If the things that Dineen, Beaty, Meacham, and others have said about Bender are true, I'd be shocked if he's not the guy for game one.

David Beaty lists WR Quan Hampton, OL Andru Tovi,OL Earl Bostick, DE Vaughn Taylor, CB Shakial Taylor among early standouts in camp #kufball

Bostick was a guy that Beaty RAVED about at the season ticket holder signing day event. Thought he could be a first round pick if he put in the work. (his words)

Also great to see Tovi and Shak standing out early on. Shak was injured for the spring game and a bit of spring ball. Tovi got added after that.

Vaughn Taylor was a very late addition to the roster. Not sure if he is a walk-on or scholly player, but a freshman standing out is never a bad thing (also goes for Quan). -- Sounds like Vaughn was a walk-on after being declined at one of the military academies.

This is a bit of a shocker to me:

"Based on the 20-minute window open to reporters from Tuesday's practice, it appears Frazier was working at right tackle with the first-team offensive line, Zach Hannon the second team and Charles Baldwin, wearing No. 58 for the practice instead of his normal number, 72, was with the third team."

He's had a bunch of disciplinary issues all spring and summer. This doesn't surprise me too much. I have a feeling he won't play much during the first game as an even further wakeup call for Baldwin. But I imagine that he has the talent to be the starter although Frazier isn't a bad option.

And leave it up to Keegan for making a big deal about a jersey number in practice. His other one could be ripped or something. That part was pointless by him as his number is still 72 on the official roster.

As the article mentions, Frazier got beat up by Ehambe in the spring game.

Hopefully that's more telling about Ehambe than Frazier.

Bosticks bio says he played DE in the SC vs GA all star game and had 7 tackles, 3 tackles for loss and 3 QB hurries. I wish Beaty and Bowen would move him to DE this season to help with depth.

Bostick played a bit of both in HS (also TE). Given the depth at DE right now, I can understand putting him at OL--especially if they consider him NFL caliber at OT. Obviously not too bad of a decision if he's already standing out at OL.

I don't think DE really needs depth this year. Armstrong, Bean, Ehambe, Long, McCaleb Vaugh Taylor among others. At least 6 quality options for a position that you only need 2 of at a time.

The depth at DE is a mirage. Bean weighs 207 and Vaughn Taylor is listed at 200. Ehambe just had a surgical procedure so we will see how he recovers. Long is a converted QB / LB. McCaleb is 6'2". We need bigger DEs ready for this season when we get into the Big 12 games on the schedule.

Regardless of the "mirage" of depth at DE, would Bostick really fix it? My understanding was he wasn't explosive enough to play DE at a high level. OL or DT was his best fit in college.

"At 260 pounds, Bostick could play either offensive or defensive tackle at Kansas after performing well as a tight end and defensive end in high school."

He's listed there, but Bean mentioned on the radio in the last week or so that he was currently at 207.

Bostick stood out at DE in the South Carolina vs Georgia HS all star game. We have enough depth on OL this season but not at DE. Beaty should play him at DE this season and then move him to OL next season after we get all of the new DE recruits.

He stood out so much at DE that Appalachian State, Georgia Southern, and Old Dominion were his other offers (on Rivals, 247). That doesn't sound like a Big 12 level DE to me.
