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 has one more season 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 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.

Our two-deep at linebacker is filled with scholarship players, most of them veteran, but after that, it drops off a bit.

Other than true freshman Will Davis, there aren't any contenders for third-string spots who aren't walk-ons or who have major injury histories, so Loomis has as good a chance as anybody to be one of those, given his experience.
