17 days until Tennessee Tech comes to Memorial Stadium under the Friday Night Lights! Three weeks ago we predicted a 48-10 Kansas victory. KU just began week 4 of their fall camp. Let’s get to our Jayhawk Camp Update!
Week 3 Camp Update
“It’s a night and day difference here in August than it was a year ago. Our talent level is up, our buy-in is better than it’s ever been before. Now we have got to be able to take that daily competition that we’ve talked about so dearly and make it better playing on gameday and that’s our goal this fall.” -Lance Leipold
Leipold set the Jayhawk culture change in motion last summer. When asked if he’d seen improvement there, he said:
“Culture is action. It’s not a bunch of slogans or some words you throw up on a wall. You’ve got to act it, you’ve got to do it.”
The big question heading into camp revolved around the Quarterback position. Kevin Bean or Jalon Daniels? Daniels always had the edge heading into camp and will likely emerge as the starter. Kevin Bean has been stacking great practices, though, and is eager to get on the field.
“Jason Bean has had some of his best practices, I’ll just say that. His best practices as a Jayhawk have been in this month of August. I’m proud of how he’s gone about it. He’s more confident. He’s not letting this topic affect how he goes about it.” – Lance Leipold
Leaders have emerged on both sides of the ball and the Jayhawks have better depth at all positions than they have in awhile.
Jayhawk Staff and Recruiting update
Recruiting doesn’t stop…even in our Jayhawk Camp Update, there are big signings to report.
Kansas filled their Senior Offensive Analyst job with Matt Lubick, former Offensive Coordinator at Nebraska under Scott Frost. Lubick was fired after Nebraska’s disappointing season last year, but will help design game plans with the offensive staff this year in Lawrence.
The Jayhawks picked up commitments from three 3 star recruits in the past 3 weeks.
Blake Herold, a 6’4″ 245 lb Defensive Lineman from Shenandoah, IA. Herold is projected to play Defensive End at Kansas. He chose the Jayhawks over North Dakota State, North Dakota, and Northern Iowa.
