Charlie Weis was announced as the head coach for Kansas football just under a week ago. Since that time he has been busy recruiting his coaching staff and high school talent. Today Weis lands his first commitment with Bishop Miege athlete Tre Parmalee.
Parmalee comes from a strong football pedigree as his dad is Bernie Parmalee is the current tight ends coach for the Kansas City Chiefs. The elder Parmalee was also on the Notre Dame staff with Weis and obviously the younger Parmalee was coached by new Kansas offensive line coach Tim Grunhard at Bishop Miege.
The connections obviously opened the door for Kansas and made Parmalee reconsider his previous commitment to Northern Illinois. While he hasn't received a lot of attention, the Kansas staff obviously has a very good working knowledge of Parmalee and they were quick to jump at the opportunity to add the local Kansas City talent.
