Kansas football coach Lance Leipold said at his weekly press conference that he still doesn’t know whether starting quarterback Jason Bean will be available this week when the Jayhawks play at Texas.
But Leipold praised the way Jalon Daniels, who was the No. 3 QB a week ago, has responded since KU needed the sophomore QB against Kansas State.
“I really tip my hat to him, because he stayed locked in and prepared,” Leipold said of Daniels. “And I think that showed.”
Steven Sims has already started to notice a change when it comes to the KU quarterbacks.
"Once Miles (Kendrick) came in those guys (Peyton Bender, Carter Stanley), they've taken on the competition, they've taken it head on," Sims said.
Sure enough, the quarterbacks aren't the only ones hoping to show improvement.
Sims, who will be returning for his senior season, said his personal goals include putting on some weight to be able to endure more hits.
A team goal, however?
"We're tired of losing," Sims said. "So everybody's coming to work competitive."
Kansas football David Beaty talked about his 2018 recruiting class during his National Signing Day press conference Wednesday, the balance between high school players and junior college transfers, and how much pressure he feels to win in his fourth season.
