#50 Nick Puetz
Redshirt Junior
6-4 | 306
Salina, Kan.

Bio

Position: Offensive Line

Previous Colleges: Coffeyville Community College; University of Wyoming

Projection: Second-String

Status: Preferred Walk-On

Nick Puetz certainly did not follow a direct path to K-State, a school that is a little more than an hour away from his hometown of Salina.

First, he went south to Coffeyville, where he played two seasons for the Red Ravens, earning multiple all-conference honors and national awards.

Then he trekked northwest to Laramie, Wyo., where he enrolled in January 2010 and participated in spring practice with the Cowboys.

For whatever reason, it didn't work out for him up there, so he transferred back to K-State that summer and sat out last season in accordance with NCAA transfer rules, using his redshirt.

Although some thought Puetz was on scholarship, it was learned a few months ago that he still is a walk-on, likely because he transferred so late and all our scholarships were filled until June.

Depending on how things shake out this summer, though, one could become available for him, especially if he hits the gas in fall camp and beats out projected starter Colten Freeze for a starting job at right guard.
