University of Kansas football recruiting

Outside of a quick drive over to Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday to make a cameo on ESPN’s College GameDay, Kansas football coach Les Miles spent the majority of the past few days with high school prospects and their families at Anderson Family Football Complex, during a busy recruiting weekend.

While some of the players who made the trek to Lawrence for the program’s big junior day — some high school seniors attended as well — already had committed to the Jayhawks, the majority of the visitors checked out campus and the KU facilities unattached.

Two of the four class of 2021 players who committed to KU months back were in Lawrence and posted photos of their visit to Twitter. Quarterback Ben Easters, a three-star prospect per Rivals, shared that he had an “incredible time” on his visit. Jaddai Henry, a three-star receiver, thanked Miles, receivers coach Emmett Jones and offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon in a post that included photos of his “great” junior day.

Another committed recruit, receiver Majik Rector, retweeted some photos that showed him posing with other visitors, as well as Jones and Dearmon.
