  • Brian - any chance you could get\give a good synopsis of the current KU class. It's been a whirlwind week and we need a bit of a "catch me up" breakdown.

  • There has been a lot of action lately. Here's a recap of the latest commits.

    -L.A. Pierce DT Marquel Combs: Simply put, this is one of the biggest commitments for KU in years. He is the No. 3 overall junior college prospect in the country and had offers from pretty much every program in the country. He is probably a 3-tech DT when he gets to KU and is a very effective pass rusher from the interior.

    -Arizona Western DB Cassius Sendish: Arizona Western had 6 or 7 DI defensive backs this year but Sendish was one of the ones I was highest on. He can play either corner or safety depending on where he is needed.

    -Navarro (TX) College OT Zach Fondal: He was an Arkansas commit but really enjoyed his official visit to Lawrence last month. Arkansas also wasn't quite sure if they could get him in at midterm so it all worked out well for KU. I saw Navarro in person this year but Fondal was out with an injury. He passed the eyeball test, though, and I also remember him from HS. He has a really lean frame with plenty of room to fill out so, if KU can afford to do so, I could see him being redshirted.

    -Iowa Western S/OLB Isaiah Johnson: Johnson plays safety for IWCC and was an HM All-American but he could also end up playing linebacker as he's a bigger kid that moves well. He was fairly active against the run when I saw him in person vs. Trinity Valley this year. He also took a medical redshirt last year so is the rare recruit that has four years to play three.

    -Iowa Western OG Mike Smithburg: He is a bit undersized but he has a nonstop motor. He really saw his stock take off over the course of the Reivers' national championship season. His size is definitely a concern to me but it will be interesting to see if he can make the adjustment to the Big 12.

    -Garden City (KS) C.C. WR Rodriguez Coleman: I honestly don't know much about Coleman other than the fact he is a big receiver at 6-3 and his film is pretty impressive. He is a big target in the red zone and good on the fade routes. His is from Cincinnati and signed with Cincy out of HS.
