Wichita prep makes verbal commitment to KU

Kansas University football recruiting

Wichita Collegiate High senior quarterback and safety Cody McNerney tweeted Wednesday that he has made a verbal commitment to attend Kansas.

“Happy to say I have accepted an offer from the University of Kansas! Thanks you to all my family, coaches and friends for all the support!” McNerney tweeted, without specifying whether he was offered a scholarship or preferred walk-on spot.

McNerney is the second member of the Wichita Collegiate Class of 2018 to commit to Kansas, joining offensive lineman Mac Copeland.

Personally I find this is one of the best news out of the recruiting window.

I'm pleased with this recruit, walk-on or schollie this is a good focus and a good victory for KU.

Congrats Coach Beaty!!

Very true Jeff! Sometimes these are the kids that end up having the biggest impact. Lifelong KU fans and hometown kids that are willing to put it all out there. We needed some Kansas kids to this class as well! Rockchalk!

Looking at the Hudl highlights, I'm guessing he'll be a SS candidate more than a QB. At 6-1, 205 with 4.55 speed he seems like a good get.

Immediately Red-shirt him, let him build and develop for a few years, and then get him some playing time around his Sophomore or Junior year. That's how Bill Snyder does it. And he hasn't done so bad. Hopefully whoever the new coach is after Beaty gets fired can make up for the lack of development during his redshirt season though.

It's a verbal until a better school comes along. I have learned not to get my hopes up when it comes to KU Football recruiting.

We'll know in 6 days what KU has or doesn't have in our recruiting class. This is why most people don't become coach football coaches, your life revolves around a bunch of 18 year old kids making a decision for or against you.

At this point as long as any able-bodied kid is willing to come on to the team as opposed to walking away ....we are moving in the right direction.

IIRC - Tornedon is a freshman that made some all-conference teams. So much for mandatory RS and lack of player development.

He is a sophomore not a freshman. And he got torched most of the season, although he was one of the brighter spots.

Thanks for the correction on his year.

The fact that some recognized him as one of the better DB's in the conference would seem to contradict the perception that he got torched most of the season.

You can build quality players through the program if you know how to develop players. Who we bring in has certainly not been the problem. It's been the revolving door of assistant and head coaches and their abilities to develop and teach, including implementing effective schemes. You aren't going to convince me that a Kansas kid can't compete with those MAC schools, ISU, or KSU when all those schools are doing significantly better than us with equal or lesser talent. We aren't going to be OU or UT and bring in recruits at a top tier. That's not happening, so develop your talent and do it well!
