Landry-Walker cornerback Michael Lee committed to Kansas late Thursday night.
Lee announced his commitment on Twitter.
“After discussing my options with my brothers, family and my coaches, I have decided to announce that in the next 3 to 4 years I would be taking my talent to Kansas,” Lee said via Twitter.
The 5-foot-9, 175-pound defensive had a long list of scholarship offers, including Georgia, Miami, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Missouri, Cal and Arizona State.
Lee, rated a three-star recruit by 247 Sports, is one of 19 players from Louisiana nominated to play in the U.S. Army All-American Game in January.
Lee is the eighth player in the Class of 2017 to commit to Kansas and the third one from New Orleans. He joins St. Augustine wide receiver Takulve Williams and John Ehret receiver Travis Jordan.
All three players were recruited by Kansas assistant coach Tony Hull, who was hired by the Jayhawks in March after spending the past nine seasons as coach at Warren Easton.
Lee is also the second Landry-Walker player in the Class of 2017 to commit. Quarterback Keytaon Thompson committed to Mississippi State in December.
Landry-Walker also has two players in its Class of 2018 (cornerback Corione Harris and receiver Devonta Jason) committed to LSU.
Lee can make his nonbinding commitment official on Feb. 1, which is national signing day.
