The Kansas Jayhawks are not done with their 2018 recruiting class. They added yet another prospect this past week. JUCO cornerback Ricky Thomas announced that he would be joining the Jayhawks next season.

Thomas, who redshirted his first season at Blinn College, finished his freshman year with 20 tackles, three interceptions and four pass breakups. He was a 2-star recruit entering college but decided to take the JUCO route.

Thomas adds to the lengthy list of Louisiana players on the Jayhawks and is the 12th JUCO player to be joining the Jayhawks next season.

The most likely situation for Thomas will be a rotation role to start the season. However, Thomas is fully capable of working his way further up the depth chart. He could potentially become a starter a year or two into his career at Kansas.

The Jayhawks are not just focusing on 2018 however, as they offered a 2019 recruit this past week. Keenan Garber, an athlete from Lawrence Free State High School in Lawrence, Kansas received a scholarship offer from Kansas. The Jayhawks are trying to focus their recruiting in their strongest recruiting grounds, Kansas and Louisiana.

Garber’s primary positions are free safety and wide receiver. He would give Kansas a speedy return-man as well, which is something they lacked last season. The Jayhawks had a very weak special teams unit, and Garber could help improve it. He could potentially develop into a viable option for any quarterback.

Garber holds an offer from Kansas State in the FBS. He also has offers from multiple FCS teams such as North Dakota State, North Dakota, South Dakota State and South Dakota. 

The jury is still out whether Keenan Garber will join the Jayhawks, but for now, they will celebrate as they add to their 2018 class.

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.
