Andale, Kan.

Bio

Position: Offensive Line

Previous College: None

Projection: Scout Team

Status: Walk-On

Nick Ward (b. Oct. 2, 1988) has the following phrase listed on his bio for both the 2008 and 2009 seasons: "Did not see any playing time as a member of the scout team."

Said bio hasn't been updated for 2010 yet, but I don't recall him seeing any significant playing time last season, either.

While I'm sure Ward is a hard worker — you have to be, to survive multiple walk-on seasons in a Bill Snyder-coached program — being 6-foot-1 isn't going to cut it on a Big 12-level offensive line.

Although I won't rule out Ward climbing up to third-string status mainly because he is a fifth-year senior, I can't see him seriously challenging for a starting or primary backup role. I expect him to remain on the scout team.
