K-State Slate: 6.3.14 - Taylor Laird is officially a Wildcat

That right there? 28 minutes of senior season highlights from the newest Wildcat.

Bracket dropped his daily profile, this time checking in on Zach Nemechek, and TB and Jon (mostly TB) responded to Swish Appeal's scathing editorial last week on the Romero situation by answering some questions from their editor.

The biggest concern we all had with Daniel Sams leaving was depth at quarterback, even though his decision to switch to wide receiver dropped him to fourth on the depth chart. Well, per a staff report from the Capital-Journal, which sources GoPowercat.com, the hole has been filled as 6'4" 230 Taylor Laird, a redshirt freshman from Sacramento City College, is now officially on the K-State roster. Laird's a dual-threat who threw for almost 2,000 yards and ran for 668 as a senior at Oakmont High School in Rosemont, Calif. He was knocked out of action in only his second game at Sacramento with a broken fibula and received a medical redshirt, which means he gets four years to play four in Manhattan.

Up at the top of the page, where there'd normally be a picture, there's a 27-minute YouTube clip of Laird's senior season highlights. Enjoy.

ESPN's Eric Williams reports that Jeromey Clary is absent from the Chargers' OTAs due to shoulder and hip surgery. It's not known whether he'll be around for the start of training camp. In other ex-Cat news, Ed Prince has signed with the Winnepeg Blue Bombers. Prince, you'll recall, was one of the two players (along with Deon Murphy) who bailed out when Bill Snyder returned to the sideline. Prince joins the Bombers from another set of Bombers; he played last year in Salina.

Adam Kramer at Kegs 'n Eggs dug up the first offshore betting lines for conference championships. K-State is 8/1 to win the Big 12, behind Oklahoma, Baylor, Texas, and Oklahoma State.

Linked this in the comments yesterday, but if you missed it you're going to want to check out Brad Wolverton's longform at The Chronicle of Higher Education detailing the recruitment of Marvin Clark, who almost ended up in Manhattan before choosing Michigan State..

Yeah, that's it for today. Welcome to June.
