KU to host slate of weekend visitors

This week, the University of Kansas kicked off not only spring practice, but a new era of Jayhawks football with Charlie Weis at the helm. He and his staff are wasting no time in getting the most out of spring on the recruiting trail as well, by hosting a number of unofficial visitors at Saturday's practice.

Practically from the moment Charlie Weis arrived at the University of Kansas a new, vibrant energy has emanated from the Anderson Family Football Complex, and recruits are taking notice.

That's particularly true for recruits in the Kansas City region. The Jayhawks kicked off spring football this week and will have their third practice of the month-long session Saturday, with several of the top prospects from the area in attendance.

Though the list isn't comprehensive, thus far Scout.com has learned that Montell Cozart, Jordan Darling, Ben Johnson, Coleman McCann, Clay Rhodes and Skyler Windmiller will all be roaming the sidelines this weekend. Per his Twitter account, 2012 signee Schyler Miles - an impressive linebacker out of Tampa (FL) Berkeley Prep - will also make the trip.

Johnson, a 6-foot-6, 225-pound tight end from Basehor (KS) Linwood, became the first commit to Weis' recruiting class of 2013 when he put an end to things in late February.

Roeland Park (KS) Bishop Miege quarterback Cozart, Prairie Village (KS) Shawnee Mission East quarterback Darling and Stilwell (KS) Blue Valley left tackle Rhodes also currently hold scholarship offers from Kansas, while McCann and Windmiller are both being recruited by the staff as well.

Check back with Scout.com and Phog.net for interviews with the prospects later this weekend and early next week.
