It's been a big week for Kansas football on the recruiting front and on Friday, it got that much better, as the Jayhawks landed the commitments of two dynamic talents in Fort Scott Community College cornerback Kevin Short and Garden City Community College wide receiver Rodriguez Coleman.
"At 6'3", 195 pounds, Coleman will be expected to come in and compete immediately at the wide reciever spot," Midwest Recruiting analyst Randy Withers said.
Coleman led Garden City CC receivers this year, racking up 945 yards and seven touchdowns on 64 receptions. He originally signed with Cincinnati and former coach Butch Jones (now at Tennessee) out of high school.
At 6'2", 182 pounds, Short, originally from Florissant, MO made 27 tackles, a sack, snagged five interceptions, had seven pass breakups and blocked a kick.
"He is a sophomore, so he has a redshirt year available, though he is projected to compete for time from the day he gets to campus," Withers said.
Both kids are huge wins for the Kansas coaching staff, who is on a roll, landing several other targets, including Marquel Combs, who has spearheading the charge using the hashtag "Dream Team 2013" on Twitter, even going so far as to design his own logo for Kansas football next year.
All signs point to the Jayhawks to continue moving forward, as they hope lock down more commitments in the coming days.
