They are identifying talent, just have to keep them on board, which is hard to do right now with latest performance on the field.
By latest performance you mean if a HC can’t win in three years, the kids wonder why take a high risk chance.

That sounds familiar, a Juco that recruits others and never hits the field. Oh those Jucos...

Rivals shows RB Anthony Williams headed to Nebraska for a visit this weekend. Looks like the Louisianimals are abandoning ship. Rivals has
Cartez Crook Jones taking a visit to KSU this weekend.

Lucky for us Girod is confident in Zengers vision for KU football because otherwise I might start to get worried.

F@(kin A! This is the problem with giving Beaty another year. The recruits are not seeing any progress and they don't want to jump on board a foundering ship. Losing seasons will hurt recruiting more than changing coachs.

Wrong.

Smith and Crook-Jones both have qualifying issues from what I heard. Believe KU told both to hold off on visiting or signing a LOI to KU until they know if they will qualify or not because if they sign a LOI and don't qualify that initial scholarship is gone. KU can't afford to lose even 1 initial scholarship that way with our still below average roster numbers as well as a relatively small signing class for 2018.

It looks like both are now weighing their options and looking to see if other schools are willing to take the risk in letting them sign a LOI now versus in February assuming they qualify. Else, they're both probably going to go the JUCO route.

I'd prefer for both guys to qualify and then go ahead and sign with KU as both are talented players, but time will tell.

Strange as he's playing in his state championship game this weekend. It must be a very short truncated visit if he's also going to visit them.

He's not visiting this weekend. Believe KU has told him to hold off for now due to the reasons I mentioned in my post above.

Still why pull his oral commitment? I understand KU not wanting to sign him if he wouldn't be eligible. However he just would not have to sign.

According to RIVALS website, KU football team recruiting rankings for 2018 has dropped from #45 to # 57. I always look at the trends, downward, in this case.

The trend to look for is player development. DB has not recruited the worst classes in the FBS the past few years.....so why the hell are we the very worst team?

Lack of Coaching ability, Lack of understanding of game day play calling, Doesn't know what an AIR RAID offense is, can't develop players, ect.

Benton Smith's article does not mention anything about qualifying issues for Josh Smith.

Not sure why he posted on twitter he reopened his recruiting, other than to see what schools came calling and what his options are.
