The linebacker from Lawrence will join his brother in Crimson and Blue this fall.

NCAA Football: Kansas at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports


Dineen was the first in-state player to commit to the Jayhawks for this class. Interest in him picked up after he received the offer from KU, but with his brother Joe already suiting up for the Jayhawks, this sure seemed like a slam dunk. Jay will join a crowded linebacker corps at KU, but starting positions should be up for grabs, meaning he will definitely get every opportunity to #EarnIt.
