If it happens I will be applauding! If it doesn't pan out, the salary increases roll back, right?

Still all committed. We also made the top 7 or 4 of a couple of others out of The Boot.

Kelvin Joseph, the #1 recruit out of Louisiana according to Rivals has scheduled a visit to KU now. Probably a long shot, but getting him to come visit is still a VERY BIG DEAL IMHO. I also think it improves our odds of getting him once he comes and sees things here for himself. Still a tough one to get no matter what. It's also nice that he mentions KU, Alabama, and Florida State as his first 3 visits set up. (His tweet about the 3)

Harris has actually been having some fun with fans of other schools on twitter about his commitment to KU. I think this kid is as solid on KU right now as any of our current commitments.

Jason hasn't been talking much about his commitment or recruiting in general, but he's still committed. I also think he and Harris are close which helps things out as like I said, I think Harris is solid right now.

Oh, and Pooka Williams just finished 3rd in the Louisiana state HS track and field championships with a jump of 6'4". Not bad for a kid who stands at 5'9". I think he's just as solid on KU as Harris is too. This kid is probably our sleeper of the Louisianimals right now IMHO. He's a physical beast for his size.

Let's point out that, the dream team coach had a fully guaranteed contract (which cost nearly 8.5M for him not to coach).

Beaty, one of the lowest paid power five coaches, would only be owed $3M if he receives a "no cause" firing.

Similarly, he's financially attached to KU. If Beaty chooses to leave prior to Dec. 31, 2018, he would be responsible for a $3 million buyout. That amount drops to $2 million in 2019-20 and $1 million in 2021.

Maybe because Beaty hasn't sent out a #NeatDeal? Then you have to ask yourself why Beaty wouldn't tweet neat deal and my guess is that it's because they want him to be a blue shirt and play for KU this season. That's why I think it is best if you take down your post. Your post will alert other teams to go after him. After all we did lose 2 OLs and 2 DTs to poaching in the last recruiting class.

Heard it's not "official" yet, so coach Beaty can't say anything cause of NCAA rules. I think it'll become official toward the end of July or so.

Also, Pizzanbeer is right in that he's technically fair game for any other school to recruit him until the time it becomes official. Have heard the kid is 100% on KU though, and it sounds like he's shut down his recruitment now. He sounds like the type who's made up his mind and it isn't changing.

Since the cat's out of the bag I would guess Tovi plays at guard and Bragg moves to center due to Gibson and Ribordy having injuries. I read that Gibson has a serious injury and Ribordy has a knee injury that kept him out of spring football.

Ribordy was hurt early in spring, but it wasn't expected to keep him out long term. He'll be ready for the season.

Gibson is done. Career-ending neck injury according to Keegan.

Curious if Hannon will work into the starting lineup.

It is good to see Beaty adding bigger players on OL. Hannon weighs 315 and Tovi 320. That should help our running game especially close to the goal line and 3rd and short and 4th and short.

Sounds like Tuvi will have 4 years to play 3, and he plans to be here this summer.

I'm sorry but there is no way Tovi is only 320lbs. If I had to guess, I'd say he's closer to the 340-350 range. Dude is built like a brick wall but it looks like he can move around very well. He's going to need to slim down a bit as soon as he arrives. Put him next to Baldwin though and the right side of the line is going to be pushing everyone around.

The Pima Community College roster lists Tovi at 310.
