|Staying close to home important to Hawkinson02/12/2008 JayhawkSlant.com|
There is absolutely no question that Tanner Hawkinson was a top priority for the Kansas coaching staff in the class of 2008. Early on in his recruitment, the 6-foot-6, 230-pound tight end from McPherson (KS) High School made it be known that the Jayhawks would be extremely tough to beat for his services. After attending KU's Super Jayhawk Camp on June 16, Hawkinson offered up a verbal commitment several hours later. On Wednesday morning, he made his commitment to Kansas official by signing a Letter-of-Intent.
