The Kansas Jayhawks are in the middle of one of the most successful offseasons in the better part of a decade, as head coach Lance Leipold continues to add key members to his squad.
The Jayhawks found another addition in the class of 2024 with the commitment of three-star running back Harry Stewart announcing his decision to head to Lawrence. The Texas native received offers from 18 different schools including Baylor, BYU, Indiana, Missouri, Michigan, Texas A&M, and more, but after a heavy push from running backs coach Jonathan Wallace, Stewart elected to commit to Kansas.
Stewart becomes the fourth commit in three days for the Jayhawks joining four-star cornerback Austin Alexander, three-star OT Harrison Utley, and three-star LB Jacorey Stewart in Lawrence.
Stewart is listed as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports index and currently ranks as the nation’s 575th overall prospect. He also checks in as the 45th-overall running back prospect in the country, and the 96th-ranked player in the state of Texas.
National scouting analyst Gabe Brooks spoke on Harry Stewart saying that he is a, “Good-sized back with a seemingly ready-to-play build and stout lower body. Size not verified but looks the part of listed 5-10, 205. Typically hits the hole with purpose and makes good use of size. Above average run finisher with corresponding strength accompanied by consistent slipperiness,” and views him as a “Power Five prospect who could become a multi-year starter with a ceiling beyond the college game.”
Stewart now heads to Lawrence in the Jayhawks 2024 class, and with more and more players committing to Kansas seemingly on a daily basis, Lance Leipold’s squad is one to look out for.
