Kasen Weisman, a quarterback and high school senior from Douglasville, Georgia, said Thursday he has committed to play football at Kansas.
Dean Miller, an outside linebacker at College of the Canyons, became the latest player to commit to Kansas when he did so on Wednesday afternoon.
The Kansas football team will host several players for official visits this weekend and could receive one or more commitments before they leave.
Thomas, who spent his first two seasons playing at Minnesota, was among seven players whose transfer to KU were formalized on Monday. Michigan State cornerback Kalon Gervin and Ohio State linebacker Craig Young were among them.
The calendar for Lance Leipold’s second season coaching the Kansas football team is now set. The Big 12 announced Wednesday dates for all conference games in 2022, making the Jayhawks’ complete schedule official.
Before the Kansas football team played its season finale Saturday night against West Virginia, the program honored a group of 15 players — which included both seniors and super-seniors — who were about to experience the final game of their KU careers.
A Kansas football team that had lost its previous five games by an average margin of 32.6 points wasn’t expected to pose much of a threat to No. 3 Oklahoma Saturday at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium. Nevertheless, the Jayhawks had the unbeaten Sooners on upset alert before OU recovered just in time to get out of Lawrence with a 35-23 win.
