Kansas Football Recruiting: 4* Cornerback Kenneth Crawley

Crawley_mediumA quick glance at the Kansas roster gives you a pretty clear picture in terms of the opportunity at the cornerback position. One player that Kansas fans have been following of late is 4* corner Kenneth Crawley out of Washington DC. After what seemed like some back and forth, it appears that per Crawley's twitter feed, that he is on his way to Kansas for a visit and that has to be viewed as positive news.

Now this could be viewed as a positive for a variety of reasons. First off what does Crawley mean by official? Official visit? Officially a Jayhawk? At last check the former Tennessee commit was set to announce his decision on January 25th. This would be the last weekend before that time and Kansas is competing with Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan State, Oklahoma and Ohio State according to Rivals.com.

Now most seem to think that Colorado is the real competition here because that is the school that his high school teammates Johnny Walker (Weis and staff recruited) and De'Jon Wilson (former Kansas commit) are currently committed to. Walker is also a corner and Wilson is a defensive tackle or end. Now based on the tweet the second question becomes, who is "we"? It's very possible that Crawley is simply using "we" in an innocent "me" type way. It could be family as well. But what if Crawley, Walker and Wilson all want one last look at Kansas?

The playing time is there for all three at their respective positions, but it sure would seem like this would take one epic sales job late in the process to pull off.
