Brock Berglund Officially Signs With Kansas

New, 52 comments

In the old but good to be official news category, Kansas has announced the singing of Brock Berglund to a financial aid agreement and Turner Gill has confirmed that he will be on campus and enrolled this Spring.

Thus begins a three way quarterback competition for next fall.  If he had to say today, Gill probably goes with Jordan Webb.  But it's clear that Berglund is a player that they see a bright future in, and perhaps a future that could begin as soon as next fall.

"Brock is the ideal student-athlete we want in our program, he has proven that he is a winner.  He not only has great football skills, but he possess great vision and tremendous leadership abilities."
