Kansas Football Head Coach Les Miles and his staff rounded out their second recruiting class yesterday by adding several new faces to the program during National Signing Day.

The newest Jayhawks include:

The biggest surprise of the day was when JaCobee Bryant announced that he was signing with Kansas. Just last week he decommitted from the program but now ends up as one of the biggest signings of the class.

While it was a solid finish to the recruiting cycle, the group didn’t quite live up to the ballyhooed class it appeared to be in the fall prior to the Early Signing Period thanks to the decommitments of a few of their top recruits and other schools gaining ground.

In early December the class was ranked No. 31 nationally and third in the Big 12, according to Rivals.com. The class currently ranks No. 47 nationally and No. 7 in the Big 12. This just goes to show how verbal commitments mean very little in the world of recruiting.

Regardless, KU has their building blocks for the future. And with the lack of depth at certain positions, losing players to graduation, and players transferring, many of these incoming freshman will have a chance to make their impact right away.

Most importantly, this class was put together entirely of high school recruits. No recruits came from the junior college ranks – which is a clear, intentional move by the coaching staff (that should be applauded) to build this roster the right way and to help solve the scholarship deficit caused by previous coaching staffs.

The staff will now turn their attention to the 2021 class, which currently ranks No. 29 overall and No. 4 in the Big 12 with four commitments. Many of those recruits will be on campus the next couple months and during the second annual “Late Night Under the Lights” spring game event that Miles announced yesterday would be on Saturday, April 18.

Being a Kansas fan was never a choice for me. In fact, my dad told me that a KU basketball game was on TV while I was being born. I guess it was fate! I grew up in Topeka, KS surrounded by a family full of Jayhawks. When it came time for me to go to college there was only one place I applied and only one place I wanted to go – KU. I grew up playing basketball and baseball and still attempt to play to this day. Although, I’ve now fully embraced the slow pitch softball phase of my life. If you follow me on Twitter you’ll notice I’m an equally passionate Kansas City Chiefs fan and a supporter of all KC sports. Rock Chalk!
