  • @FarmerJayhawk I like him!

    Big visit week. Got an OL, LB, CB, and DE on campus.

    How about we just snag them all lol



  • ONCE AGAIN Faremer looks like you was 100 % correct - - From what I’ve seen within the last hour - -Jason Bean - - IS BACK - -THAT’S GREAT NEWS - - ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

    DE didn’t make it. Which makes the Phelps news even worse.

    Believe we snagged the LB though.

    Which DE? The one from Utah St??



  • @Woodrow yep. Going to Cincy instead

    So let’s see - - we lost the DE & Corner BUT got the Ol right Farmer ?



  • @jayballer67 yep, also got the LB. Both have 2 years left. Honestly I think Lovell (the OL) beats out Ford at guard. He’s a monster.

    ya after I read your post I went to TOS and saw we got our LB JB Brown - - -from Bowling Green. - your right Spencer Lovell is huge - -6’6 335 pounds-- was a Starter for Cal before he got hurt. - -Big day for our Hawks recruiting wise



  • @FarmerJayhawk What about Armaj Reed-Adams this season? Is this the year we finally see him get PT?

    If he isn’t going to play O, switch that big boy to the other side of the ball and see what happens lol.



  • @Kcmatt7 he’ll definitely be part of the rotation. Fuchs likes to roll with 8; 5 starters and 3 swing guys. I bet the 5 will be Brown, Lovell, Dirk, Puni, Cabledue, then ARA, Ford, and Baynes as rotation guys. Doiron could get some run since he has reps at center.



  • McGhee ✅



  • @FarmerJayhawk said in 2023 croots:

    McGhee ✅

    Yesssssssssssss



  • And Patrick Joyner



  • New RB Dylan McDuffie from Georgia Tech

  • Kansas lands class of 2023 CB Jacoby Davis

  • I wonder who got axed to make room for McDuffie? I thought we were out of spots. They could not renew a scholarship I suppose?

    Davis is a great pickup. At a position of need as well.

    I read that it could very well be our very inconsistent place kicker/fg kicker, - -talk he graduates soon so his scholli would be the one. - Huge get only thing wish he could be a couple inches taller, he get in coverage with some of the bigger receivers might be mismatch no matter. - there is a few 6’4 - -6’5 wide receivers pretty big disadvantage- - b toss it up - -hope not



  • @jayballer67 could be I suppose, assuming he graduated.

    I think I heard that he did



  • Doing a little catching up, KU has quietly put together a very nice walk on class, complete with a couple P5 transfers. Lots of guys with utility frames who could be DBs or LBs with some development. Dillon Mong could grow into a nice TE. My fav is Grady Seyfert from Beloit (NCK pride!). He’ll be a nice depth piece at DT or interior OL. Played both DT and G in high school, and Beloit has always had a really solid football program, much to my chagrin.

    Lots of talk of how our linebacking problems have been taken care of this season - - . Brother I think we can be sneaky good. - For one I think our offense is gonna be just as explosive as last year if NOT MORE I mean we are loaded I think in the receiver spot, not hurting at the RB. - What’s the Scoop on Mcduffie ? - -If I’m right he is the transfer from Georgia Tech running back. - -I think he might be able to take a few snaps-- I mean Neal & HiShaw fingers crossed he can stay healthy he is a animal.

    Think our O-Line is in solid shape - -just need to add some conditioning - - little weight / strength.

    Still think our main concern even though improved is our defense - -I hope we have gotten bigger taller. I t was so evident in the Arkansas game look at Arkansas players then our guys–just got out matched a lot of times - - need some physicality on the rush ends - - aggressive/mean - -I think gonna be exciting - - I’m stoked Farmer



  • @jayballer67 McDuffie is going to replace Ky Thomas’s snaps. So not a huge role, but depth in case Hishaw goes down again and to preserve Neal.

    I don’t think the defense is fixed, but I do think it’ll improve. Losing Lonnie really hurts. However! I love love love what they’ve done at corner. McGhee and Joyner are dudes. I’m concerned about linebacker. Brown is good, but we didn’t add much in terms of numbers. The one to watch here is Jayson Gilliom. Came as a safety but missed last year due to injury. Heard he’s really really good.

    I agree on the OL. I think it’ll be better. Brown replacing Bostick should help the run blocking. Big Earl was great but he’s not a mauler. Spencer Lovell probably beats out Ford for a guard spot. That’s some more extra beef.



  • Makes me feel really good to see our latest group of 13 are now on Campus and enrolled for Spring Semester. - Can’t lie I’m stoked you can see Coach is really filling in his guys and talent getting better. - -Couple of these guys are 4 Stars -one was rated a 5 star by one publication , getting some size height and weight.

    One’s I’m super excited that are actually here cause I think these guys are REALLY gonna help are : - Austin Booker ( DE ) from Minnesota- Pattrick Joyner ( DE ) from Utah State - Super, Super stoked about Damarius McGee - -4* ( CB ) from LSU -Super Stoked about Logan Brown - -he is the 5 * by the one publlication a 6’6 & 311 pound ( OL ) from Wisconsin - - -Spencer Lovell ( OL ) 6"6 and 335 pounds from Cal-- And realy stoked for our specialist we needed desperately --( PK ) Seeth Keller from Texas State

    Super charged for ALL the guys but these to me are gonna be studs ya I realize we don’t have a full 4 years with some of them but still filling in really nice - - -I’m ready



  • Having these guys ready to step in and start next season is huge. Even if you don’t have them for 4 years, bridging that gap while other guys develop is important to avoid a step back to being a 1 or 2 win team.



  • @justanotherfan I posted on another thread, but adding through the transfer portal should be a top priority for LL and Co.

    There is probably a “nicer” way of saying it, but “trapping” kids here and getting them after they used their free transfer already is going to be important for “getting old and staying old.”

    If you can land ~8-10 multi-year guys through the portal every year, that is likely to mean you have at least 30 players on your roster every single season who have 2+ years of D1 college football experience. Throw in a minimum of 40 “home grown” guys (just 10 each class), and you’ll never see the scholarships dip below 75 ever again… And you’d be a VERY old team. It feels like the staff understands this.



  • @Kcmatt7 this is the way. I’ve heard a mix of 15 HS, 10 portal/JuCo is the strategy moving forward. Once the Covid years cycle out it’ll be more consistent
