Missouri is pretty loaded for 2018. It's as deep as I've seen MO be with prospects in a long time.

Outside of Emery, there's not many KS FBS prospects that I've seen floated around.

JaMarr Chase picked up an LSU offer.

Offered 4 star safety Isaiah Humphries - current Penn State commit.

Offered 3 star WR Carson Schleker from Allen, TX. He's short (5'8"), but he's got a nice offer list.

Not a great day for KU recruiting with Trae choosing OU and now Jenkins flipping.

Neither is overly surprising, though.

Yeah sucks if we've indeed lost Jenkins.

Was hoping he'd come up to KU for a visit or two during the spring and/or summer so we could shore up his commitment as he wasn't one of the Junior day visitors nor has he ever been up to Lawrence or seen KU up close. He seemed to commit because of who else had committed to us the prior weekend.

This thing is gonna be a wild ride and today was a down one it would appear.

Also, it seems that LSU is now going after more of their in-state prospects with official offers since KU's big recruiting weekend. KU's Junior Day haul may have been a little kick in their ass to get more aggressive in their own local recruiting efforts.

So we don't have six 4 stars anymore? Dam it I knew we couldn't keep most of them. But it took a week of reflection for two of the saviors

Can we get 1/3 salary increase back from Hull? No?

Hey I think I know how to get a salary increase!!! It works.

Jenkins won't be the last of the current LA recruits. The group of LA players that committed together calling themselves the "Boot Boys" felt too much like the "Dream Team" debacle.

Also i'd rather see Self recruit players that are not projected lottery picks. How do we know Udoka Azubuike will come back next year? Just because he's hurt doesn't mean the pro teams will skip over him.

It does remind me of the dream team. We'll see how it works out.

Don't know why the Udoka part is here. But he has to be back as he will not be 19 by the draft this year. And NBA rules state players have to be 19 to be selected. He is a 2 year player. Which is why Self hated to lose him because now he basically only gets 1 year instead of the 2 that was possible.

As much as I love comparing anything to our amazing former head coach, this comparison has holes. The dream team all committed, stayed committed, and made it to campus. The problem was what they did or didn't do when they got here. They took scholarships, and then proceeded to provide no benefit to the team.

Martin, Combs, Thomas, Hyman, Faifili, Coleman, MJM, Goeas, Darling, Fondal, Johnson, Slater, Short, Bolton, Johnson, Bloomfield were all part of that 2013 "dream team" class and failed to make it to a senior year at KU. Many of them had absolutely zero on-field impact at KU.

At least with decommits, we can add a different scholarship player in the class.

The two (so far, it's been a week) decommits gave the posters above some temporary hope of a brighter future and had zero on-field impact in the end. Temporary hope = Dream Team similarities, dgless. Only you took it to mean something about our "amazing former head coach". Keep kicking him, it's all his fault!

The program is getting played by the recruits as bait for a better offer. It should be expected.
What bothers me more is that Ped State has the number one ranking. Our punishment for hiring two crap coaches in a row is worse then their covering up the crap they committed. Life's not fair. If Beaty doesn't succeed we may as well hire Briles to take over. At least we might get some winning football teams.

I looked up 247 2018 team recruiting rankings (Friday) and we are listed at #9 with six verbal commits, 2 four stars listed. Hopefully, we aren't going to see more slippage (decommits) as kids will be kids at 16-7 years of age.

I agree, that Ped State comment especially.
