Kansas football could be in line for another big recruiting week if they can get wide receiver Nick Marsh to commit.

The Kansas Jayhawks coaching staff has been busy on the recruiting trail lately. They have 10 verbal commits in the Class of 2024, six of which came in this past week.

Could Nick Marsh take this recruiting class to the next level?

Marsh, a 6-foot-3 wide receiver from Michigan, included Kansas and four other schools in his top five a week ago. Penn State and Michigan State were considered the initial favorites to land him, but there are murmurs that the Jayhawks could convince him to play in Lawrence.

The No. 54 ranked player in the nation on Rivals, Marsh’s official visit began today on Thursday, June 15. Some other top targets will be on campus with him in the next few days, but the coaching staff will likely prioritize a player who could be the highest-ranked high school commit for Kansas in a decade.

He is a physical specimen dominating everywhere he’s played at the high school level. His combination of size and speed should make him a potential NFL draftee after he finishes college.

Like fellow Jayhawk commits Isaiah Marshall and Jalen Todd, Marsh stems from the Detroit area. The Michigan pipeline to Kansas football is starting to become a real thing for Lance Leipold and company.

It’s not too likely that he commits to Kansas, but the spot that KU is in right now is much better than where they were a few weeks ago. The general consensus is that they sit No. 2 or No. 3 on his list. Hopefully, the Jayhawks coaching staff can persuade him to commit by the end of his visit this weekend.
