Morning Update

Hopefully this will become a more frequent occurrence, but some days it is hard to throw up an entire thread worthy of Jayhawk news. In any case, let's get it going.

Kansas is not landing the blue-chip studs that Jayhawks fans may have expected following last fall's success, but Mark Mangino is building another quality class filled with solid, system-fitting prospects. The commitment this week from defensive end Kevin Young (Olathe, Kan./North), one of the top-rated defensive prospects from Kansas, is a good example.

The Jayhawks' defensive staff may have seen what we saw in Young -- a kid with tons of physical upside and a great motor for getting after the quarterback. On film, his 6-foot-4, long, chiseled frame is dripping with potential, and he has good acceleration to go with it. Young lacks ideal fluidity and needs some positional polish, but he will be at a program that does a good job of developing talent.
