31 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Chandler Smith


#31 Chandler Smith
Redshirt Sophomore
6-1 | 232
Olathe, Kan.


Position: Long Snapper

Previous College: None

Projection: Third-String

Status: Walk-On

Chandler Jared Smith (b. May 25, 1991) was expected to vie with Marcus Heit for starting long-snapping honors.

So the fact that he was passed over by true freshman Dalton Converse, who at the time was redshirting, as Heit's emergency replacement in the Cotton Bowl is not exactly a ringing endorsement, is it?

Smith earned several honors while playing at Olathe Northwest High School, and also can play linebacker, but he mostly came to K-State for the construction science program.

Here's a video of Smith in action, if you're actually bored enough to watch highlights of a long snapper.
