David McComb is proving to be another gem for Kansas football on the recruiting trail. According to the ESPN 300, McComb is now a 4-star prospect and ranked inside the top 300, coming in at No. 247 in the 2025 recruiting class.
McComb committed to Kansas football back in late July after going on an unofficial visit to KU. McComb is a 6-foot-4 quarterback from Edmond, Oklahoma, which is oddly enough the same hometown of legendary Kansas basketball coach Bill Self.
His commitment came as a surprise to many as there is not a lot of attention being spent on the 2025 recruiting cycle yet for most schools. Kansas’ QB coach Jim Zebrowski put in great work to find McComb and made him feel like a priority. McComb has some pretty inspiring film and statistics as a junior and has a prototypical Power 5 quarterback frame.
A quote from McComb via 247 Sports mentioned how he felt at home on his first visit to Lawrence during the summer. “I knew I wanted to play here,” McComb said. “I talked to Coach Z about it afterward. We took it slower because he didn’t want me to have the visit high and rush into things. So we talked about it. We got my mom up here and that was the other factor. I just wanted to make sure she loved it as much as I did. And she did love it a lot today.”
As it stands right now, McComb is the highest-rated QB commit in the Lance Leipold era. The future of the Kansas quarterback room is bright, and it will be interesting to monitor the competition in the post-Jalon Daniels and Jason Bean era. The 2024 class also holds a commitment from Isaiah Marshall.
McComb will now turn his focus to recruiting more offensive talent to be by his side in the 2025 class, most notably 4-star and top-100 wide receiver Isaiah Mozee, who was in Lawrence for the historic upset over No. 6 Oklahoma and included the Jayhawks in his final eight.
