Kansas University's women's basketball team still is awaiting signed letters of intent from at least three high school seniors.

KU assistant coach-recruiting coordinator Tim Eatman said the Jayhawks hadn't received letters as of late Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.

"We don't have them yet," Eatman said, "but we think they're on the way."

Coaches can't comment on recruits until they have the signed letters in hand.

The Jayhawks are expected to secure letters from three high school seniors: Salena Scott, a 5-foot-6 point guard from Austin (Texas) St. Michael's Academy; Dalchon Brown, a 6-4 center from Virginia Beach (Va.) Green Run High; and Katie Hannon, a 6-2 shooting guard from Rochester (N.Y.) Gates Chili High. Those three have given KU nonbinding verbal commitments.

Eatman said he expected three and possibly four letters of intent.

A fourth player, 6-2 guard Kenya Bibbs, from Starkville (Miss.) High, reportedly is considering Kansas.

Bibbs, the 27th-best player in the country according to the Blue Star recruiting service, said she has decided on a school but won't announce her decision until next Wednesday.
