Sendish reportedly had offers from five BCS conference schools, and picked Kansas (1-11 in 2012) over Big 12 rivals Iowa State and Kansas State. The 6'2, 190-pound cornerback will look to start immediately after coming over from Arizona Western Community College, where he was an all-region and all-conference selection. Sendish played one season at College of the Canyons in California before his one season at Arizona Western in 2012.

Sandesh cited Kansas coach Dave Campo as a big reason he chose the Jayhawks:

"There was no way I could turn down being coached by Dave Campo," Sendish said. "He's obviously one of the best DB coaches out there, and he's coached players like Deion Sanders and Darren Woodson."

Sendish will enroll for the spring semester after he signs his letter of intent on Dec. 19. So far, nine of the Jayhawks' 15 2013 commitments are junior college transfers
