09:18 AM ET 06.06 | While Bill Self went with a green silk shirt and white pants at a recent event, he wasn't the only one dressed to impress. That'd be incoming freshman point guard Naadir Tharpe, who several months earlier also stood out by arriving in business attire on his official recruiting trip to KU. ... "What a great kid," Self said of Naadir, New England Preparatory School Athletic Council player of the year. "This kid showed up on his recruiting visit in a tie. He reminds me a lot of Aaron [Miles, KU career assists leader, 954, 2002-05]. There are things about him ... people gravitate to him. I think he'll be a great leader for us, a great recruiter for us moving forward. I'll be shocked if he's not more an impact player next season than what a lot of people think. He's a lot better player than his ranking," Self added.
