3-star OL no longer part of KU football’s 2020 recruiting class. "A three-star offensive lineman from Iowa, Jackson Stoefen shared via Twitter that he no longer is committed to the Jayhawks."
" Stoefen became the fourth Class of 2020 prospect to cut ties with KU."
"The Jayhawks currently still have commitments in place from three other offensive linemen: Garrett Jones, Tommy Brandt and Nicholas Martinez." But I think Stoefen was maybe the jewel of that crown.


I don't understand this at all. He has been the biggest player recruiter this year. Did the 'Clones get to him?

Wait. WTH is going on? Brandt also flipped today? Only speculation I have seen that makes any sense at all is that Mile & CO. have flipped Corcoran and another OL. But still thought Stoefen was too good to let slip.

Tommy Brandt from St Thomas Academy decomitted tonight also. Before talking on the staff, let’s hope they did this to get bigger recruits.

" let’s hope they did this to get bigger recruits."

What exactly makes you think THEY DID THIS? You talking staff?
You don't think this is just something cooked up among the vacating recruits? This whole deal seems crazy to me. Improving our lines, both sides of the ball, are what we need most in order to become competitive.

i think the staff did this based off of what the kids are saying. Stoefen reiterated to 247Sports on Monday that the KU staff “is headed in a different direction at this time” and he decided to “look elsewhere” because it will be best for his future.

makes me think that either they found other OL's that fit the new RPO offense better, or the direction of the staff means choosing to run with a new offense and the kids didn't want to be a part of that style.

One benefit to the butt kicking by KSU was it showed Miles how much better our recruiting needs to be for our OL and DL.

That a thought.

That range of versatility would also indicate value for special teams play.

I do not quite understand why OL players would reject the idea of playing in an RPO style offense. Differing versions of RPO are becoming the norm in current NFL systems, which I would think should have strong influence on recruit's interest in developmental training. I assume interest in an NFL career opportunity is a given for a majority of college players.

Les Miles need to get Ky Thomas to de-commit to Kansas University. https://www.cjonline.com/sports/20191015/city-athlete-of-week-topeka-highs-ky-thomas. KU comitt Da'Vonshai Harden could influence Ky Thomas.

Other de-committ possibilities: Daniel Jackson, Johnny Wilson, and Turner Corcoran

Dontae Manning should stay close to home for more playing time.

Casey Collier de-committed from Minnesota and could sign with Kansas University.

It is interesting to watch Miles work on his recruiting strategy. It feels much more organized than recruiting under Beaty.

Our roster indicates we have a hefty number of OT bodies. Several are 3* recruits. We don't need more bodies. What we need is a boost in talent level.
Corcoran and Jackson might be a good fit for that criteria.

I haven't heard a word about QB Cade Fortin since his visit. Anyone find anything up to date on his status? He's said to be a pro style guy, so maybe it's a moot point.
On QB talk, I'm interested to see what we have in the kid coming in from Topeka.

Connor Finucane kind of intrigues me. I wonder if Miles wants him for OG or a large DE. Hopefully DE since we need more depth there.
