Senior guard Bobby Pettiford out of South Granville (NC) High School has committed to Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks. Once part of the 2021 recruiting class at Louisville, Pettiford asked out and received his Letter of Intent from Louisville after the news of assistant coach's Dino Gaudio and Luke Murray's contracts were not renewed. So on the market Pettiford went and it didn't take long for Coach Self and his staff to get the job done. 

Pettiford is a scorer that is strong and gets to his spots. He was named to the HoopSeen NCHSAA 2-A All-State team this season and led South Granville to the second round of the NCHSAA playoffs.
