...from somebody who has the recruiting thing dialed in. Its about a month until signing day, right? So, what does our current commit list (I know it can change) look like, and who are we in on that may likely add to that list. I'm to lazy to go find this info myself, and I know that I and others would like to know....Many Thanks

So far, we have 13 verbal commits and three signed commits (JUCO) for a total of 16 known commitments. That leaves us with roughly 6 spots to fill for next year. It could be more depending on how the JUCO players from this year and last are allocated across years. Nine of those are 3-star recruits, including all three of the JUCO pickups.

Top players: (3-star commits)

1. Carmon Boyd-Anderson (6'1" - 200 lbs) - RB - ranked as the 33rd RB in the class and one of the top players in Texas. Great vision, runs a 4.5 40 and picked KU over Iowa, ISU, Oklahoma State and Kansas State.

2. Jeremiah Hatch - (6'3" - 310 lbs) - OC - ranked as the 14th-rated center in the country. Committed to KU over Texas Tech and Arizona. From Dallas, Tx.

3. Drew Dudley - (6'2" - 212 lbs) - Inside LB - 26th-rated LB in the country. Runs a 4.6 40, benches 380 lbs and has a 3.9 GPA. Solid pickup.

4. Steven Foster - (6'3" - 230 lbs) - 12th-rated fullback and one of the top-rated players in the state of Kansas. Hails from Sedgwick, KS.

5. Chet Hartley – (6’4” – 310 lbs) – OL – projected at guard, played at Butler CC. Committed to the ‘Hawks despite offers from Illinois and Florida State

6. Patrick Resby – (6’2” – 195 lbs) – DB – Projected as a safety out of Navarro JC in Corsicana, Tx.

7. Kendrick Harper – (5’10” – 185 lbs) – DB – Projected at CB, played at Butler CC. Runs a 4.45 40.

8. Ryan Murphy – (5’10” – 170 lbs) – DB – Rated as the 27th-best CB and 5th-rated player in the state of Kansas. Ryan (and his brother Brian) committed out of Freestate HS in Lawrence. Runs a 4.4 40.

9. Aaron Mack – (6’4” – 245 lbs) – Weakside DE – JUCO player out of Phoenix, AZ. Quick off the end and considered a pass-rush specialist.

Other commits:

10. A.J. Steward – (6’4” – 210 lbs) – Dual-threat QB out of St. Louis, MO. Touted by some as the steal of the class.
11. Chris Tuck – (6’5” – 195 lbs) – WR – Hails from Mineola, TX and picked the ‘Hawks over Arizona.
12. Richard Johnson – (6’4” – 255 lbs) – DE from Jefferson City, MO. Projects to several positions, but stood out during the summer camps.
13. Jake Laptad – (6’4” – 215 lbs) – Strongside DE – from Jenks, OK. Played for an Oklahoma powerhouse and recorded 12.5 sacks this season (3.5 in the state title game). He runs extremely well and Bill Young is very high on this kid’s potential.
14. Patrick Dorsey – (5’11” – 265 lbs) – DT – First-team all-district performer out of Houston, TX despite missing a portion of the early season with a knee injury. Returned strong and committed to the ‘Hawks over Houston and Baylor.
15. Isaih Barfield – (6’0” – 175 lbs) – ATH – Haven, KS. 14th-rated player in the state of Kansas.
16. Brian Murphy – (5’8” – 165 lbs) – RB/WR – Freestate HS, Lawrence, KS. Ryan’s twin brother who probably projects at WR.


Others drawing interest:

William Cole – (5’10” – 165 lbs – 4.54 40) This 4-star WR out of Cedar Hill, TX is the 27th-rated WR and 47th-rated player in TX. Supposedly, he’s very high on the Jayhawks and planning a visit in the next couple of weeks.

Dezmon Briscoe – teammate of William Cole, this 2-star WR (6’2” – 180 lbs) – Also very high on the Jayhawks, would like to play with William Cole and is planning a co-visit when Cole comes to Lawrence.

Chris Harris – (6’0” – 180 lbs) ATH – outstanding player out of Bixby, OK. Scheduled to be here this weekend and likely to commit.

Thomas Merriweather – (5’11’’ – 185 lbs) – RB out of St. Louis, MO. 39th-best RB, 15th-rated player in MO.

Trey Baysinger – (6’6” – 290 lbs) OT out of Dallas, TX

Michael Ray – (6’2” 240 lbs) Weakside DE out of La Marque, TX

Clifton Odom – (5’11” 175 lbs) DB out of Arlington, TX

Shaka Harris – (6’0” 205 lbs) RB out of Carrollton, TX

Michael Connolly – (6’2” 240 lbs) Strongside DE out of Sarasota, FL

De’Von Bailey – (6’2” – 200 lbs) ATH – 6th-rated player in Oklahoma

Korey Williams – (6’2” 230 lbs) LB out of New Orleans – 3-star kid with a lot of offers, KU is late to the game but in the running

Chris Patterson – 4-star JUCO LB out of Joliet CC…has offer on the table.

Well one thing is for certain, if the kid does want to gain weight, he picked a Head Coach who has ALL the secrets!

Many thanks, 154. That's just what I was looking for. I see the world through Crimson and Blue goggles, but with a strong finish looks like a good class. Won't know until 3 to 5 years from now, though.

Does anyone know exactly which day is signing day?

I'm glad NC "resigned", but is anyone else concerned that we might lose a recruit or 2 with the his resignation? He was the recruiting coordinator for Richard Johnson, Jr., and A.J. Steward. I'm really excited about this Steward kid and hope this doesn't affect his decision.

Do you mean 6 feet tall according to the media guide or 6 feet tall in person?

Height wasn't the problem this past season:

Raymond Brown So. 6-3/200
Gary Green II So. 5-9/175
Jerome Kemp Sr. 5-10/200
Michael McCoy CB Jr. JC 5-11/185
Sadiq Muhammed S Jr. 1V 6-0/190
Olaitan Oguntodu S Fr. HS 6-0/200
Dominic Roux CB Sr. 2V 5-11/180*
Brian Seymour S Jr. 1V 6-1/190
Phillip Strozier CB Fr. HS 6-0/190
Darrell Stuckey S Fr. RS 6-1/200
Aqib Talib CB So. 1V 6-2/190
Justin Thornton S Fr. RS 6-1/185
Anthony Webb CB Fr. HS 6-0/175

Kemp was the only undersized starter.

I don't think that's correct. I believe we have one left.
