New Kansas coach Turner Gill has received his biggest recruiting commitment to date when four-star prospect Brandon Bourbon switched from Stanford to the Jayhawks.

Several Kansas newspapers reported that Bourbon changed his mind and ended a six-month commitment with the Cardinal after meeting with Gill and his staff.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder from Potosi, Mo., is the 18th commitment in Kansas' class.

Bourbon's decision is a huge get for Kansas, which lost two four-star recruits after the abrupt resignation of Mark Mangino.  The loss of defensive end Geneo Grissom and junior college cornerback Dave Clark from Mangino's early commitments had left Gill scrambling.

The Lawrence Journal-World reported that Bourbon had also received offers from Notre Dame, Missouri, BYU  and Kansas State.
