Former BYU QB Jake Heaps To Visit Kansas And Charlie Weis, According To Report

Now that Charlie Weis has been installed as the next head coach of the Kansas Jayhawks, the first order of business is to find a quarterback to run his passing attack. While word had been out that Weis was courting former Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist, but now it seems that another gunslinger from out West could be making the move to Lawrence.

Former BYU quarterback Jake Heaps will be making a visit to KU soon, and there's a possibility that Weis could land both Heaps and Crist for 2012 and 2013.

Per Rivals site JayhawkSlant.com,

There's actually the possibility Weis could land both Crist and Heaps with no fear of overlap. The former has already graduated and would be permitted to use his final season of collegiate eligibility immediately in 2012, while the latter would have to sit out the 2012 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules and wouldn't be eligible to play until 2013. Heaps would, however, be permitted to practice with team next season and learn Weis' offense.

Could the Jayhawks be turning the corner starting with a quality quarterback? If Charlie Weis gets a quarterback, you never know.
