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.
