Ryan Wood’s KU football notebook

May 29, 2008


Summer conditioning starts Monday

After getting a break once the spring semester wrapped up, the Jayhawks will start summer conditioning drills Monday.

The summer workouts are optional, but the coaches also have the option of benching anyone who decides not to attend.

Therefore, a full roster is expected to participate this summer - like every year.

Camp time in Lawrence

KU will have seven camps this year for youths grades 4-12. The first one, for the young ones, starts June 5.

The camp likely to attract the most star power - recruiting targets, perhaps - will be the Super Jayhawk Camp for high school juniors and seniors. It is a daylong camp June 14.

Linebacker commits

Kansas received a non-binding oral commitment from Earnest Norman, a 5-foot-11, 220-pound linebacker out of Euless, Texas.

Norman is a standout at Euless Trinity High, one of the top high school football programs in Texas.

Norman picked Kansas over Kansas State, Washington State, Tulsa and Duke.

The Jayhawks presently have four known commitments for the 2009 class - two on offense and two on defense.
