The University of Kansas "Jayhawks" are based in Lawrence, Kansas, playing athletic contests in the Big 12 Conference

Texas prep linebacker chooses Kansas

The University of Kansas, and football coach Les Miles, have received a verbal commitment from D’Marion Alexander, a high school linebacker from China Spring, Texas.  Alexander’s commitment came from his Instagram account on Wednesday night.

Alexander, a Rivals three-star prospect, had originally committed to P.J. Fleck and the Minnesota Golden Gophers early in his recruiting cycle, but had de-committed by this past spring.  

As the recruitment re-opened, Alexander veered toward Kansas and assistant coach Chidera Uzo-Diribe, while showing interest in TCU and Baylor.

In becoming the 18th member of the Jayhawks 2021 class, Alexander tweeted, “I am beyond blessed to say that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career with the University of Kansas”, saying he is “1000%” shut down.  He is the sixth commit for Coach Miles out of the state of Texas.
