Let’s get some QB action going, eh?

(1) Todd Reesing

Probably the most popular KU football player of all time, he played at KU from 2006-09 and led KU to the 2008 Orange Bowl win over Virginia Tech... I think we’re done here.

OK, fine, I’ll give you a little more. Reesing was never named first team All-Conference. He was not an All-American. He was just a guy that came in to a plug-and-play offense and put up gaudy stats.

I kid, I kid! Reesing owns basically every passing record at Kansas, both in a career and in most cases in a single season: attempts, completions, yards, TDs, even completion percentage. Only one player in KU history has played in more games at the QB position than Reesing’s 41 (Frank Seurer, 44).

(16) Asheiki Preston

Preston quarterbacked the Jayhawks from 1992-94, playing in 23 games in his Kansas career. He sits at 12th and 15th in the career passing yards and TD ranks, respectively. Similar to Reesing, Preston had the ability to scramble, as he racked up 513 career rushing yards to go along with 8 rushing TDs.
