Jayhawks land 20 signees on national signing day

Kansas Jayhawks unveiled a 2012 football class of 20 players, yesterday. Head coach Charlie Weis stated that he believed the Jayhawks addressed many needs and filled holes on the team with the recruiting class, but also stressed the Jayhawks are not done possibly looking to add a few other players to the class later on.
