The recruiting grind continues on and Kansas has yet again landed a talented player in a key spot for the future. JayhawkSlant is reporting that 4 Star Junior College defensive end Quintin Woods has committed to Kansas starting in the 2009 season.
Woods came on as a bit of a surprise recruit of late visiting Lawrence for an official on the weekend of the 12th. Following the visit the folks over at the slant had been reporting that he was a heavy heavy Kansas lean, but with recruiting it's never over until it's over and it appears Woods has made it official. Woods will be looked to as a pass rusher for a Kansas defense that is looking for a consistent push up front. At 6'6" 245 pounds and 4.65 speed Woods fits the bill physically to do so. Initially committed to Michigan out of high school Woods will land on campus after wrapping up his time at Bakersfield CC in California.
Woods makes Kansas' 19th known commitment for the 2009 class and the 3rd four star rated player for Mark Mangino and the Jayhawks.
