Report: Jake Heaps to visit Kansas

It seems that Charlie Weis is looking for his own quarterback as he takes over the Kansas program. He's already had a visit from former Notre Dame quarterback and Weis recruit Dayne Crist, and now according to JayhawkSlant.com (subscription required), former BYU quarterback Jake Heaps will be making a visit to Lawrence as well.

Heaps announced that he was leaving BYU in early December. He came into the 2011 season as the team's starting quarterback but lost the job to Riley Nelson. Heaps threw for 3,768 yards and 24 touchdowns while at BYU, but it was the 17 interceptions he also threw that helped him find his way to the bench.

Now, just because Crist is considering transferring to Kansas next season, that doesn't mean the school can't bring in both Crist and Heaps if both players want to become Jayhawks. Since Crist has already graduated from Notre Dame, much like Russell Wilson did with Wisconsin this season, he could transfer to Kansas and play right away in 2012. Heaps will have to sit out the 2012 season, so it's not as if he'd lose playing time in Lawrence if Crist transferred as well.

Crist is expected to choose between Wisconsin and Kansas in the next week. As for Heaps, there's no timetable on his decision.

Report: Jake Heaps to visit Kansas

If Wiscy succeeds with two different "loophole" QB's in two successive years, the NCAA will find a way to close the loophole.  That being said, Russell Wilson is a lot better QB than Dayne Crist is, and it probably won't happen.  The only way Crist will succeed at Wiscy is by handing the ball off a lot.  
 
As for Charlie Weis, I think he gets too much credit for Tom Brady's development.  All Weis has really proven he can do is eat and talk.  Until Weis actually succeeds as a coach, his ability remains suspect.  I wonder if Jake Heaps really wants to go from great coaching at BYU to someone who comsumes programs and quarterbacks almost as fast as he comsumes buffets.
