Tanner Hawkinson Commits

Tanner Hawkinson, a Scout.com three-star tight end from McPherson, Kansas, ended his recruitment Saturday afternoon giving his commitment to Coach Mark Mangino and the Kansas Jayhawks.

"I committed to Kansas today at their camp," said Tanner Hawkinson. "After the camp I stood around and waited for coach [Brandon] Blaney. I told coach Blaney there was something I wanted him to know."

"We walked over to coach Mangino and I told him I was ready to commit. The coaches were pretty excited. They have been after me for a while."

"I kind of knew in the back of my mind I wanted to go to Kansas. It was the perfect time going to their camp. I talked to my dad on the way there about it."

"After talking to their coaches face-to-face, and working with them at the camp, I knew it was where I wanted to go. It helped solidify my decision after working with them."

"I definitely feel real comfortable up there. They need a tight end. Their coaches make me feel real comfortable. I have always been a big fan of Kansas."

"It feels good to be committed. It's a big weight off your shoulders. I don't have to go to any more camps or visits."

"I am not going to visit any other schools. I am finished with everything," Hawkinson explained.
