Kansas Football Class of 2017 Signee: LB Jay Dineen

Phog.net takes a closer look at the newest Kansas signee.

Recruiting

Jay Dineen had interest from nearly a dozen schools including Iowa State, Air Force, Michigan, SMU and Tulsa. There was little doubt, however, that he was always destined to join his older brother in Lawrence.

Quotable

Dineen: "When I decided to commit to Kansas before all the camps, it just kind of all stopped (all the other recruiting). I knew I wanted to play in Lawrence and play under coach (David) Beaty. Living in Lawrence was a big part, being able to have my parents come to every game. And having my brother play on the team made it very easy to make the decision. I’m very close to him, and it will help me a lot.”

Evaluation

Dineen is patient, yet explosive. He doesn't get in a hurry to make a bad decision, but can also get into the backfield to cause ample disruption when assigned. Can tell he's excited to play with his older brother for a couple years with the Jayhawks, and it will be fun to see how they push each others development.
