6 PLUS 1 DAYS TO (TENTATIVE) 2020 KICKOFF: Kienen Gaskin

In which BracketCat counts down the seventh day until the 2020 kickoff with a profile of Kansas State linebacker Kienen Gaskin.

#58 Trent Tanking
No. 54 is traditionally the number of an offensive lineman at K-State. So much so, in fact, that I couldn’t find a single picture of a Wildcat wearing one to illustrate this entry. So you’ll have to settle for walk-on linebacker Trent Tanking (58) instead...

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...

Kienen Gaskin (b. March 14, 2002) is a walk-on linebacker from Lee’s Summit High School North in Missouri who is very likely to redshirt in 2020.

He was a high school teammate of K-State running back Keyon Mozee, who was profiled earlier today.

Gaskin chose walking on at K-State over scholarship offers from Central Michigan, Missouri State and Western Illinois, plus interest from Iowa State, Kansas and South Dakota State.
