Fourth-year Kansas coach David Beaty finally got to discuss one of his favorite topics, recruiting, on Wednesday, otherwise known as National Signing Day in the realm of college football. Speaking with media members for the first time since the Jayhawks lost their 2017 season finale at Oklahoma State, on Nov. 25, capping a 1-11 season, Beaty reveled in hailing the program’s newest additions. Eventually the coach also responded to queries on the presence of 11 junior college signees in a 2018 class that currently features seven known scholarship players from the high school ranks.
