The Kansas football program got a huge boost Wednesday, landing four-star defensive end Deshawn Warner, beating out Ohio State and Michigan, among other programs.

Warner, hailing from Arizona, is the highest-rated recruit in Jayhawks' history.

It's a beautiful day for KU football. Let's see what the Jayhawks are getting in Warner below.

Kansas Football Lands Four-Star DE Deshawn Warner

Warner is the 148th ranked prospect nationally and No. 3 senior in Arizona as the 10th-best edge in the country.

He dominated competition his senior year, compiling 63 tackles, 20 for a loss, along with 16 sacks.

With Jalon Daniels coming back in 2024 to follow up the most successful Jayhawks' season in roughly 15 years, the future is bright in Lawrence.

Lance Leipold is building something special and Warner's commitment helps cement that. It's easy to imagine Warner flying off the edge late in Big 12 conference season, and his status will make it easier for Leipold to attract other recruits as well.

Slowly but surely, Kansas is becoming not just a basketball school.
