In the wake of their first game against Nicholls State, the Kansas Jayhawks and head coach David Beaty will look to the young recruits to make an impact and help turn the Kansas football program around. Beaty’s 2018 recruiting class consists of 27 players, both scholarship and walk-on.

The Jayhawk class also contains two 4-star freshmen, cornerback Corione Harris and running back Anthony “Pooka” Williams to go along with 13 JUCO players.

However, with the recent release of the depth chart, neither Harris nor Williams started in the Jayhawks’ first game against Nicholls State. Despite neither player securing the starting spot in game one, they could make a strong push to start in game two against Central Michigan.

Another place of uncertainty is the quarterback position. Although Beaty announced that Peyton Bender would be the starter in game one, he also said that JUCO recruit Miles Kendrick would appear in every game this season.

Neither Bender, Kendrick nor junior quarterback Carter Stanley is very accurate, but Kendrick has the speed to outrun the other two quarterbacks. Most fans believe Kendrick is the answer and could turn the football program around, but Beaty seems to think otherwise heading into game one.

Another position to watch is the defensive end position. Although KeyShaun Simmons and Brian Lipscomb are listed as the starters, there is uncertainty among the players behind them. Three new recruits, Najee Stevens-McKenzie, Azur Kamara and Foster Dixson could each make a case for a second-string spot.

Overall, there is quite a bit of uncertainty among Kansas’ roster, but the 2018 class will look to make a big impact.

Throughout my childhood, I was never much of an athlete nor did I watch many sports. Although I participated in practically every sport you could think of, I was never good at any. Throughout high school I struggled with finding my passion, I never truly knew what I wanted to go to school for but I knew for a fact I wanted to be at the University of Kansas. Being a Jayhawk was a dream of mine since childhood and I never even considered going anywhere else. Finally, midway through my senior year of high school I found my passion, writing. I was in an English class where we wrote an autobiography and it was at that moment I knew what I wanted to become, a sports journalist. I graduated high school and eventually moved to Lawrence, Kansas where I now major in both Journalism and Sports Management. Despite never taking any journalism courses in high school, I have found my passion and my dream job. I love writing about all sorts of things, namely Kansas Football, basketball and I even do some writing about music. As I child I never expected to be where I am today, but now I hope to use ArmChair as a way to branch out into the world and make connections. For now, I hope to continue expanding myself and develop as a writer.
