With the spring game this Saturday, Gracey gave us some great purple fashion and accessory advice so we all look our best for the game!

Jordan Willis continues to move up the draft boards. This week the former K-State standout appears to be a potential 22nd overall pick to the Dolphins, and because of this rumor Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald broke down film of the former college DE. (Adam Beasley, Miami Herald)

Injuries are nothing new to Kansas State or their fans and this spring appears to be no different, with coach Snyder estimating at least 6 offensive starters, and 3 defensive starters will miss the Spring Game due to injuries. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

With returning starter, Jesse Ertz, sidelined this spring due to shoulder surgery, Alex Delton has been taking the first team reps, while redshirt freshman Skylar Thompson has been handling the second team. And it appears the reps have helped Thompson continue to master the complex offense that Bill Snyder runs. (Ken Corbitt, Capital Journal)

Baseball

The BatCats moved back over .500 by sweeping the double header against New Mexico. The first win was a slugfest that saw Jake Scudder smack a 3-run homer, which was his second on the day. Game two featured a pitching dual, which saw K-State hold off a late rally by New Mexico to win 3-2. Next up for the BatCat is West Virginia who travel to Manhattan for a weekend series beginning Friday night. (Avery Olson, The Collegian)
