Jordan Tavai Officially Joins The Kansas Jayhawks

The defensive line position has the potential to see some significant improvement between improvement to the offseason training program and an influx of competition due to some new faces. One of those individuals that Kansas has been waiting on is junior college transfer Jordan Tavai.

Per Charlie Weis via twitter, Tavai is on campus and practicing. This will be a player and a position to watch. Obviously Tavai is going to be playing catch up and he's competing with players that have had the benefit of the improved S&C focus, but he is also the player that Weis seemed most excited about on the defensive side of the ball when rounding out the last recruiting class.

ESPN.com points to Tavai as a player that Kansas can expect an immediate impact from. Weis has said that Tavai could play inside or outside in the front four rotation depending on the team needs. This is one step in the process, now Tavai has to beat out the competition that has already been at work for the last eight months.
