You may have read a couple of weeks ago about the $2-2.5 million Anderson Family Football Complex upgrades planned for the Kansas University football program.

A new-look locker room, new players lounge and updated Mrkonic Auditorium film and meeting room were the cornerstones of the project and the goal was for the upgrades to be finished in time for preseason camp and the 2016 season.

Now, thanks to KU staff member Tyler Olker, we have visual evidence that the project is 100 percent under way.

Olker, KU's director of recruiting, posted to Twitter four pics of the early stages of the locker room makeover and you can see that construction crews are wasting no time getting going.

In case you forgot, the photo at the top of the blog is an artist's rendering of what the finished locker room will look like. Below are Olker's four photos of the initial progress.

Stay tuned for more...

Should be a nice touch for current players and for recruiting visits in the fall. A great way to show continued commitment.

Agree with Brett, and trust the stadium isn't far behind.

Matt, thanks for the update. Really enjoy seeing things of this nature (as well).

Like the Jayhawk off the floor and on the ceiling. Seems more appropriate.

What do the players do for workouts through the summer?

We need big off seasons just to keep the other teams in sight.

I would guess still in Anderson since the weight room isn't being updated. Or they could go to Wagnon or Robinson.
