Les Miles just scored big on the recruiting trail.
Brennon Scott, a 4-star linebacker out of Dallas, TX, gave his verbal commit to Kansas via Twitter on Tuesday evening. Nationally, Scott is a consensus top-25 LB and top 350 recruit. He chose Kansas out of a top five that included Texas, Auburn, USC, and Oregon. In total, he had nearly three dozen FBS offers, including 10 SEC schools, 5 PAC-12 schools, 6 Big-10 schools, and 4 other Big-12 schools.
The lead recruiter for Scott was new KU receivers coach Emmett Jones. Based on interviews available on Rivals and elsewhere, it appears as if Scott was looking for a place where he could play earlier rather than later.
