In which BracketCat counts down the seventh day until the 2020 kickoff with a profile of Kansas State running back Keyon Mozee.

#6 Jordon Brown
K-State lost a lot of speed and athleticism at running back when Jordon Brown (6) graduated after one season. When he was fully healthy, Brown was an explosive difference-maker in 2019. Enter explosive freshman sparkplug Keyon Mozee!

Disclaimer: As the 2020 football season still is “technically” scheduled to proceed as planned in Manhattan, with the recent delay of our season opener until Sept. 12 against Arkansas State, we will reset and continue this Countdown for just a little bit longer...

Goal No. 6: SELF-DISCIPLINE. Do it right; don’t accept less.

Keyon Mozee (b. March 14, 2002) is a shifty, speedy young running back from Lee’s Summit High School North in Missouri who is likely to see playing time in at least four games in 2020, mainly due to his explosive potential, but he still could redshirt in this projection.

Mozee played under head coach Jamar Mozee at Lee’s Summit North, where he was rated the 76th-best running back in the Class of 2020 by ESPN, while the organization viewed him as the 20th-best player in the state of Missouri.

He earned first-team all-district and second-team all-state honors as a senior from the Missouri Football Coaches Association after rushing for 2,127 yards and 22 touchdowns for the Broncos, including a 1,049-yard, 10-touchdown performance as a senior.

Mozee also caught 42 passes for 310 yards and three touchdowns as a prep, while he totaled 410 kickoff return yards and prepped with K-State linebacker Kienen Gaskin.

He picked K-State over offers from Miami University in Ohio, Missouri Western, North Dakota, North Texas and West Virginia, as well as interest from the University of Kansas.

Mozee’s main recruiters at K-State were offensive line coach Conor Riley and running backs coach Brian Anderson, his new position coach.
