Kansas defensive lineman Caleb Taylor (No. 53) celebrates with defensive end Malcolm Lee (No. 99) after making a play in the Jayhawks' Week 1 win over South Dakota, on Sept. 3, 2021.
When Kansas football’s starting nose tackle, super-senior Sam Burt, suffered an arm injury in the first quarter of the Jayhawks’ season opener, the defensive line needed one of its younger interior players to step in and fill Burt’s important role. It turned out redshirt freshman Caleb Taylor was the man for the job.
