University of Kansas football recruiting

The number of commitments in the Kansas football team’s 2022 recruiting class shrank to three this weekend, as Xavion Brice announced he will be looking to play elsewhere.

“After having a long talk with my head coach, I have made the decision to decommit from the University of Kansas,” Brice wrote in a note he posted to Twitter on Sunday night.

The decision to back out came during the same weekend in which Brice shared that he picked up an offer from Texas.

A 6-foot-2 receiver from Arlington, Texas, Brice gave KU his nonbindng pledge in late November of 2020. The three-star high school prospect, who was recruited by KU receivers coach Emmett Jones, thanked KU’s coaches for the opportunity.

Brice became the second high school player to decommit from KU this month, as Caldra Williford, a three-star cornerback from St. Louis, also opted to reopen his recruitment.

With Brice’s departure, KU now has three players in the Class of 2022 currently committed to the program in the early stages of what will be a busy summer on the recruiting front for new head coach Lance Leipold and his staff.

All of the rising high school seniors currently tied to KU committed to the Jayhawks before the program’s spring coaching change.

The size of KU’s commitment list, though, figures to grow in the weeks ahead, as Leipold and his assistants assess recruits and meet players and their families this summer.
