Weekly Press Conference
Notes from day two’s offense press conferences:
- K-State co-offensive coordinators Dana Dimel and Del Miller both seem pretty comfortable with what they have coming back at quarterback, especially Joe Hubener:
“(Hubener’s) velocity is the best we’ve had on the football in years.” – Dana Dimel
- Del Miller said that Hubener has improved his vertical from 29 to 33 inches since he arrived on campus, and he has also improved his 40-yard dash time from 5.0 seconds to 4.7 seconds.
- As for incoming freshman Alex Delton, both Dimel and Miller said that he will get every chance to compete for the starting job if he’s ready. Dimel added that it could be a situation where Delton still plays some even if he isn’t ready to be the main starter. Dimel definitely expects Delton to be a good one by the time he’s done.
- Both Curry Sexton and Del Miller went out of their way to mention Dominique Heath as a wide receiver to watch out for next season. Heath will be a redshirt freshman next season.
- Miller thinks very highly of Jake Waters’ NFL chances. Miller says some scouts that have come in haven’t been interested in Jake, but others have said “hey, Brees isn’t very tall either.”
- UCLA QB Brett Hundley compared K-State’s defense to Stanford when asked for a comparison. That’s good news because the Cardinal just handcuffed the UCLA offense in a 31-10 win on November 28th.
K-State OT Luke Hayes talks about the transition to D-1 football this spring.
