Sophomore John Hubert is the current leader in the clubhouse for the top RB spot in the ‘Cats offense according to the depth chart for Saturday’s home game against Kent State. Hubert, who gained 91 yards on 17 carries against Eastern Kentucky, is now K-State’s starter over Bryce Brown and Angelo Pease. Pease is actually listed ahead of Brown, perhaps indicating a sign of frustration from the coaching staff over Brown’s slow start.
The ‘Cats also made a myriad of changes up front on the struggling offensive line. B.J. Finney, Colten Freeze and Nick Puetz will now start in the middle. Obviously, the poor play line play in the first game had to be addressed and now Puetz, a junior, will start at left guard, replacing Keenan Taylor. Finney moves to center to fill in for injured Shaun Simon. The senior Freeze will start on the right side in Finney’s old spot.
Hopefully the shuffle up front will lead to bigger holes for the newly ordained Hubert and better pass protection for Collin Klein. Kickoff for Saturday’s Kent State contest is set for just after 6 p.m. at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
