New staff, new offers

Charlie Weis was introduced as the head coach at the University of Kansas on Friday afternoon, and it didn't take him long to hit the ground running on the recruiting trail. A pair of talented wide receivers can now lay claim to an offer from the Jayhawks.

Gehrig Dieter - a 6-foot-3, 210-pound receiver from South Bend (IN) Washington High School - and Tre Parmalee - a 5-foot-10, 165-pound receiver from Roeland Park (KS) Bishop Miege - have both received scholarship offers from the new Kansas staff.

Dieter is one of the most productive receivers in the country, owning the national record for receiving yards in a game with 447. He posted astonishing numbers during his senior campaign, finishing with 82 catches for 2,181 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Though the Jayhawks are his first BCS offer, Dieter already owns offers from a host of Division One schools.

Likewise, Parmalee had an outstanding senior season for the stags, making himself one of the top receivers in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The smooth slot receiver hauled in 82 passes for 1,184 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Parmalee is currently committed to the University of Northern Illinois, and is visiting the Huskies officially this weekend.

Also of note, he is the son of former Ball State, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets running back Bernie Parmalee. The elder Parmalee was a staff member of current Kansas coach Charlie Weis throughout his previous five-year tenure at Notre Dame, responsible for the tight ends, and joined him in the same capacity with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2010.
