Storrs, Others Making Stop In Lawrence

Lance Storrs

It's been a big week or so for Lance Storrs and a few of his teammates with the Georgia Stars. After spending several days in St. Louis taking part in Nike's All-American camp for underclassmen, the Hoop Jamboree, the 6-5 WG/WF from Decatur (GA) Columbia is taking a Sunday unofficial visit to Kansas and he isn't coming alone.

Going along for the ride are 6-8 BF Jeremy Price who attends the same high school as Storrs, 6-0 PG Adrian Williams from Smyrna (GA) The Westminster School and 6-5 WG/WF Jamar Moore from Thomasville (GA) Thomas County Central. Serving as a tour guide of sorts for the crew’s 10 am meeting with the Kansas coaching staff is their club coach Harold Thompson.

“They have been recruiting Lance and the rest of the guys are riding with me so we thought we’d drive over and check it out,” said Thompson. “I want to get them all a taste of the college experience. Since they are with me we can kind of kill two birds with one stone in getting Lance his visit and them the experience.”

Lance Storrs played his way onto the Kansas radar during April when assistant coach Joe Dooley caught one of his games at the Kingwood Classic in Houston. It wasn’t long before the staff reached out and indicated their interest in the smooth and fast wing.

“We were kind of surprised to get the call,” Thompson told Phog.net. “Kansas is always going to be a top choice though and you’ve got to check them out.”

A nice athlete who plays the game fast, Storrs has a lot to offer. He’s an excellent ball handler who gets into the lane and finds teammates or finishes and is the owner of a dangerous jump shot as well.

“They (Kansas) like his size and they say he has a great body,” said Thompson. “They like his overall potential and they say that are recruiting eight guys right now with Cole Aldrich as their number one guy. Lance is right in that group after Aldrich and he’s excited about seeing campus.”

From the sounds of it, Thompson agrees with the Kansas staff’s assessment of one of his star players.

“Right now, for me he can play all five positions if needed,” said Thompson. “He does everything he can to help you win and he plays hard. He’s a great kid and he’s always won wherever he goes.”

Additional note- It should be pointed out that each of Storrs’ teammates is a player that is going to get attention on the high major level. Williams is a solid no-nonsense PG who is quick off the bounce and plays terrific defense. Moore is an entertaining wing who uses his plentiful athleticism to explode to the rim and has a nose for the ball. Price is perhaps the best prospect of the group and should be considered as a player who is now on the Kansas radar. At 6-8 he uses his strength to post up strong around the basket and he’s always in attack mode.
