#4 Daniel Sams
Previous College: None
Status: On Scholarship
Daniel Sams (b. Oct. 1, 1992) was the only quarterback to whom K-State offered a scholarship in the 2010 class.
Moreover, the coaches promised him it would remain that way. The question is why?
The answer: Sams is a freak athlete in the mold of Ell Roberson. In him, Bill Snyder likely saw the genesis of the next generation of dual-threat quarterbacks in Manhattan. This guy played six positions in high school.
Only one redshirt freshman, Allan Evridge, ever has played quarterback for Snyder on a regular basis, so don't expect Sams suddenly to jump out and be taking 10-15 snaps a game. That's Klein's job, for obvious reasons.
