#47 Jared Loomis
Previous College: Dodge City Community College
Projection: Special Teams
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.
