Offensive lineman Manase Foketi has left K-State and wants a release from his scholarship to finish his career closer to home in California. K-State has not granted the release at this point.

On the other hand, withholding a scholarship release accomplishes little and is exceedingly unpopular.
Former K-State golfer Aaron Watkins fired a two-over-par 72 and stands tied for 23rd after the first round of the U.S. Open. Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson are four shots and six shots behind Watkins, respectively. Watkins is in great shape to make the cut if he plays a solid round today.
