This is an EXTREMELY BIG DAY for KU football recruiting!!!!!!

These guys aren't just really really good, but they're game changers too. This made my day and made me completely forget about what happened in Allen today. Well, except I did love the acknowledgement of our All-Big 12 football guys and the love the crowd showed them. That was very good to see/hear.

Man, I'm still on cloud nine soaking this all in. These guys are the real deals.

This feels different than the early commits we got last year at about this time in a few different ways too. 1 is, they already had offers from tons and tons of P-5 schools already, including LSU and Alabama! Unlike last year, when those guys got a lot of other offers AFTER they had committed to KU.

Also, having their friend and former teammate Mike Lee on the team I think played big part in their commitments. Coach Hull is also the man! He's a good coach and is very honest and up front with these guys and recruits can feel that's the case. That goes a long way IMO. A lot of recruits do a lot of spinning and tell recruits what they want to hear and not the truth nor what they need to hear and I think the recruits can feel that and it builds a lot trust as it should.

Man, and this doesn't even cover Pooka Williams and Tune! I'd have been ecstatic if we'd only gotten their commitments today! Those are 2 really good players who I think will see their stock continue to rise. A lot of other schools are probably also going to come in hard on them now that they've committed to KU.

Let's hope KU can hold on to all 4 of the guys who've committed so far this weekend! Interestingly enough, I think it'll be easier (relatively speaking) for KU to hold on to The Whop and Jason than it will be for Tune and Williams. I think the 1st 2 guys have a strong bond with Mike Lee and coach Hull and that'll keep them committed. I'm very hopeful Williams and Tune feel the same kind of connection and level of commitment to the coaches and KU too!

Lastly, I also love the fact so many KU NFL guys and other former players have been hitting these guys up on twitter. Saw, Talib, Harris, Stuckey, Heeney, and Goodman among others giving these guys some love. Someone told me even a couple of KU NBA guys hit them up too. Man, as always, but even more so right now, IT'S A GREAT DAY TO BE A JAYHAWK!!

I'm pumped, can you tell!?!?!?

Curious if we'll get the last (I think) of the Louisiana recruits--Kenan Jones.

Not only is it relieving that Hull, Lee, Starks, Clark, Charlot, etc. have connections with these boys, but if I am reading things right Harris and Jason are high school teammates (and were with Lee) and then Brule and Chase are high school teammates. I think they'll do their parts keeping each other pumped up and ready to take their talents north!
