The Kansas football program’s lengthy list of 2020 commitments shrank by one this weekend.

Among the earlier players during a busy June to pledge to head coach Les Miles and his staff, linebacker Kershawn Fisher announced Saturday night on Twitter that he’s now a “free agent,” having decommitted from the Jayhawks.

A three-star prospect from Northshore High, in Slidell, La., Fisher declared himself “1000%” committed to KU earlier this summer, when he made his nonbinding decree on June 8.

According to Rivals, Fisher has also in the past received scholarship offers from 11 other programs, including Houston, Air Force, Kansas State and Louisiana Tech.

Fisher joins Keith Miller III, a three-star receiver from Texas, as the only players in the class so far who have backed out of a commitment to Kansas.

Even with the loss of Fisher, KU currently has 21 high school seniors in its upcoming recruiting class who are on board.

The earliest any of them can sign and make their future with KU official is December.
