It’s been a nice 24 hours for Kansas football. David Beaty’s young program landed not one but two transfers from Alabama.

The first came Thursday when Daylon Charlot, a former Top 100 recruit from Louisiana, announced on Twitter he was transferring to KU. He caught two passes in 2015 as a freshman.

The second came Friday when Charles Baldwin, ranked by some recruiting sites as the top junior college O-lineman in the 2016 signing class, said he was going to Kansas as well.

Alabama had dismissed the 6-foot-5, 315-pound former five-star prospect in May for a “violation of team rules.”

Both players will have to sit out the 2016 season at KU.
