Projection: Third-String

Status: On Scholarship

Kason Kai Hostrup (Nov. 27, 1991) is a big offensive lineman who will be competing for more playing time in 2014.

Hostrup took a grayshirt in 2010, redshirted in 2011, only saw action in 2012 against Miami, and played in a reserve role in 2013 against UMass and Michigan.

At one point, he looked set to advance to second-string status as a backup tackle if he could hold off our freshmen, but that doesn't seem to have happened. He did not start for either team in the spring game and played sparingly.

I used to think Hostrup was one of those underrated recruits Rivals.com tends to undervalue because they're undersized or can't make grades. He was a textbook grayshirt who already has four springs under his belt.

Bill Snyder has a habit of turning those kinds of players into solid contributors, and sometimes superstars.

But offensive linemen are so hard to project in how they will develop, and it truly appears at this point as if we have recruited over Hostrup with JUCO standouts such as A.J. Allen and younger players such as Reid Najvar.

Prior to his arrival at K-State, Hostrup was named a Texas Top 20 offensive lineman by TexasFootball.com in 2009 as a senior at Sachse High School.

He also was named to the District 10-5A first-team as a senior and to PrepStar's All-Region team, as well as being named a second-team academic all-state selection at Sachse.
