 CHICAGO (AP) - Cliff Alexander of Chicago's Curie High School, one of the nation's top recruits, says he's headed to Kansas.
The 6-foot-9 Alexander revealed his decision Friday during a ceremony at his school that was televised by ESPNU. He chose the Jayhawks over Illinois, DePaul and Memphis and teased the Fighting Illini during his announcement.
He said, ''After careful consideration, I have decided to continue my education at the University of ...'' - he then paused to pick up an Illinois cap and put it back down before grabbing a Kansas - before finishing, ''Kansas.''
Alexander led Curie to the Illinois Class 4A sectional semifinal before losing to Whitney Young and star center Jahlil Okafor, who verbally committed to Duke moments before Alexander's announcement.
