Kansas cornerback Hasan Defense waits on the sidelines prior to the start of the 2017 Spring Game on Saturday, April 15 at Memorial Stadium.
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.
