Kapaun Mount Carmel senior Michael Reynolds has made an oral commitment to play football at Kansas.

Kansas was the first school to offer him, and after an official visit this past weekend, he committed.

It’s just closer to home and it seemed like a better fit for me,” Reynolds said.

Last Tuesday, TCU coach Gary Patterson made an in-home visit to Reynolds and offered him a scholarship.

Indiana and Oklahoma State have always offered Reynolds, who is also a stand-out baseball player. He said he has considered trying to play baseball at KU, too.

Despite the commitment, Reynolds said he’s keeping his options open.

“I verbally committed, and I’m not totally sure I’ll stick with it,” he said.

    Congrats to Michael, but why would a kid verbal while in the coach’s office and then go home and tell the Eagle that “I’m not totally sure I’ll stick with it.” The kid is a great athlete, I’m just wondering what is going on with our great Wichita athletes these days, committing, de-committing, signing with one school, but talking with another, going to a major college for a year or two and then (getting “homesick” and) coming home to play…. It doesn’t bode well for others coming out of Wichita. If I’m a major college recruiting coach, I’ve got to ask myself, “Do I want to take a chance on a kid from Wichita that might turn around and go home after a year, or sign the kid from Texas that plays football twice a year and will honor his commitment?” I don’t like the reputation we may be getting, but more importantly, what does it say about our kids?
