Early Signing Period Podcast: Kansas Jayhawks Football Commit Jayden Russell

The most vocal commit joins the podcast to answer some burning questions.

It’s the first day of the Early Signing Period, and today we have a special treat for you. I was recently able to talk to Jayden Russell, the most outspoken member of this KU class, and I learned a little bit about how Les Miles is convincing these guys to join him in rebuilding the program. It was a lot of fun to hear his perspective, and I hope you enjoy listening.

Topics discussed:

What drew you to KU?

What was Les Miles’ pitch like?

Was KU on your radar before Les Miles was hired?

How many of the recent commits heard from you before announcing?

How has Early Signing Day changed the recruiting process for you and other students?

What is your position, and where do you see yourself fitting in?

What is the best opportunity for you to make an immediate impact?

Who do you model your game after?

Who was recruiting you the hardest before Coach Miles came to KU?

Has anyone else tried to contact you after committing to see if you might change your mind?

Your best recruiting pitch.
