    Not sure if this was posted before. But!

    According to ESPN he snubbed us for KU. Rivals has him committed to KU as well. He's still on our commit list however.

    Bobby Elliot is/was recruiting him. He was just on an official visit to KU.

    Kennth Lynn to KU

    Cool. He and DJ Beshears then will have the opportunity to get beaten by us for the next 2-4 years.

    Thats interesting because after this next season, there will be two open starting DB spots on the field to fill. Assuming Ter'Ran Benton stays as the starting DB. You would think any DB thinking of coming in would want to be in the situation to start as a freshmen.

    I guess it's kinda sad when a kid doesn't think he's good enough to play for CPR, to be a Cyclone, and has to settle for being a Jayhawk.

    Ah, cb, a much bigger need than wr. My bad. He'll get worn out pretty fast playing at KU.

    didn't he talk to any of KU's current players?

    didn't they tell him how much it must suck being a gill player? :biglaugh:

    have fun when paul rhoads and steel jantz burns your butt the next two years.
    have never liked kansas.-they have a nebraska product for a coach and a squawk for a qb coach:that gives me reason to hate them more and wanting to beat them more often.... GO CYCLONES-LETS START THE BALL ROLLING AND BEAT THEM IN
    BASKETBALL!!!!!!!

    we need cbs and safeties that are over 6 foot and 210 lbs and 4.35-4.4 wheels underneath them......

    Yeah, so does the NFL. If you find some, give some pro scouts a call because I am sure they would love to get the first one into the league. Besides that, statistics show 5'10-5'11 CBs are more successful.

    KU is doing great recruiting despite their record.

    How many players fit that bill - in college or pro - right now? Not asking for too much, I suppose.

    This is beyond me! For a young man to decommitt from the promise that he gave to a head coach who gave him his first opportunity to play for a FBS school, who stuck with him through thick and thin, and who believed in him before others took notice is unbelievable. As a high schooler I can tell you that there is no way I would go against my promise to play for a coach like CPR. To see all of these recruits who go against their word and promise really pisses me off.

    There is a chance this was also a mutual decision, with the ISU staff deciding that another player would be a better fit for ISU, so they told kenneth to look elsewhere for a playing opportunity. Things like this happen, and be glad it happened before he got on campus and wasted a scholarship and a year of eligibility.

    I see your point. We have to remember we are talking about young, very impressionable kids who will make decisions on a whim. My thought is that KU is the last team he visited. Right now he may feel good about them and he may have made a decision based on those feelings and hasn't really thought things through, which is very typical of a young kid.
