On the same day his Kansas football program officially lost commitments from two longstanding Class of 2018 recruiting targets, three-year head coach David Beaty on three occasions Sunday took to Twitter to make unrelated “neat deal” declarations, marking the additions of new recruits.
The names of the latest potential signees won’t generate the immediate buzz of now de-committed high-profile New Orleans receiver Devonta Jason, who, like Grandview, Mo., defensive end Cartez Crook-Jones, de-committed from KU in the afternoon. But Beaty and his staff, according to Jon Kirby of Jayhawk Slant, were able to collect new pledges from three prospects.
Defensive end Foster Dixson and receiver Stephon Robinson are said to be on board from the junior college ranks. The third commitment came from a Texas prep offensive lineman, Jacobi Lott.
Robinson, a 5-foot-11, three-star receiver according to Rivals, played this past season as a freshman at El Camino Community College (Calif.), where he caught 62 passes for 1,275 yards. He had offers from Hawaii and other programs.
A 6-5, 250-pound D-end who played at West Los Angeles C.C. (Calif.), Dixson also is considered a three-star talent by Rivals and had offers from Colorado State, Connecticut and UTEP.
Lott, from Tascosa High, in Amarillo, Texas, is rated a two-star offensive tackle. Per Rivals, he also had offers from Tulsa, Bowling Green and other programs. Lott is listed at 6-3, 305 pounds.
