Defensive lineman Keon Stowers commits to KU

December 15, 2011


Keon Stowers, a a 6-foot-3, 273-pound defensive tackle out of Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga., committed to the Kansas football team on Thursday night.

Stowers chose KU over Indiana, Louisville and others. He committed after an in-home visit Thursday with KU coach Charlie Weis and assistant coach Reggie Mitchell.

"It maybe took two minutes before I realized this is the guy (Weis) I want to play for," Stowers told "We talked a lot about character and education before he mentioned football. We talked about the coaches that mentored him like (Bill) Parcells and (Bill) Belichick. Those are coaches off the charts. I think KU is a good situation and I want to be a part of it."

On Wednesday, Weis picked up his first commitment from Bishop Miege receiver Tre Parmalee.

Nice pickup - hopefully he will pan out.

I see Weis going into living rooms that Gill only wished he could visit.

Not sure about that. No matter what coach we have, Kansas will probably not land top talent on a national level. There is no way to get those kids to go to Kansas and not Texas, Alabama, LSU, Ohio St., etc.
