LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Kansas coach David Beaty may have landed his quarterback of the future out of a Mississippi junior college. He might have landed his running back from there, too.
The Jayhawks unveiled a 27-member class on national signing day Wednesday that was highlighted by former Washington State quarterback Peyton Bender and running back Octavius Matthews. Both of them spent last season at Itawamba Community College, where they emerged as high-level recruits.
"It feels like a win," Beaty said of landing them, "and that's what it should feel like."
