— Kansas coach Charlie Weis landed commitments from two junior college offensive linemen on Monday, just two days after the Jayhawks finished 3-9 in Weis' second year. Devon Williams and Keyon Haughton, teammates at Georgia Military College, joined KU's 2014 class after visiting Lawrence this past weekend, according to

Williams, who was drawing interest from Auburn and Kentucky, also had offers from Troy, South Alabama, Florida A&M and Tulane. Haughton committed to Kansas over a list of scholarship offers that included Troy, South Alabama, Louisiana-Lafayette and Florida A&M, according to

Haughton is expected to be a mid-year transfer, meaning he should be able to practice with Kansas this spring, while Williams is slated to graduate in May. They become the 10th and 11th members of Weis’ 2014 class, and the third and fourth offensive linemen.

Despite the loss of offensive line coach Tim Grunhard, who is leaving KU after two seasons, Kansas already has commitments from two high school offensive linemen: Jacob Bragg, a native of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Apa Visinia, a senior at Grandview High School.

Kansas captain Keon Stowers, a starting nose tackle, also attended Georgia Military and played host to both Haughton and Williams on their visits.
