 LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -Kansas officials are checking to see if basketball coach Bill Self's brief encounter with a top recruit might constitute an NCAA infraction.
Self agrees he said hello to John Wall, a 6-foot-4 guard who had just played in a high school tournament in Springfield, Mo. It happened during an evaluation period last week when college coaches are not allowed contact with prospects other than to exchange greetings.
``We are aware of the report, and the administration is looking into it,'' said Chris Theisen, a Kansas spokesman.
Wall is rated the No. 1 overall recruit in the class of 2009 by Rivals.com. The Springfield News-Leader said the exchange took place between Self and Wall outside Wall's locker room after a game Thursday night.
does, I had to catch a plane. So I went back to tell the coaches, `Congratulations, good win.' I was approached and shook a hand and said, `I can't talk to you, but you played really well.'''
Kansas is in the final year of a three-year NCAA probation for violations in football and men's basketball.
``If that exchange, which is all it was, is a problem, then our administration will deal with it,'' Self said. ``I certainly by no means am I going to deny that basically that happened. But the reason I was back in the back was to say hi to the coaches after the game.''
The question is whether the NCAA would consider Self and Wall's exchange as contact.
