Moments after Damani Mosby says there's no possibility of him committing anytime soon, he points out that his recruitment has a solid leader.
Kansas has to like its standing with Mesa (Ariz.) Community college defensive end, it will need to be patient. At this juncture, though, the Jayhawks couldn't be in better shape. All that's left now is to hang on tight while other schools come calling.
"Absolutely, Kansas is still the leader," Mosby said. "They actually came to my game on Saturday."
Things may change in the future, but nobody can predict that. Mosby picked up an offer from Western Kentucky last week and other, larger schools, are testing the waters. Mosby's recruitment could have a different feel a month from now.
"I'm talking to Nebraska now," Mosby said. "They popped into the school office and stuff like that. We just exchanged information. They're going to watch me. I don't know how interested they are as far as an offer, but I do have the contact info and a coach's card and all that. We're going to go from there."
KU assistant Jeff Blasko is handling Mosby's recruitment for the Jayhawks and it will be up to him to hold off other suitors if the do, indeed, come calling. For now, though, his job is easy.
Well, easy-ish anyway.
"I'm going to New Mexico on Dec. 6 and trying to set up a visit to North Texas for the 12th of October," Mosby said. "We haven't figured out a time for a visit yet because they have an away game on our bye week. We're thinking about just waiting until my season is over."
Whatever happens from here will have little effect on Mosby's timetable. If new offers materialize, great. If not, he won't lose much sleep. He's long since decided to draw this out. Nothing's changing that at this point.
"I'm almost 100-percent sure I'm not going to make a decision until close to signing day," Mosby said. "I only have seven offers and feel like I can pull some more. I don't want to jump the gun because there are other schools that might want to offer me."
