. . . and not a word about KU's football program anywhere. I'm genuinely concerned. Scout.com ranks KU's verbal commitments to this point as the worst recruiting class in the Big XII and only the 73rd (as of 6:00 am today) class in Division I. That doesn't cut it!
I looked over the prospect list, those uncommitted recruits that are still considering KU. There aren't many offers out there, and recruits are commenting that KU is "all full up." In other words, it's not likely that there will be much in the way of last-minute announcements to shore up this year's recruiting class.
Other than one junior college recruit that seems well touted, KU's class lacks marquee talent. There don't seem to be more than one or two players that will make an impact in their first year -- that's ANY impact. Are the coaches thinking that next year will be a rebuilding year, or is the talent already on the team just that good?
Moreover, the areas where the team seemed weakest last year are underrepresented in the class. Attrition in Division I football is a fact of life. KU needs to be well balanced in each recruiting class to compete year-in and year-out. I, for one, don't see that balance or depth in the current list.
What am I missing?
