Football: BYU’s Heaps to Kansas

Not sure how much ex-BYU quarterback Jake Heaps wanted to come to Cal, but the word I got late last week was the Bears weren’t interested.

On Thursday, Heaps announced he will transfer to Kansas to play for new coach Charlie Weis. Notre Dame backup Dayne Crist also is headed to KU where he will be reunited with Weis, who recruited him to South Bend.

    Attaboy JT! Staying loyal to your recruits will likely allow to land even more recruits. This was a smart move.

    Happy to see this. Hopefully heaps can dominate at ku and kline can be a star with us.

    I think we have enough Elite 11 QB’s competing for the job (Bridgford, Hinder, and Kilne), plus highly rated Boehm, competing for the #1 QB slot after Maynard leaves, that we don’t need any more QB’s now. I agree with Rollonubears that being loyal to your recruits can help bring in new recruits and also prevent existing players from thinking about transferring.
