Alabama recruit visits Kansas

Huntsville (Ala.) shooting guard Trevor Lacey visited Kansas last weekend and will announce his college decision at a May 18 news conference at Huntsville's Butler High, according to Rivals.com. Lacey, a five-star prospect ranked No. 24 overall in the class of 2011, will choose between Kansas, Kentucky, Alabama and Auburn.

Lacey's commitment would be huge for Kansas, which still has four scholarships available for next season and needs a dependable perimeter shooting option with Tyrel Reed, Brady Morningstar and Josh Selby gone. Lacey would be able to contend for a starting job quickly. KU is also waiting on the decisions of five-star small forward DeAndre Daniels (Duke, Kansas or Texas) and three-star forward Jamari Traylor (Kansas, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech or Indiana).

* Kansas State guard Brittany Chambers and Kansas forward Carolyn Davis will attend team trials May 22-25 for the USA Basketball Women's World University Games.

* Iowa State forward Calvin Godfrey has been dismissed from the team after the school says he was arrested for marijuana possession.

Godfrey averaged 5.7 points and 5.4 rebounds in a promising freshman season in 2010-11.

But Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg says in a statement that Godfrey violated team rules on multiple occasions and that his weekend arrest was the final straw.

Godfrey was suspended for three Big 12 games in February for violating unspecified team policies.

Godfrey, a 6-foot-8 forward from Milwaukee, scored 23 points with 11 rebounds in a late-season win over Colorado.

The battle to replace Blaine Gabbert as Missouri's starting quarterback is over. His younger brother, Tyler, has decided to transfer.

Coach Gary Pinkel said Monday that redshirt freshman Tyler Gabbert is leaving, ending the competition with sophomore James Franklin to succeed Blaine Gabbert as the Tigers' signal-caller.

Both players entered spring practice with what coaches called an equal shot at replacing Blaine Gabbert, Tyler Gabbert's older brother, for the starting job. Franklin was elevated to the top of the depth chart entering the fall after a stronger performance in the spring game.


K-State freshman outfielder Jared King was named the Big 12 newcomer of the week for the second time, hitting .400 last week with two home runs and five RBIs in five games.

* The FBI released documents Monday stating that New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner assisted the agency in two investigations — one of them apparently a terrorism probe — in the years leading up to his pardon by President Ronald Reagan on a campaign-contributions conviction.

The Associated Press and other news organizations requested the FBI file under the Freedom of Information Act following Steinbrenner's death in July. The first release was made last December. The two releases combined totaled about 800 pages.

In a newly released 1988 FBI memo, the FBI said that it "supports the contention that George Steinbrenner has provided the FBI with valuable assistance."

Seven months later, Reagan pardoned Steinbrenner for his convictions in a case involving campaign donations to President Richard Nixon and other politicians.
