57 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Jordan Voelker


#57 Jordan Voelker
True Senior
6-3 | 240
Newton, Kan.


Position: Defensive End

Previous College: Butler County Community College

Projection: Second-String

Status: Preferred Walk-On

Jordan Christopher Voelker (b. July 26, 1989) was somewhat of an unknown in 2010 when he mysteriously appeared on the first depth chart of the season, penciled into a backup defensive end position.

He played sparingly last season, but showed flashes of what coaches were seeing in practice. It was on full display for all to see during the spring game, when he demonstrated a relentless motor and a surprising amount of speed.

Voelker, a walk-on from Butler County, also has playing experience at tight end and wide receiver, but it appears defensive end will be his final home at K-State. Expect him to be part of the regular rotation and make an impact.
