John Hubert gains top RB spot

The Kansas State football team released its depth chart for Saturday’s home game against Kent State today, and there were a few changes from opening week.

John Hubert, a sophomore who rushed for 91 yards on 17 carries against Eastern Kentucky, is now K-State’s clear cut starter at running back. Following a competitive preseason at the position, Wildcats coach Bill Snyder said his top three ball-carriers were on even footing, and all three split time last week.

But Hubert did enough in his first game to separate himself from Bryce Brown and Angelo Pease. Those two players are currently interchangeable at the backup spot, but Pease is listed before Brown.

The other noticeable changes came on the offensive line, where Nick Puetz, B.J. Finney and Colten Freeze will now start in the middle. Puetz, a junior, will take over at left guard, Freeze, a senior, will start at right guard and Finney will move to center. After a dreadful opening performance, everyone knew change was coming up front.

Shaun Simon, who started the opener at center, is out with an injury. Puetz replaces Keenan Taylor. Freeze takes over for Finney as he switches positions.
