47 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Jared Loomis


#47 Jared Loomis
Redshirt Junior
6-0 | 230
Macksville, Kan.


Position: Linebacker

Previous College: Dodge City Community College

Projection: Special Teams

Status: Walk-On

Jared Edward Loomis (b. Nov. 17, 1989) is a walk-on linebacker from Dodge City Community College who redshirted in 2010 and will have two more seasons of eligibility.

Loomis amassed 167 career tackles as a Conquistador and was named honorable mention All-Jayhawk Conference both seasons. He also was part of the 2007 state championship team for Macksville High School and was all-state.

He likely picked K-State for its civil engineering program. Although most likely to contribute on the Cats' scout team, Loomis' career is accomplished enough that he fits the profile of a possible contributor on special teams.

And given uncertain injuries to Jarell Childs and Alex Hrebec, it's not altogether out of the question that he might ascend to third-string status with excellent performance in practices and further attrition in the linebacker corps.
