Kansas Football Recruiting: What Went Wrong on Signing Day

The Kansas Jayhawks brought in a strong recruiting class of 26 junior college and high school football players. Some of the guys, will be counted on to play right away for head coach Charlie Weis as they look to improve upon last season’s 1-11 record. However, the recruiting class didn’t hit upon everything the team lacked. Here are some of the classes weaknesses:

Question mark at quarterback: The duo of Montell Cozart and Jordan Darling, have potential to be good, yet each have their downfalls. Jake Heaps is awaiting his turn next season after sitting out a season at the position, per NCAA rules from his transfer from BYU. Michael Cummings also returns, looking to improve upon last season’s freshman campaign.

Secondary problems: Another spot where Kansas addressed their problem yet failed to follow through with it. Isaiah Johnson is an elite JUCO prospect who will step in right away. Yet other then Johnson, Cassius Sendish and Kevin Short, a first-team NJCAA cornerback, the Jayhawks lacked depth.

Short, almost changed his mind at the last minute, only to affirm his stance with Weis and the Jayhawks once again on Wednesday. He announced earlier on in the day, his intentions of signing with New Mexico.
