Hmmm. Turns out it may not just be Kim Kardashian’s sisters that Kris Humphries has rubbed the wrong way. The former University of Minnesota star and new Mr. Kardashian apparently has a long history of bad first impressions dating all the way back to when he took an official visit to B-ball powerhouse Univ. of Kansas during his senior year of high school. In a snippet from the soon-to-be-released book “Beyond the Phog: Untold Stories from Kansas Basketball’s Most Dominant Decade,” former guard Keith Langford told author Jason King of Yahoo! Sports why Kris never became a Jayhawk. Keith said he and his teammates were so disgusted with Kris’ arrogance that they encouraged then-Kansas coach Roy Williams to stop recruiting him. He explained that when Kris visited the school, he apparently told everyone that he’d be the leading scorer as a freshman and that the rest of the team would all have to take a backseat to him. (ouch!). Although a top recruit at the time, Coach Williams heeded his team’s concerns about Kris not meshing well with the program and eventually turned the 6-foot-9 star down. (wah wah wah)

But in defense of the newest member of the Kardashian clan, Kris seems to have matured a bit since his younger days. His former coach still thinks highly of him. Ex-Minnesota coach and current Long Beach State coach Dan Monson reconnected with Kris back in March when the NBA forward called to personally invite him to his wedding. Coach Monson told that Kris said: “I’ve been thinking a lot about you. I’m in a really good place professionally. I’ve met somebody special. I’ve been reflecting back, and you had a lot to do with that. I never got a chance to thank you.” Awww…we’re willing to give this hunk a chance (and so should his sister-in-laws)–especially in these sporty-chic Carrera shades. –rpuccia
