The younger sister of five-star basketball recruit Matthew Hurt landed a scholarship offer from Kansas earlier this week, according to a tweet from Minnesota reporter Pat Ruff.
Katie Hurt — a high school freshman — received the offer on Wednesday. She’s averaging 6.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game so far this season. According to Ruff, the Jayhawks also offered another freshman on Hurt’s team, Lilly Meister, who’s averaging 18.6 points and 9.8 rebounds per game this season.
Matthew Hurt is the top remaining recruiting target in the 2019 class for the Kansas’ men’s program, which is battling Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina and others for his commitment. Hurt is the No. 7 overall player in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
Kansas is the current leader on Hurt’s 247Sports Crystal Ball page, and the 6-foot-9 forward played for Bill Self with the USA Basketball U18 team over the summer.
Earlier in this recruiting cycle, Arizona extended an offer to the younger sister of four-star recruit Zeke Nnaji, who was also one of Matthew Hurt’s highly touted teammates on the Adidas circuit. Nnaji ended up committing to Arizona last month.
