With National Signing Day in the history books, Charlie Weis and Kansas finished up their 2014 recruiting class on a strong note, giving them plenty of momentum as they head into year three under Weis. The group features a lot of talent with tremendous upside and people have taken notice, as many say Kansas is one of the biggest surprises in the nation. The Jayhawks class was ranked 62nd nationally by Scout.com
The 2014 Kansas class includes 15 high school signees, as well as eight junior college transfers and the two transfers from other Division One schools. The class as a whole totals 12 defensive players and 13 offensive players.
Kansas previously announced receiving signatures from three junior college transfers, including cornerback Ronnie Davis, offensive lineman Keyon Haughton and safety Anthony Smithson in December. The Jayhawks also added two transfers, in quarterback T.J. Millweard from UCLA and tight end Kent Taylor of Florida prior to signing day. 20 more prospects faxed in their letters of intent Wednesday morning to bring the total number to 25.
"I'm very pleased with this recruiting class," Weis said in a statement. "Our staff had to show good patience and through hard work we filled almost every pressing need."
In total, Jayhawks came from nine different states as well as Canada. Texas led the way with 11 players.
The class features 10 three-star athletes according to Scout.com and one four-star athlete in Gardner-Edgerton running back Traevohn Wrench (6-0, 190)
Tomorrow, we'll take an in-depth look at Kansas' 2014 class with reaction and analysis from Weis.
