It is hardly an official announcement, but Daniel Sams is publicly hinting that he has switched positions from quarterback to wide receiver.
Late Thursday night, the Kansas State junior described himself as a “WR for Kansas State” in an updated Twitter bio. He then retweeted someone who pointed out the change.

Sams split time at quarterback with Jake Waters last season, playing in every game and rushing for 807 yards and 11 touchdowns. He proved he was one of the most athletic players on the roster. But Waters emerged as the clear-cut starter as the year went along.
As Sams saw his playing time decrease, he said he was open to switching positions. He wasn’t giving up on playing quarterback, he just wanted to help his teammates on the field.
Sams and his possible position switch figured to be one of the biggest story lines surrounding spring football practices, which begin in early April. Now the topic is heating up in March.
