Opposing quarterbacks loved the idea of testing true freshman cornerback Karon Prunty — or at least they did for awhile. It seems the more Kansas football foes learn about Prunty, the less inclined they are to challenge him.
Kansas football coach Les Miles can’t seem to get through a press conference these days without mentioning one of the program’s youngest talents by name. Miles doesn’t necessarily have to be asked about the secondary or even the KU defense, but inevitably he will find a way to bring up cornerback Karon Prunty.
