Five-star receiver Devonta Jason remains committed to Kansas and will visit other schools
Never mind that two of the top 20 players in the NFL, per Pro Football Focus’ grading of every snap of the 2016 season, played at Kansas, when a five-star recruit is wooed by the nation’s perennial powerhouses and commits to Kansas reporters are going to keep asking him if he’s still committed to Kansas.
Gabe Brooks of scout.com interviewed Kansas verbal commit Devonta Jason at "Pylong 7v7 Nationals" earlier this week and Jason reiterated he remains committed to Kansas. The first sentence was as discouraging for KU fans as the rest of what he had to say was encouraging.
“I’m committed because I’ve already decommitted one time, and I don’t wanna be a two-time decommit,” Jason said.
Then he talked about what led to him choosing Kansas: “It’s a great atmosphere. Coach Tony Hull, he’s from the city. I played against him in high school my freshman year. . . . Coach (David) Beaty, coach (Doug) Meacham, all the coaches overall are just great people and great to be around.”
Then the next quotes from Jason weren’t quite as encouraging: “I’m still locked in with Kansas, but still an open mind to stay open to the process. I don’t have my official (visit) plans yet, but it’s coming soon.”
