David Beaty made a splash on the recruiting trail last week, so let's take a quick look at what next year's class currently looks like.
|Dominic Williams||RB||5'8" 185 lbs||***||Frisco, TX|
|Travis Jordan||WR||6'2" 185 lbs||***||Marrero, LA|
|Reggie Roberson||WR||6'0" 180 lbs||***||Mequite, TX|
|Takulve Williams||WR||6'0" 199 lbs||***||New Orleans, LA|
|Joseph Gilbertson||OL||6'3" 284 lbs||**||Wichita, KS|
|Kyron Johnson||LB||6'1" 188 lbs||***||Arlington, TX|
|Jay Dineen||LB||6'2" 215 lbs||**||Lawrence, KS|
|Michael Lee||CB||5'10" 165 lbs||***||New Orleans, LA|
|Robert Topps||CB||6'2" 180 lbs||***||Chicago, IL|
|Akayleb Evans||CB||6'1" 175 lbs||***||Mckinney, TX|
This information is per 247Sports. It should be noted that Michael Lee is a four-star recruit by Rivals and ESPN.
Also per 247Sports, Kansas currently has the #57 overall class in the country and #7 in the Big 12. One more thing to keep in mind is that all of these commits are verbals - these kids still have until February before they can sign.
Beaty and his staff have issued 145 scholarship offers so far. This includes offers to kids to have verballed somewhere else by this point in time; it doesn't mean that they're recruiting 145 different guys right now.
Some guys who have Kansas offers to keep an eye on:
|Jordan Hill||WR||6'3" 180 lbs||***||Crosby, TX|
|Chance McLeod||TE||6'3" 233 lbs||***||Victoria, TX|
|Eleasah Anderson||OL||6'3" 280 lbs||***||Houston, TX|
|Grant Polley||OL||6'4" 265 lbs||***||Denton, TX|
|George Hunter||DB||6'1" 170 lbs||NR||Delray Beach, FL|
Grant Polley was a verbal to KU but backed out last month. He has yet to verbal to anyone else.
I'd look for Beaty to add at least one quarterback to this class, however, what it really needs at this point is another two or three offensive linemen and several defensive linemen as well. Let's hope the Jayhawks can win a couple of games, point to some positive momentum, and get some more guys interested in playing their college football on the Kaw.
