2010 Kansas Football Roster Talk

One of the first glimpses at the 2010 Kansas football roster is available as we are just a few short days away from Big 12 media days. 

Obviously the players on the team aren't any secret, but there might be some interest in the reported heights and weights.  Maybe the new freshman on the roster and of course of special interest this year, any number changes going into the season since as we all know, there will be no names on the Jayhawk jersey's.

With that in mind let's dive in, take a look and get some high level thoughts on the 2010 Kansas Jayhawks.

There are definitely some players in the freshman class who appear on paper to be well prepared.

Brandon Bourbon's 6'1" 208lb frame is pretty impressive.  In fact, the word is they had him drop a few lb's since his arrival and if you have that type of size with his athletic capabilities, there is certainly a chance to see the field.

By the same Token James Sims looks just as much the part at 6' 206.

As for the receivers Andrew Turzilli seems to have bulked up a bit while Brian Maura measuring in at 6'4" is a very nice target with his combination of size and speed.

Trent Smiley at 6'4" 232 isn't a bad place to start for a tight end and Jimmay Mundine's #41 jersey number brings about visions of a potential H-back threat in a Jayhawk uniform.

The last group jumping off the page is a group of defenders.  Jake Farley's 6'3" 215 pound listing wouldn't be too bad considering Huldon Tharp made an impact a year ago at a mere 6' 217.   Dexter McDonald and Jeremiah Edwards are two other players that on paper look the part at the position they play from day one.

Offensive Line

Beef!! It's what's for dinner.  Sam Elliott would enjoy this group.  It appears the focus on bulking up has paid off for some.  Jeremiah Hatch at 332, Duane Zlatnik at 326, Brad Thorson at 310 which I'm not sure I believe, and Jeff Spikes at 325

The bad news is two of those three are hurt, a third is in question and one is out for the season.  Tanner Hawkinson, Trevor Marrongelli and Sal Capra all need to get on the Big MAN plan.

Fullback and other Running Backs

Shades of the Joel Mackovicka and the Cory Schlesinger days at Nebraska? 

The Jayhawks have 4 monster fullbacks on the roster and all claim the state of Kansas as their home.  Goddard's Justin Puthoff, Lawrence's Tyler Hunt, Lawrence's Jordan Fee and Sedwick Kansas native Steven Foster(maybe). 

Even behind the fullbacks the running backs in general have some great size.  Angus Quigley and Toben Opurum both look prepared to pack a punch checking in at 231 and 240 respectively.
