Cummings Commits To Kansas
Phog.net Recruiting Writer
Posted Jun 4, 2010
Turner Gill and the Kansas Jayhawks are on a roll this week.
Last weekend, Gill and Co. landed a commitment from one of the fastest defensive backs in central Florida, when Lake Mary High School defensive back
gave his pledge to the program.
Today, the Jayhawks have added one of the most productive quarterbacks in all of Texas to their 2011 recruiting class, in Killeen High School product
The talented signal caller said he was leaning toward making a commitment when he and his father arrived in Lawrence this morning for their scheduled unofficial visit. But it was the time he spent with the
coaching staff that pushed him past the tipping point.
"They seem liked they were family oriented, and cared genuinely about me as a person, not only as an athlete," Cummings explained. "They seemed like good, honest people."
During the visit, Cummings not only met with coaches and players, but had the chance to tour the athletic facilities as well as the campus itself, and learn a little bit more about how Kansas Athletics supports its student-athletes academically.
This was his first trip to the Sunflower State, and earlier this week Cummings admitted he was a little skeptical about what he would find. It didn't take long, however, for his future home to make an impression.
"The campus was bigger than I thought it would be, and a lot nicer than I thought it would be," he said. "So that was a pleasant surprise."
In 2009, Cummings threw for more than 2,500 yards, rushed for almost 900 more and accounted for 41 touchdowns in leading the Kangaroos to a second-round appearance in the Texas Class 4A state playoffs.
After speaking at length with Gill and Long, both highly successful college quarterbacks and coaches, he's convinced the Kansas system is one in which he can make the most of his considerable abilities – and aiming to make an impact early in his career.
"I feel like it's going to be a good fit for me," he said. "As soon as I get on campus I'm going to start striving to be the starter."
Cummings is the fourth member of the Jayhawks' 2011 recruiting class, which also includes Robinson, Tonkawa (OK) High School linebacker
, and Wichita (KS) Heights High School running back
