Just moments after his team returned to the Anderson Family Football Complex by school bus from the practice fields west of Hoglund Ballpark, Beaty spoke with excitement in his tone but a measured pause in his voice about what he saw on Day 1.

Stanford is the third transfer wide receiver KU has added in the last four months, joining LaQuvionte Gonzalez (transferred from Texas A&M in April) and Quincy Perdue (left UAB for KU in June). Former South Carolina linebacker Marcquis Roberts was added as a transfer as well. Gonzalez and Roberts will have to sit out the 2015 season, while Perdue and Stanford are eligible to play immediately.
Stanford — a 6-foot-1 receiver who was on Virginia Tech’s roster three seasons — will be eligible for the Jayhawks this season as a graduate transfer. The junior will have two years of eligibility remaining.
The Jayhawks were in their old practice location — and will be there for the first couple of weeks at least — because the projected temperatures made it too hot to hang out on the turf at the practice fields and Memorial Stadium.
First-year Kansas football coach David Beaty meets with media members following the first day of preseason practice, and discusses the excitement and teaching that come with this time of year. Plus, Beaty talks about how the coaching staff filled out KU’s rosters with walk-ons, as well as the addition of Josh Stanford, a wide receiver who played previously at Virginia Tech.
