2011 Recruiting

I will confess that I am far from a football recruiting junkie, but It looks like the new coaching staff is already making inroads with recruiting. Scout list 9 prospect in the top 150 that include Kansas on their list of prospective schools. several are even 5-star prospects. Not sure if we have ever had interest from a 5-star. And none of the players listed by Scout include the half dozen Kansas HS players that ESPN list in the top 150 watch list. As good as the previous 2 classes were, my guess is that the next few classes end up being significant steps forward.

After the jump, the 9 prospect from the Scout top 150.
