KU lands top QB recruit

Lance Legendre is the nation’s #8 dual-threat QB.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Once again, Kansas football picked up an early oral commitment from an impressive recruit. Lance Legendre is a 4-star recruit out of, you guessed it, New Orleans, home of several high profile recruits who committed to David Beaty, Tony Hull and company last year. Unfortunately, most of those recruits ultimately spurned the Jayhawks, so keeping Legendre in crimson and blue will be a high priority for a staff that hasn’t seen much in the way of good quarterback play.

Legendre, 6’2” 205 lbs, has a very impressive list of offers, most notably from Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, and Missouri (per 247). He’s labeled a dual threat quarterback, and recruiting services label him a three or four star player, depending on which one you read. He appears to be a consensus top-400 player nationally.

Legendre, 6’3”, 205 lbs, is currently the highest-rated quarterback in the state of Louisiana for the 2019 class, and a top-10 dual threat quarterback nationally. According to JayhawkSlant, he is the highest-rated quarterback recruit for Kansas since Rivals began recording ratings in 1999.

Legendre is KU’s first verbal commit for the 2019 class.

Early signing day isn’t until December, which means that the bigger programs still have plenty of time to change his mind, something we saw plenty of during the last recruiting cycle.
