Kansas football roster breakdown by class/position
A breakdown of the Kansas football roster by position and class shows that the Jayhawks have one quarterback in each class and decent balance at several other positions.
It also shows that KU has developed a heavy reliance at recruits from junior college at defensive line and in the secondary. All nine defensive linemen are either juniors and seniors and there is one freshman defensive back and redshirt freshman.
