Doyle waiting on decision from Kansas
By Scott Powers
Marshall senior guard Milton Doyle was prepared to commit to Kansas on Tuesday, but he was told to hold off because the Jayhawks are still waiting on the status of other recruits, Doyle’s mother said.
Doyle, a 6-foot-4 guard, made an official visit to Kansas on Monday and Tuesday and is set to return to Chicago on Tuesday night. He met with Kansas coach Bill Self on Tuesday afternoon.
“They told him they were waiting on other recruits and whether they would qualify,” Doyle’s mother Lisa Green said. “He’s disappointed. We have no choice but to wait because it’s late in the game. They told him they’ll let him know by Friday. We will be talking to other schools.”
Doyle previously signed with Florida International, but he was let out of his letter of intent after the school fired coach Isiah Thomas. Doyle averaged 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists while playing in the Chicago Public League his senior season.
“This is the school of his dreams,” Green said of Kansas. “He dreamed about Duke, Kansas and Kentucky.”
Doyle flew under the radar for much of his high school basketball career. He attended Tilden his first two years and then transferred to Marshall. He broke his wrist and did not play his junior season. He also didn’t play the summer club circuit prior to his senior season.
