"I love coach Dearmon," Easters once told me of the Kansas OC, who was a big part of keeping him in the Jayhawks' class. After his early commitment to KU, schools like Cincinnati inquired as to the nature of his pledge, but Easters remained firm to the Jayhawks. He didn't have a perfect senior year, but he did lead a clutch comeback win on national television.
