Collin Klein will take the first snap with K-State’s offense when preseason practices begin in early August. From there, it is Snyder’s “hope” that Justin Tuggle and Sammuel Lamur are capable of competing with Klein for the right to take the first snap with K-State’s offense against Eastern Kentucky.
Doesn’t exactly sound like Snyder will need until the Tuesday before opening day to name his starter, does it?
That’s not to say Klein has already won the job. He hasn’t. But it is clearly his job to lose.
“He’s made tremendous strides in regards to his leadership of our football team,” Snyder said of Klein. “That’s extremely important. He’s made tremendous strides in his understanding. He’s a very intelligent young guy and grasps concepts well. He’s just grown and grown and grown in his understanding of the offense and how to have dominant control of our offense.”
