Matt Tait’s KU football notebook

Briscoe works out for ’Boys

Ex-Kansas University receiver Dezmon Briscoe worked out for his hometown team Monday, when the Dallas Cowboys hosted their annual “Dallas Day” at Cowboys Stadium.

Briscoe was able to participate in the “locals-only workout” because he is a graduate of Cedar Hill High in Dallas.

The Cowboys own the 27th pick in the first round of this year’s draft, and, ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said: “Dallas has made it clear that it plans to address the left tackle position.”

That’s not to say that the Cowboys couldn’t swipe Briscoe with a late-second-round pick. In fact, following his Pro Day workout at KU in early March, Briscoe said he would be surprised if he fell out of the second round.

The 2010 NFL Draft is scheduled to begin April 22 in New York.

Jayhawks join Reed party

KU recently became the latest school to extend a scholarship offer to Class of 2011 defensive end Cedric Reed, of Cleveland (Texas) High.

Reed, 6-foot-5, 240 pounds, has received offers from eight other Big 12 schools — including Oklahoma and Texas — and has 21 offers so far. Notable programs from outside of the Big 12 who are in the hunt for Reed include Alabama, Notre Dame and USC.
