Texas HS WR Tevailance Hunt on his commitment to Kansas

The latest addition to the 2018 Kansas football class, Tevailance Hunt, talks about his decision to become a Jayhawk.

Texas High School (Texarkana, Texas) wide receiver Te'vailance Hunt came to Lawrence Saturday for the spring game, and left giving his commitment to become a Jayhawk.

"When I went down there, the people are cool," Hunt said. "The teammates have a bond with each other."

Hunt had become a highly-sought recruit, garnering recent offers from Southern Miss, Marshall, Tulsa, Iowa State and Bowling Green.

Hunt said he's an explosive play-maker who can get to the end zone and be a difference maker.

“They say I have a chance to do something great up there, and help turn the program around," Hunt said.

Hunt visited Kansas Saturday along with his high school teammates and 2017 KU signee Quan Hampton.

"He's told me about the great environment at KU, and told me that I would love the coaches and the players," Hunt said about Hampton.

While Hampton is getting started at KU, however, Hunt has plans to erase him from the Texas High School record books.

"I’m trying to break these school records and make a name for myself," Hunt said, adding that it's Hampton's receiving records he's ready to break. 

"Go for it," Hampton has told Hunt. 

Hunt said Kansas coach David Beaty was excited about his decision.

"He was fired up. (Beaty) It was crazy," Hunt said. "You’ll see it get real in the next couple years."

He becomes the seventh member of the Kansas 2018 class. Top Stories
