Jordan Darling might have already committed to the Kansas Jayhawks, but that does not mean he still cannot impress the Kansas staff.
Darling committed to Kansas back in early June. The other two teams in his Top 3 were Kansas State and Baylor with Kansas and Kansas State being the only two of these three to offer at Darling. Darling is currently the starting quarterback at Shawnee Mission East High School in Prairie Village, Kansas.
Darling put up some impressive numbers on Thursday night in Shawnee Mission East’s second game of the season. He went 17-31 for 266 yards and three touchdowns in the 30-7 victory over Olathe North High School. This was the first time that Shawnee Mission State has defeated Olathe North since 1988.
Darling and the Lancers are now 2-0 to start the season. However, the Lancers will have a very tough schedule throughout the month of September. During the rest of the month, they will play the entire city of Olathe with a big game against Olathe South on September 20th. The Falcons of Olathe South will feature an “iron man” player who could be arguably the best prospect in the 2014 recruiting class, Braden Smith.
If Darling continues to play like he has in the first two games of the season, the Lancers could have their first successful season in a long time. More importantly, Darling could be starting to make a name for himself with the Jayhawk nation before he attends Kansas next year.
