Stephen Hoge Faxes to Lawrence

Stephen Hoge, from Oklahoma City, (Okla.), became a Kansas Jayhawk today when he signed his letter of intent. The two-star kicker talked what it meant to finally have all of this behind him.

"It is really exciting," Stephen Hoge said of signing his LOI. "It is a D-1 school, and it is close to home. It is a full scholarship, so it is very exciting. It is a great opportunity."

"I visited Kansas, and it was really nice. It is close to home, in the Big 12, so I committed."

Hoge was selected First Team All-State as a senior. He picked Kansas over Colorado State, Western Michigan, Southern Miss and Harvard. The strong-legged kicker said he expects to redshirt his freshman season. Top Stories
