LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Highly touted forward Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk has signed to play college basketball at Kansas, adding the talented swingman from Ukraine to what was already a top-10 recruiting class.
The school announced his signing in a statement Wednesday.
The 6-foot-8 forward will be eligible to play this season, even though he won't turn 17 until June, because he has already completed high school in the Ukraine. But his age also means he will not be eligible for the NBA draft for at least two years because of age requirement rules.
Mykhailiuk shined at the under-16 European championships, averaging 25.2 points and eight rebounds. He also played for the world select team at the Nike Hoops Summit last month.
He joins Cliff Alexander, Kelly Oubre and Devonte Graham in this year's class.
