When head coach Lance Leipold and his staff took over the Kansas football program this past May, they knew recruiting for the 2022 class would be slow-going at first, given the timing of the transition and only a handful of months left before the early signing period arrived. It didn’t take long for them to adapt and embrace the possibilities that the NCAA’s transfer portal had to offer.
It’s been a busy few days for the Kansas football program in the transfer portal, as the Jayhawks on Monday added two more transfers to bolster the roster for head coach Lance Leipold’s second season.
