Like this pickup and not just because I like his film and measurables, but also because I like that we're getting into Arkansas. We've ignored that state for the most part for recruiting and I think we could snag 1 or 2 good recruits out of there virtually every year if we had tried.

Welcome to the Jayhawk family Mr. Withers!

Deldrick Withers is a 6'4" 245lbs. SDE out of Robinson HS in Little Rock, AR in case anyone didn't know or seen this info before.

"As a junior starter at Robinson High, Withers recorded 76 tackles, including 32 for loss, 8 sacks, 1 forced fumble and a fumble recovery." (KUSports)
Think about that.
I don't think I've ever seen that high a ratio of tackles for loss compared to total tackles for a guy who played a high number of snaps.

Excellent size for a high-schooler. Must have a little speed to go along with it.

Another good add topper! And a second commit from Arkansas. TE position is a very important one in our O scheme, especially if you have questions with pass pro on your line.

Nah! I'd just follow CDC advice and have the kids socially distance. With rules like that we might even manage to score some serious points! laugh

Unfortunately, we've had some QB's that social distanced the ball from receivers.

True! Hard to believe that we are more than decade removed from Reesing. One thing the government won't have to worry about is large crowds at Old Memorial.....

Madden, college version.
Injury free virtual football.
In which case we'll suck at that too.

Now we're talkin! Building our lines will build our stats in the W column.
Sounds like a really cool kid. Fun guy. A 300 lb fun guy to put right in the center of things. Center a very important position.

KU recruiting on a roll! Another good get yesterday.
http://www2.kusports.com/news/2020/may/0...ommit/?football
"Andrew Simpson, a three-star linebacker from St. John Bosco High in northern California, became the second defensive player in the 2021 recruiting class to commit to the Kansas football program on Saturday night."
"Primarily recruited by KU assistant coach Chidera Uzo-Diribe, the 6-foot-1, 218-pound outside linebacker said his bond with Uzo-Diribe, along with the connection he made the rest of the Kansas coaching staff, inspired him to make the call to join the Jayhawks.

“I wanted to go somewhere I was really wanted,” Simpson told Jon Kirby of JayhawkSlant.com. “And Kansas made me feel like I could come in immediately and make an impact. I feel like Coach Les Miles and Coach Diribe are great people, and we developed a strong relationship. They just made it feel right to commit there.”

"Simpson becomes the 10th commitment in KU’s current recruiting class, joining Mena, Ark., defensive end Deldrick Withers as the only two defensive players on the list to date.

The rest of KU’s class includes Lawrence High running back Devin Neal; Brownsburg (Ind.) High quarterback Ben Easters; Little Rock, Ark., defensive end Deldrick Withers; Mena, Ark., tight end Mason Brotherton and Jaddai Henry, Majik Rector and Kelan Robinson, who are all wide receivers from Texas."

That's a strong start to another good recruiting class for KU. Things are looking up for Jayhawk football!
