Bio

Position: Long Snapper

Previous College: None

Projection: Starter

Status: On Scholarship?

Marcus Woodside-Heit (b. Nov. 3, 1990) is a Kansas product who returns after serving as the full-time long snapper each of the last two seasons. I've heard conflicting reports that he might have been put on scholarship.

Heit might not be a familiar name to most, but for a guy 99 percent of the fan base hasn't heard of, he fills a pretty big role on the team. In 2011, he played in 12 of 13 games and was perfect on all 128 snaps.

The game Heit didn't see the field in was the Cotton Bowl, which he missed due to suspension for academic reasons. True freshman Dalton Converse replaced him and did pretty well for burning his redshirt so late.

In 2012, Heit reclaimed his starting job and saw action in 12 games. He was true on all 124 snaps. The only game he missed was Texas, with an undisclosed injury. I'm not sure who filled in for him because Converse redshirted.

A two-year letterwinner for Derby High School under coach Brandon Clark, a former K-State wide receiver, Heit also lettered three years in track, participating in javelin and discus. He should have fine senior season for the Wildcats.
