Jayhawks land QB


Kansas University's football team, building a solid list of early commitments, landed one of the top quarterbacks in Texas.

Todd Reesing, a dual-threat quarterback from Lake Travis, on Tuesday gave his nonbinding oral commitment to Kansas, according to He's the seventh player known to commit to KU for the 2006 season. At this time last year, Kansas had just three.

"I may not be the biggest or fastest, but I know a lot of coaches liked what they saw," Reesing told rivals. "Coach (Mark) Mangino told me he liked my quick release and my arm. I can avoid the pressure and have good vision downfield."

Reesing threw for more than 3,000 yards and 29 touchdowns as a junior and compiled 330 yards rushing. He received offers from Kansas, Kansas State and Duke, according to rivals.

Reesing was named Texas Class 4A Offensive Player of the Year as a junior. He was recruited by new assistant coach Tim Beck.

Signing day isn't until February, meaning Reesing can't officially be a Jayhawk for several months.
