It's going to be a busy day today, and by the time most of you read this, many of our recruits will have already sent in their signed letters of intent. We also picked up a trio of new recruits late in the day yesterday. I'm not really sure how everyone is going to fit in, as we only have room in the class for 16 signings today, but there are 18 committed for those spots. Sounds like an exciting game of musical chairs, right?
Regardless of how it all is going to work out, we have you covered with information on all the prior recruits, and we'll be trying to get you some info on the new ones too.
First things first, here is the current schedule of signings for our commits (as of mid-day yesterday), courtesty of Jayhawk Slant
Scheduled Festivities (all times Jayhawk time):
|Will send in to KU prior to ceremony
|Expects to sign and send in sometime before ceremony
|Might send letter before ceremony
These recruits committed after the Jayhawk Slant piece was published. Their plans for signing day are not immediately known.
Cameron Durley, OL - He reached out to Beaty yesterday evening. He said he may not sign on Signing Day, in order to allow his school to plan some sort of celebration. He is the first player from his school to be a Division I commit. We can expect him to sign by Thursday or Friday.
John Chamberlin, OL - He announced late last night that he would be attending KU. There hasn't been any word on his schedule for signing day.
Marnez Ogletree, CB/KR - Jayhawk Slant is reporting that his commitment isn't 100% confirmed. We should know something this morning.
Can't 100% confirm Ogletree to Kansas yet. Likely goes into the morning. Would be a good get. Talented player at key position #kufball

It also looks like we already lost a player who signed, as Michael Mathis will not be coming to KU.
There will be more news all throughout the day, and don't forget to check back frequently for our continuing profiles of the guys that we are expecting to sign today.
