K-State not short on QB drama, again
By David Ubben
Grant Gregory’s graduation gives way to a three-way quarterback battle in Manhattan between Carson Coffman, Chris Harper and Sammuel Lamur. Coffman opened last season as the starter, but was relegated to the bench after three games by coach Bill Snyder in favor of Gregory. Gregory, of course, lost the initial quarterback battle, and there's little to suggest the starter in the spring or fall will still be the starter in December.
Harper, a speedy Oregon transfer, could find a position elsewhere on the field if he loses out to Lamur or Coffman.
He could inject some excitement into a Wildcat offense that loses Brandon Banks, so no matter the outcome of the quarterback battle, expect Harper to find his way on the field somehow.
Harper threw nine passes at Oregon before citing Snyder’s return as a reason to move closer to his hometown of Wichita, Kan.
Coffman didn’t make it off the bench for the final five games of the Wildcats’ season, and he’ll be ready to chase the starting job once again.
Lamur is a JUCO transfer who, if nothing else, talks a nice game.
