Kansas football has another chance to land corner DeVonte Wilson, a former Ohio commit who the Jayhawks seem to be trending with.
Once again, Kansas football will have a chance to land a decommit, this time it’s DeVonte Wilson of Robert F. Munroe Day School in Florida. The Jayhawks seem to be the new favorite for Wilson, who was previously part of Ohio’s 2021 recruiting class.
As of now, Wilson holds offers from Liberty, Marshall, South Alabama, Western Kentucky, Florida Atlantic, Akron, and some others. When it comes to Power Five schools, Wilson has also received some attention from Texas Tech and Mississippi State.
Since announcing that he’ll be leaving Ohio’s class, two experts have already logged Crystal Ball predictions that favor Kansas. The experts combine for a perfect 14-for-14 when it comes to predicting the 2021 class, which is a good sign for the Jayhawks.
Based on his highlights, Wilson would be a great addition to Kansas football’s 2021 recruiting class. As a corner, he isn’t afraid to come up and hit somebody in the run game, and at six-foot-three and 190 pounds, opposing blockers bounce off him. Wilson also does a good job busting screens and jamming receivers at the line of scrimmage.
The Jayhawks’ 2021 recruiting class currently ranks No. 48 in the nation and No. 6 in the Big 12 conference according to Rivals. If Kansas can land a few more solid recruits, they could be looking at one of their better classes in recent memory, which would be pretty impressive for head coach Les Miles after just one 3-9 season.
Landing these undervalued recruits and coaching them up is what the KU staff will have to do, considering it’s nearly impossible for Kansas to land any blue-chip prospects. Wilson is one of those guys that could end up making a difference for the Jayhawks in a few years, and with any luck, he’ll commit very soon
