The Kansas State Wildcats kick off their annual spring game this Saturday, April 26th in what should be an exciting day for players and fans alike. The spring game is often run by the offense and provides quality entertainment for those in attendance. With that being said there are a few things to watch as we get our first look at the 2014-15 Wildcats on Saturday.
1. How has Daniel Sams adjusted to the move to WR
There never was a consensus at the quarterback position last season. JUCO transfer Jake Waters started every single game for the Wildcats but Daniel Sams saw plenty of snaps at the quarterback position but not enough apparently, the soon to be Junior asked Bill Snyder about possibly switching from throwing the passes (something he never truly excelled at and was used mostly for his running capability) to catching them.
Snyder okayed the move and Sams has been trying his hand at his new position thus far in the spring practices.
While it will be interesting to see how Sams reacts an adapts to his new position his athleticism is unquestioned and I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Daniel Sams lining up behind the center.
Even if Sams is wholly focused on playing wide out Bill Sndyer has never been one to not use a weapon and I think Daniel Sams will be more of a jack of all trades player this year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him play at all three of the major skill positions wide receiver, running back and quarterback.
