Kansas Number One so Far

Not only did Kansas pick up a huge win over the weekend against Kansas State, the Jayhawks may soon notch another recruit to add to their growing list of 2005 players who have verbally committed.

Jake Schermer a 6'3" 205 pound linebacker from Ozark, Missouri is considering both Kansas and Missouri and the Jayhawks appear to be in good shape. 

"Kansas is number one so far," said Schermer who came to Lawrence on an unofficial visit for Saturday night's victory.

The Jayhawks have offered a scholarship while the Tigers would like for Schermer to walk on.  If things don't change on the Mizzou front in terms of a scholarship, Schermer plans on heading to KU.

"If Missouri offers a scholarship, then I would probably take some more time to make a decision.  I would want to visit MU and think about it." 

If Mizzou is interested, the Tigers better hurry because Schermer may make a decision in the next two weeks.    

The Ozark, Missouri talent loved the atmosphere he experienced on Saturday night.

"It was unbelievable and something that I will never forget.  It was more than I expected, I didn't know their fans were that great and that crazy."

Schermer's dad and little brother were in Lawrence as well.

"My little brother asked why don't you commit there?  My dad thought it was great also, they both loved it there."    

It had been over a decade since Kansas had knocked off KSU, but Schermer wasn't stunned to witness history this past weekend.

"After 11 years I was a little surprised, but Coach (Brandon) Blaney told me last Wednesday that Kansas had a great team this year and that they we're going to beat K-State."

As of right now, Schermer plans on returning to Lawrence on an official visit during the month of December.
