Thought to be one of the Kansas football team’s deepest positions this fall, the Jayhawks’ receiving corps suffered an unexpected blow just days before the start of preseason camp.

When Kansas football coach David Beaty makes a public appearance or fields questions from reporters, he often finds himself on the topics of KU’s quarterback competition and/or the program’s current star defensive linemen.
