Kansas State football’s Collin Klein keeps his quarterbacks happy

In college football’s transfer portal era, building depth at quarterback has become a year-round challenge.

That is what has made Kansas State offensive coordinator Collin Klein’s ability to stockpile quarterbacks and for the most part keep them in the program with minimal defections all the more remarkable.

“I think for starters it’s a testament to their character and work ethic, and how they go about their business,” Klein said of his quarterbacks during a recent Catbacker Tour stop in Salina. “Every one of those guys cares greatly about Kansas State and their teammates.”

Of the four quarterbacks who completed spring practice last week, none of them decided to leave. And last week the Wildcats welcomed another one aboard when Minnesota transfer Jacob Knuth announced his commitment to K-State.
