This weekend Kansas played host to a handful of recruits as they work toward rounding out the 2009 class and today they moved one step closer to that goal. The Jayhawkslant is reporting that Kansas has picked up it's first commitment following the weekend from 3 star receiving prospect DJ Beshears.
According to rivals Beshears originally committed to Gene Chizik and the Iowa State Cyclones but following the departure of Chizik began looking around. After taking his official this weekend to Kansas it was time to make the change and once again end his recruitment.
During his senior season DJ was on the recieving end for 88 catches totaling 1450 yards and 21 touchdowns. He is the third reciever in the class but the first slot type reciever for the 2009 group. If you have a chance to watch his film he has great game speed, seems to have spent a good amount of time in the spread and looks to have excellent field vision.
The addition of Beshears brings the 2009 Kansas football recruiting class up to 23 known commitments and with only a limited number of spots remaining the next few weeks will continue to be very fast paced and entertaining as we get closer to signing day.
