Devonta Jason, a five-star receiver (Rivals) from Landry-Walker High School in New Orleans pledged to the Jayhawks in early February has remained firm since, passing on offers and non-stop calls from program that have actually won a road game in the last seven years.
Jason and teammate Corione Harris, a four-star defensive back — a third Landry-Walker player, three-star defensive end Josh Smith, committed to Kansas on Sunday — are the crown jewels of a class ranked fourth in the Big 12 and 12th nationally.
"People were asking me if they gave me something," Jason told Bleacher Report. "Everybody was going crazy. They wanted to know what I was thinking. I'm just going to be me."
Turns out "being me" for Devonta Jason includes rejecting a chance to play at Alabama, Oklahoma or anywhere else.
"Kansas," he says one coach texted him. "Really?"
While it's a non-binding pledge and we're months from signing day, the nation's fourth-ranked receiver is fully committed to joining the Jayhawks in 2018. And he doesn't think it's the least bit crazy.
