesday, as he signed his National Letter of Intent to play basketball for Bill Self at the University of Kansas.
A 6-foot-0, 160-pound, Wichita, Kan., sharpshooter, Frankamp verbally committed to Kansas during his sophomore season at Wichita North High School. There, he help lead the Redskins and coach Gary Squires to the State Quarterfinals in 2011, averaging 32.2 points, 2.3 points, four rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.7 steals per game at Wichita North.
With 1,639 career points, Frankamp is 538 points from becoming the Wichita City League all-time leading scorer, surpassing current Jayhawk Perry Ellis, who currently holds the record.
Frankamp also led the U17 USA Basketball team to the gold medal at the FIBA World Championships in Kaunas, Lithuania this past summer. He led Team USA in scoring by averaging 14.1 points per game during the FIBA Championships.
He was also a member of the 2011 FIBA Americas U16 Championship team, which allowed the U17 team to qualify for the FIBA World Championships in 2012.
Frankamp adds to a dynamic class that got a boost, Tuesday, when Gainesville (Florida) big man Joel Embiid verbally committed to Kansas. He’s expected to sign his LOI on Thursday.
Together, they are joined in the Class of 2013 by two more top 100 prospects in Wayne Selden and Brannen Greene. Guard Frank Mason rounds out the class.
