The sentiment seems to be that they are both gone to the NFL. I do not blame a kid that can go make big $$ - they can always return to school to finish up a degree later.

This would also explain the focus on DL recruits.

Any info appreciated.

If you support Kansas football (which I doubt), you shouldn’t be pressing this issue. Nothing more here to see, MTB.

I believe the coaches think at least 1 of them is probably gone and that's in part why they're going after so many JUCO DL right now. To try and have a quality guy that is ready to go right now to fill 1 or maybe 2 of the spots Wise and Armstrong would have held if they come back.

Heard a few other good P-5 schools are after a couple of our recent commits or new offer guys in the JUCO DL ranks and they didn't really get involved until after KU had offered them. Seems some fellow P-5 coaches believe this staff at least still knows how to identify talent and are trying to poach some of these guys now.

The word around west LFK is that Dorance is gone.

Hearing he'll go first or second round. Can't turn that kind of money down especially with how short-lived most NFL careers are.
One more year at KU won't greatly improve his stock or pay.

Haven't heard much on Wise. No one really seems to be certain on his draft value.

The word around West Lawrence isn't as meaningful as the word going on in the league and that was his stock pre crap year. The last I saw in rankings he's about the 10th ranked edge rusher, putting him likely nowhere close to Rd 1 or 2.

This is really funny coming from someone who has done everything in his power to make Beatty's recruiting efforts more difficult.

Personally, I'm happy for Wise and Armstrong. Both success stories.

But whatever blows your dress, KUCO.

I never said I don’t want program success, douche. Actually the exact opposite is my consistent view.

Put down the pipe and walk away.

Totally agree: for the sake of the program, you want them to stay. OTOH, we all understand the allure of making more money in a few years than most people will make in their entire lives. #can'tblamethekids
