LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Former Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist sat behind a table flanked by former BYU quarterback Jake Heaps and ex-Oklahoma wide receiver Justin McCay. Over to the side sat Charlie Weis, the smile on his face stretching nearly ear to ear.
All of them are getting a second chance at Kansas.
Weis introduced the three high-profile transfers on Monday, ushering in a new era of Jayhawk football with gusto. Crist and Heaps were both among the best QBs in the country coming out of high school, and McCay was one of the nation's most dynamic wide receivers.
Weis also announced that running back Darrian Miller and wide receiver Keeston Terry are among six players who have been dismissed from the program. Quarterback Jordan Webb is among three who remain in school but are no longer with the team.
