Kansas Picks Up a Commitment at Linebacker

As KC eluded to the Jayhawks have added a major pickup in an area of need.  Jayhawkslant is reporting the commitment of Trayvon Henry out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Henry reported offers from Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Colorado and Texas Tech among others.  At one point this fall he actually committed to the OU staff but the OU Staff asked him to wait.  From the sounds of things Kansas and Bill Miller stayed on him, the relationship developed and this is a big plus at the linebacker spot for the future. 

Henry measures 6'2" 220 and runs in the 4.6 forty range so he should be able to bring the athleticism at linebacker that the Big 12 is now commanding.  This is just another example of the Jayhawk staff stepping up the level of recruiting and going after some big targets.  Sure it's not as if we truly beat out OU, but this will be the third such commit that OU has shown serious interest in and this one for sure is an example of one they had offered.

One other item of note: Jimmay Mundine, who KC reported on, did pick up a high three star rating from rivals so that makes two 3* linebackers added to the position for the Jayhawks.  Also I think it's KU08 who might be interested to note that Henry is but another "Fighting 5.7".

Update #2....Strong hints that this might not be the end.
