Is he eligible to play this season? JW article really didn't specify.


Yeah. He will have four years to use his three years of playing eligibility.

A Florida kid who may be interested in staying closer at Florida Southern. But sounds like a good offer for Kansas to make.
FYI, Florida Southern doesn't play football... At least since 1935.


We should steal their recruits like OU steals ours.

Andru Tovi is a 6'3", 320ish pound guard that transferred in from Pima CC.

http://www.hudl.com/profile/3887256/andru-tovi

He's expected to compete for playing time at one of the guard positions.

It is nice to see Beaty add a road grader on OL. That should lead to more success when we run it up the middle. I would take a few more OL about that size to add depth when we need to push DTs out of the way.

Pretty "neat deal" to get a guy like that as a walk on.

I don't believe he's a walk on.

I highly doubt it as well dgless. A guy with offers isn't likely to walk on.

Yeah, I believe he was what you call in NCAA parlance "an unrecruited athlete" which more or less means, KU couldn't talk about him or actively recruit him. No in-home visits allowed nor any official visit to KU, etc. He could make an unofficial visit on his own. He could also stay in contact with the coaches on his own with some very limited contact initiated by KU was allowed, bot otherwise he was free game for any program to recruit and try to sign right up until the day he enrolled in classes or took part in team practices at KU.

99% of the time these types of recruits are Blue Shirts who have to pay their own way for the summer which means technically he's a walk-on right now. As soon as fall practices start though, he'll go on full financial support and be a full scholarship guy at KU from then on but his official scholarship won't start until the 2018 spring semester and he'll count against the 2018 class.

Oh, and I might add do to NCAA rule changes in recruiting, I believe this will be the last year for Blue Shirts or Gray Shirts, but not Red Shirts!

While the blue shirt rule is still available Beaty and Hull should use it to bring in some of our higher ranked recruits early like they did with Lee.

That'd be a good idea and I believe KU has and is looking at all options in this regard. I also believe Jason and Harris are going to both be December grads and possibly Tune and 1 other as well.

I guess I should qualify that as far as is known both Jason and Harris are believed to be December grads I'm sure if it's at all possible for either or both to qualify for graduation already and show up in Lawrence in August that the KU staff is working hard to make that happen.

I find it interesting and very cool that Kelvin Joseph's profile pic on twitter is still him in a KU uniform from his visit last weekend. Maybe there's more to it than just showing some respect or having some fun? He did after all stay an extra day and night in Lawrence that wasn't planned and I think his mother was on the visit with him.

Maybe not just coach Hull and Mike Lee are responsible for having an obvious positive impact on our Boot recruitin?

I'm really impressed to see Daylon Charlot's recent tweet about his decision to come to KU pinned at the top of his twitter page.

For those who either can't for some reason click on the link to the tweet or are just too lazy, here's what it says.

Daylon Charlot‏ @DaylonCharlot2

Best decision I feel like I've ever made was coming to KU..


That can't hurt recruiting other guys from Louisiana any.

I love how we're creating a pipeline from L-state to L-town!

Great information Kman! I was wondering how all that worked. With that said, how did the other schools be able to offer him?

Beaty has to win more games this season to help hold onto this class. I hope the coaches already are drawing up some winning game plans. Then have the players learn the basic game plans now so they have less to learn when the games roll around. Beaty and his coaches need to keep this recruiting class together and finish as strong as they started.
