National Signing Day: Kansas Receives Decent Recruiting Grade From ESPN

After the feeding frenzy known as National Signing Day, ESPN recently graded each school’s recruiting haul from coast to coast. With a most impressive signing coming months ago with running back Damian Miller, ESPN likes Kansas enough to rank them fifth in the Big 12 and gave them a B+ overall.

They also specifically mention two quarterbacks: Brock Berglund from Colorado and Michael Cummings from Killeen, Texas. The final synopsis reads:

The Jayhawks did not achieve great success on the field, but Gill has created a buzz among his recruits. Kansas lacks a four-star prospect or any real difference-makers at this point, but it’s a deep class. Aside from Miller, Kansas landed two good-looking spread quarterbacks with the athleticism and dual-threat attributes to shine in that system. No. 13 QB Brock Berglund (Highlands Ranch, Colo./Valor Christian) is a sleeper who can make all the college throws out of the spread and hurt you with his legs. WR JaCorey Shepherd (Mesquite, Texas/Horn) offers good production after the catch and some big-play ability with his quickness and speed. Kansas beefed up on the offensive line with this class as well.
