Well, I've apparently been off by one day this entire time because I based my calculations on playing the first game on a Saturday, when it instead will be played on a Friday. So this is a catch-up day, starting with this post, which apparently should have been posted yesterday if I was remotely capable of counting from the correct starting point.
#74 Scott Frantz
Position: Offensive Line
Previous College: None
Status: On Scholarship
Scott A. Frantz (June 7, 1996) is a highly touted offensive lineman out of high school who made a push for playing time prior to redshirting the 2015 season. Now he will compete for a starting spot along the offensive front, most likely at left tackle. He picked K-State over offers from Iowa State, Kansas, Miami, Minnesota, Missouri and Purdue.
A three-year letter-winner for Free State High School under head coach Bob Lisher, Frantz led the Freebirds to an 8-4 record and a run to the state semifinals in 2014. The team went 10-2 and advanced to the semifinals in 2012.
Frantz was rated the 48th-best offensive tackle nationally and the fourth-best player in the state of Kansas by Rivals.com. He also was ranked as the second-best offensive tackle in the state by Scout.com.
Named one of the top 11 players in the state and to the All-Class 6A teams by both The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle in 2014, Frantz also was a first-team All-Metro selection by The Kansas City Star in 2014.
Frantz also was named to theFamily Insurance All-USA Kansas Team as a senior, earned honorable-mention all-state honors as a junior and was named a first-team All-Sunflower League selection in both years.
He was selected to play in the 2015 Kansas Shrine Bowl. He also played basketball. Watch his highlights here.
