Kansas head football coach Charlie Weis made his second swing through the city of Wichita in a month after he and his staff held a high school football camp at Bishop Carroll High School.
"This is the first time we've ever run a satellite camp. This is a great facility for us to come to, a great high school program for us to come to," Weis said.
Weis' arrival in Wichita comes on the heels of three key players leaving his current roster. Quarterback Jake Heaps and wideout Andrew Turzilli both announced they were transferring from the University of Kansas. Also, running back Darrien Miller left the team for personal reasons. When a reporter from KWCH asked Weis about the impact of those departures, Weis shifted the focus back to Wichita.
"We're here to talk about the Wichita-area. We're not here to talk about KU football."
Weis wasn't concerned with the players leaving Kansas. He was interested in luring players to Lawrence.
"This is about getting the players from this part of the state more familiar with our coaching staff," Weis said. "The most important thing we're doing is giving the players here an opportunity to not have to drive a long distance, to be able to be coached by our staff."
The Kansas head coach wasn't shy about recruiting head-to-head with nearby Big 12 powers.
"If they are good enough, that Kansas would be a viable option for them to go, rather than just concede to Kansas State and Oklahoma State and everyone else who's done a really nice job of recruiting this area."
