On the field Kansas football is leaving a little to be desired through two games this season. Have things improved? I would personally lean toward yes, but it's also clear that we have a long way to go.
With that in mind we turn toward the recruiting front and an area that will be a key piece to any rebuilding job by Charlie Weis. While this is probably an over-hyped area in any college sport, it does tend to give a strong indication as to the direction of a program. Recruiting isn't the only way to improve, but improvement probably won't come without the ability to find the right players for a system and a program.
This weekend Kansas kicks off Big 12 play and they will host a handful of recruits that could have an impact as Jayhawks. Jayhawkslant.com is reporting that both Marquel Combs and Marcus Jenkins-Moore will be on campus for official visits.
Combs is a big defensive tackle that has a huge list of offers and recently parted ways with Ole Miss, the team he had originally committed to. Jenkins Moore is a linebacker prospect and based on some of the early season results, Kansas could use some additional depth at this position.
Jayhawkslant is reporting that Kansas will play host to several other recruits this weekend including wideout Hunter Jarmon out of Waco. Check out the Slant or check back here for additional updates on expected visitors.
