The Kansas football team had a productive Sunday in recruiting, picking up three oral commitments from defensive linemen.
High school prospect Josh Smith and junior-college teammates Jonathan Lolohea and Charles Cameron gave their pledges to coach David Beaty on Sunday, moving the Jayhawks to 12th in the 2018 Rivals team recruiting rankings.
Smith, a 6-foot-4, 247-pound defensive end, is a three-star recruit and is ranked the 14th-best player in Louisiana. He’s the third player in the class who chose the Jayhawks from Landry-Walker in New Orleans — the same high school where KU safety Mike Lee played.
The 6-foot-3, 305-pound Lolohea (three stars) and 6-foot-3, 290-pound Cameron (two stars) both play defensive tackle for Copiah-Lincoln (Miss.) Community College. Lolohea had offers from TCU, Kansas State and Louisville among others, while Cameron’s list included Colorado, Louisville and Southern Miss.
Never miss a local story.
KU now has commitments from one five-star, one four-star and nine three-star prospects in its 13-player recruiting class for next season.
