BYU QB Jake Heaps Transfers To Kansas

On the heels of former Notre Dame QB Dayne Crist's decision to join his old coach in Lawrence, Kansas football welcomed another highly-touted five-star QB in BYU transfer Jake Heaps Thursday.

Heaps, a 6'1 205 QB out of Washington, lost the Cougars' starting job five games into the 2011 season. In his two seasons in Provo, Heaps completed 57.2% of his passes for 3,768 yards, 24 TD's and 17 INT's.

A true sophomore, Heaps will use his redshirt year next season, giving him two years of eligibility in Kansas. 

With Crist slated to have one season of eligibility left as a graduating senior in 2012, Kansas football potentially has a five-star QB to run Weis' offense for the next three seasons.

And while neither player lived up to expectations in their first college stop, they were undoubtedly drawn to Kansas to play for Weis, who developed Tom Brady in New England and helped turn Brady Quinn and Jimmy Clausen into top picks at Notre Dame.
