It'll be interesting to see how Chris Harper fits in at Kansas State.
Harper, who spent his freshman season playing football at Oregon, is transferring to K-State and will be eligible for the 2010 season. The former Northwest High standout is intent on playing quarterback at KSU, and he certainly fits the Bill Snyder profile for that position.
It was Snyder who got tremendous mileage out of dual-threat types Michael Bishop, Jonathan Beasley and Ell Roberson during his first tenure as coach. All three of those quarterbacks were raw passers who become better under Snyder's tutelage.
But they also played before the explosion of spread offenses around the country, and particularly in the Big 12. It'll be interesting to see whether Harper can become a good-enough passer to play quarterback. Right now, he's probably not. But he'll have more than a year to get better.
