9 Blueshirts total

TOTAL 2022 RECRUITING CLASS
19 SCHOLARSHIP = 4 + 6 + 9 blueshirts
2 PREFERRED WALK-ONS

NOTE on "Blueshirts" -- since it is my understanding that these players' rides are counting against 2022 scholarship limits even though they played Fall 2021, the rules must have changed (either temporarily due to COVID-19 or permanently due to changes like the transfer portal) since the 2017 definition of blueshirts posted in this thread was published.


2022 TEAM RECRUITING RANKING as of 2021-12-16

NAT(B12) SITE

NR (10) RIVALS.com n.rivals.com/team_rankings/2022/big12/football
.....NB: Rivals National list stops at 100; listing does not include Transfers

104 (10) 247Sports.com 247sports.com/Season/2022-Football/CompositeTeamRankings/

69 (10) ESPN.com www.espn.com/college-football/insider/st...national-signing-day (NB: ESPN Insiders only ( includes ESPN+ subscribers))

LINKS TO LISTING SITES
ESPN: www.espn.com/college-sports/football/rec..._/id/2305/class/2022

Link to the 247Sports Kansas Football 2022 Commitments list (includes transfers; not sortable; open for all to read).

Link to the Rivals JayhawkSlant 2022 KU Football Commits List. (only lists HS commitments)
1. As with the 247Sports list, the JayhawkSlant list is open for all to see, not just JayhawkSlant members.
2. Same is true for the links to the individual recruit data accessed by clicking on the recruit name in the JayhawkSlant list.
3. The list is also sortable, just click on the column name to sort on that column.
Options I frequently use --
A. Sort on RATING to see who are the top rated recruits.
B. Sort on POS (that's Position, people:evil:) to group and count recruits by position.
NB: sorting on NAME to alphabetize the list is essentially a waste, as it sorts on given name, not family name.
As far as I can tell there is no nested sort capability. The user can only sort on one criterion at a time.

BLUF: KU currently has at least four (4) more 2022 rides to offer this recruiting cycle.
More if there are losses to the Transfer portal.

Source: Jon Kirby at JayhawkSlant. (pay site)

14 scholarships available for Fall 2022.
6 signed (5 HS + 1 JUCO), but HS Ellis is a greyshirt, will count against 2023
5 Transfer commits
=10 new scholarships awarded
4 scholarships remaining TODAY, not counting make ups for future portal losses

Under the new rules, if any portal losses, can add 1 for 1 up to 7 additional rides to cover them, so...

11 maximum scholarships remaining to be filled..



EDITED FOR: Anthony Davis decommiting as of DEC 15 and I just found out Mason Ellis, signing this month, is a greyshirt, will count against 2023 limits.
Greyshirts cannot enroll full-time, practice or play in Fall 2022.
His scholarship and eligibility clock starts in Jan 2023, and he will have 5 years to play 4.
He can enroll as a part-time student (KU or JUCO, no scholly) Fall 2022, but cannot participate in anything except classwork.
