Recruiting Corner: An Early Look at the 2010 Offensive Prospects

While it is still very early in the recruiting season, here is a preliminary list of KU’s potential offensive targets for the Class of 2010.  It is important to note that these are only the targets from the high school level.  Most targets from prep schools and junior colleges will not be identified until late summer or fall. 

As I said before, this is a very early list.  The list of targets will balloon to 300+ prospects following KU’s Junior Days and Kansas football summer camps.  I will do my best to track the list of targets as it grows and make a note of all offers, commits, etc. in the upcoming months.  The list of defensive targets will be posted in the next week or so.

I know for a fact that some of these prospects have already committed elsewhere, but as of now they are still on KU's target list.  At this stage in the game, it is hard to say that any commitment is secure.  If anyone knows of a prospect that I have missed, a recruit that has been offered, etc. please feel free to leave a message and I will correct the list.  Rock Chalk.

25 offers for offense ... wow!

Shall we pick our favorites to be the first KU commit?

Honestly, I have no clue who will be the first commit...nor do I have any idea when it will happen. If I was a betting man, I would say that it is going to be either Keeston Terry or Devin Patterson. I don't have any facts to back it up, I just know that KU is pretty high on both lists and that both prospects have family that play/played for KU. I also think that KU is going to get 3-4 commits sometime between now and April 15. Then they will probably get another 6-7 by the first of June. I'm guessing that they will trickle in a little bit till the season starts...probably have about 12 by the time Fall practice kicks off...and then it will get quiet until about November.

There is a lot of uncertainty with recruiting, but I am almost positive that if KU can sign a Blake Bell/Justin McCay/Joseph Randle, that there will be many others to follow suit. I really think that signing one of those top-notch kids is the key to signing 4-5+...which basically puts KU square on the recruiting map for the future. I like to think of it like a dam...once it cracks it will flood.

Okay, I'm not afraid of OU ... I'll go with Blake Bell
