Following his team’s sixth spring practice Tuesday evening, University of Kansas football coach Les Miles didn’t reveal much about the status of any position battles, but he couldn’t hold back a detail regarding the program’s upcoming spring game.

Just a few hours into college football’s early signing period on Wednesday morning, the Kansas football program’s 2019 recruiting class grew. New head coach Les Miles and his staff had eight verbal commitments in place entering the day, but added one target they had recruited hard the past several weeks right off the bat. Plus, the Jayhawks signed a quarterback prospect who first committed to former head coach David Beaty and his staff before 2018’s National Signing Day. By Benton Smith
