The Kansas football program’s 2020 recruiting class continued growing this weekend, gaining its first linebacker in the process.

Rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals, Kershawn Fisher hopped on Twitter late Saturday night to announce his decision to join the Jayhawks.

Listed at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, the Northshore High standout in Slidell, La., described himself in the post as “1000%” committed to KU and declared his recruitment “over” now, ahead of his senior year.

Recruited by KU assistant coach Kwahn Drake, Fisher also reportedly had offers from Kansas State, Houston, Air Force and several other programs.

The new KU recruit told Jon Kirby of Jayhawk Slant the program's recent history of brining in players from his home state of Louisiana made the idea of playing at Kansas even more appealing.

“I didn’t know what to expect, but after the visit I know Kansas is where I want to be,” Fisher said. “The school was impressive and they are about winning. They’re looking at people in Louisiana more. I like that and I feel like the players in Louisiana need to be looked at more. I knew that I would be very comfortable playing with people from Louisiana.”

KU now had eight players verbally committed for 2020, with seven of them rated as three-star prospects.

All verbal commitments, of course, are nonbinding. The soonest any players in the 2020 class can sign is December.

Always nice to beat out K-state for a recruit. Another Louisianimal!

DaVonshai Harden Jr Topeka High is underrated. He is a superb athlete with the size at 6-2 220 and mobility to play running back or possibly safety if he doesn't make it as a quarterback.

He is exciting to watch. He brings a lot of skills that could be employed in a creative offense. Looking forward to seeing him on the field next year!
