While things didn't go well on the field last weekend for KU, the Jayhawks did make a positive impression on three-star outside linebacker Javaris Russell of Grenada (Mississippi) High School. The 6-1, 195-pound Russell was on campus for an official visit, and he gave KU high marks. Russell was previously committed to Mississippi State but backed off his pledge to the Bulldogs late last week. Russell has offers from Kansas, Missouri, Mississippi State, Cal, Cincinnati, Memphis and others.
