94 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Hakeem Akinola


Hakeem Akinola
Redshirt Sophomore
6-4 | 310
Fullerton, Calif.


Position: Defensive Tackle

Previous College: Fullerton Community College

Projection: Third-String

Status: On Scholarship

Hakeem Akinola was a late addition to the 2012 class who was added a month after National Signing Day.

On the positive side, he's 310 pounds and could be a valuable addition to K-State's defensive line depth.

On the negative side, he missed almost all of two seasons with injuries, so there's some questions about his health and durability.

Luckily, he was able to both redshirt and medical redshirt, which means he arrives in Manhattan this summer as a sophomore with three years to play three.

But there's some murmurs that his grades might not yet be in order, so wait and see.
