Basketball recruiting

Hairston spurns Michigan

The Malik Hairston saga continues.

Hairston, a 6-foot-5 guard from Detroit who has had six colleges on his list, tells ESPN's Andy Katz that Michigan is not one of his finalists.

That would cut his list to Kansas University, UCLA, Ohio State, Oregon and Oklahoma, with visits to Oregon and Oklahoma still planned.

"They're not a fit for me," Hairston said of in-state schools Michigan and Michigan State.

There have been reports UCLA and Kansas now appear to be the leaders.


Texans sign Norris

Houston -- The Houston Texans signed former Kansas University fullback Moran Norris, a restricted free agent, to a contract Monday. Terms were not disclosed. Norris, who has played the last two seasons with the Texans, caught seven passes for 40 yards in 2003. He also returned five kicks for 71 yards and made five special-teams tackles. Norris played at KU from 1997 to 2000.
