One week before national signing day, Kansas football’s 2015 recruiting class continues to be in flux.
The latest change: Olathe North senior tight end Josh Moore, who committed to KU in the fall, will not be signing with Kansas next Wednesday, Moore announced on his Twitter account on Tuesday evening.
Moore, a 6-foot-5, 250-pound senior, first committed to Ohio State before switching his commitment to Kansas in mid-October, in the weeks after interim coach Clint Bowen took over for Charlie Weis.
Moore, a three-star recruit, played at Olathe North for head coach Gene Wier, who has since taken a job on the KU staff as the director of high school operations.
“It was a deal,” Moore wrote on his Twitter account, “where my high school coach tried to force me to go to his favorite school.”
Moore, who is reportedly still considering Missouri, told Scout.com that he will not be signing with any school until after national signing day, which is Feb. 4.
“But I have nothing against (KU),” Moore tweeted. “It’s a great place, love the staff, it’s just not meant for me! They’re going to do great things in the future.”
According to Rivals.com, Kansas currently has 21 players in its 2015 recruiting class, the first for new coach David Beaty. That list includes eight junior college players who signed during the early signing period.
