Rivals.com analyst Corey Evans caught up with five-star forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl this week and posted an update on Robinson-Earl’s recruitment on Thursday afternoon.

The former Bishop Miege standout who transferred to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., for his senior season, has long been at the top of KU’s wish list in the 2019 recruiting class and he is fresh off of an official visit to KU for Late Night last weekend.

“It was good,” Robinson-Earl told Evans of his Late Night experience. “I felt like I got a different perspective because it was more laid back and they showed me a lot more. They have told me a lot of stuff in the past, but this time I was really able to see it during practice and watch some film on who they have had in the past and how they like to run stuff through the four, as well. Versatile 4s are very successful there, being able to rebound, push the ball and shoot it.”

Robinson-Earl joined Evans to break down all five of his finalists, but was asked specifically if leaving the area has made him long to return to Kansas for college.

“It would be cool being able to play where my dad (Lester Earl) played and also having my family there and all of my friends that I have back in Kansas City,” he told Evans. “So it would be pretty much home and be a very good fit.”

On our latest Recruiting Trail podcast, KUsports.com recruiting insider Matt Scott said, “Kansas is sitting just fine with Jeremiah Robinson-Earl.”

In his recent interview with Evans, Robinson-Earl hinted at a timeline for a decision.

“At least before the season starts in late November,” he said. “And if I know where I want to go, I will just commit.”

The early signing period is scheduled for Nov. 14-21. If JRE does not sign by Nov. 21, he will have to wait until April to make his commitment official.
