Oklahoma DE planning game day second visit to KU

Nothing drastic has changed in the past month with Kansas football recruit Russell Brorsen, and that's a good thing for the KU coaching staff. The defensive end from Stillwater, Oklahoma continues to be impressed with the program in Lawrence.

"Right now Kansas is truly my favorite," said Brorsen whose also looking at Oklahoma State, Stanford, and Tulsa.

The Stanford possibility has Brorsen interested. "It's pretty much the best academic school you can get a scholarship to. I'd like to take a visit there," said Brosen.

Kansas remains the only school on the list which has offered a scholarship. College coaches can begin calling players this Wednesday on a weekly basis to sell their programs.

Stillwater High School opens their regular season this Friday night with a game against Owasso, OK. Brorsen is pumped to get going.

"Football is going real well. We're looking pretty good on defense, we've had a couple of scrimmages and the defense has only been scored on once."

Brorsen plays both ways for his high school squad. On offense, he lines up at tackle and occasionally in the back field.

"I get to play goal line fullback every once in a while. I keep telling them to give me the ball, but they won't. I am basically put in there to run somebody over," joked Brorsen.

Despite his desire to score a touchdown on offense, Brorsen realizes what his position will be at the next level.

"I bet it's defensive end. That's where I would like to play," he said.

Brorsen liked what he saw from the city of Lawrence on his unofficial visit earlier this summer, and he plans on checking out the city on a Saturday this fall to witness the game day atmosphere. KU defensive coordinator Bill Young is heading up the recruitment for the D-tackle.

"I like him a lot (Young). He seems like a nice guy. I'm sure he's tough on the field, but he seemed interested in me. Also, he's coached in the NFL."

Expect Young to give Brorsen a call this week as the Jayhawks continue to move in for the services of the defensive tackle.
