Tyler Holmes, a 6-3, 275-pound defensive tackle from Sachse, Texas, has made an oral commitment to Kansas, according to Rivals.com.
Holmes recorded 104 tackles this season and said that his college choice was influenced by Coach Charlie Weis retaining assistant coach Buddy Wyatt, who helped recruit Holmes. Other schools in the mix included Memphis, North Texas and Arkansas State.
Holmes becomes the Jayhawks' ninth commitment. The national letter of intent signing day for football is Feb. 1.
