Big 12 football: Kansas State eyeing 3 quarterbacks
Some schools go into August with two quarterbacks battling for the starting job. Kansas State goes into August with three quarterbacks in contention: Carson Coffman, Collin Klein and Sammuel Lamur.
“We came out of the spring with three young guys that were viable contenders for the No. 1 quarterback spot,” K-State coach Bill Snyder said. “Is that good or bad? You could make a case either way.
“We’ll go into the fall with three young guys competing for the No. 1 position. I can’t tell you that I have an answer in regards to who that individual might be. The positive aspect of that is that all three of them will diligently compete, and consequently I think that makes themselves and each other better. I honestly believe that. I also understand the downside.
“But nevertheless, it is what it is. We just do not have a clear-cut No. 1 right now. The first snap that the quarterback will take with our No. 1′s will be Carson Coffman. Came out of the spring not necessarily as the No. 1, but that individual will take the first rep, and then Collin Klein and Sammuel Lamur, and all three of them, I think, will compete diligently.
“All three of them were better at the end of the spring than they were at the beginning. I’d like to think that they are making improvements as the summer progresses.”
Coffman is a senior from Peculiar, Mo., who completed 71 of 117 passes last season for 860 yards, with two touchdowns and four interceptions. Klein is a sophomore from Loveland, Colo., who completed his only pass last year, for 27 yards. Lamur is a junior college transfer from West Palm Beach, Fla.
