The Kansas football team lost a three-star commitment but gained another during a busy few hours Wednesday.
Nick Williams, a 6-foot-8 offensive tackle from Overland, Mo., announced on Twitter that he had chosen KU. Listed as Rivals’ top offensive lineman in the state, Williams also had offers from Illinois and Minnesota.
“The whole time there has always been a school that stood out to me,” Williams wrote on Twitter. “Ever since I stepped foot on campus it just felt right.”
Never miss a local story.
Meanwhile, previous KU commit Aaron Brule — a 6-foot-2 safety from Matairie, La. — took to Twitter on Wednesday to say he was reopening his recruitment.
“I would like to see what other schools have to offer,” he wrote. “Kansas will continue to be at the top of my list of schools I’m interested in attending.”
Brule, a three-star recruit according to Rivals, is ranked as the nation’s 39th-best safety.
