KU's mostly inexperienced secondary progressing at preseason camp

While it’s true defensive coordinator Clint Bowen has found early signs from the Kansas football secondary encouraging at preseason practices, the program’s assistant head coach also will tell anyone listening his current opinion of the group doesn’t necessarily correlate with fall success. To truly know how the best of his defensive backs mesh as a unit, Bowen will have to wait and see cornerbacks Hasan Defense and Shakial Taylor, safeties Mike Lee and Bryce Torneden, and nickelback Derrick Neal react to in-game adversity.

Experience as true freshmen expected to fuel sophomore success for KU trio

Headed into the 2016 season, the Kansas football team needed all the on-field help it could get — on all fronts.

Tony Hull makes 'Louisianimals' part of Kansas football vernacular

Associate head coach creating recruiting pipeline to 'The Boot'

Three KU football players among Big 12's top underclassmen
