GIF: Recruit Cliff Alexander Just Fake-Hat-Picked Illinois, Actually Chose Kansas

Earlier today, Kansas missed out on both the No. 1 overall player (ESPN) in the 2014 class, Jahlil Okafor, and the No. 4 overall player, Tyus Jones, as the duo chose to play for Duke and coach Mike Krzyzewski next season. But just a few hours later, the Jayhawks were able to land the No. 3 overall player, center/power forward Cliff Alexander. The way Alexander chose KU, however, was a serious troll job.

Yep – Alexander fake-hat-picked Illinois before donning the Kansas lid. It was dirty.

Here’s a GIF of the moment, via Gawker.

Here’s to hoping the Illini and Jayhawks square off on the hardwood in the next few years.
