The Kansas State football team will likely need multiple players to start performing at a higher level if the entire team is going to see a new level of success.
Kansas State has a ton of potential to be good next season, but it’ll take a multitude of guys improving how they play for the entire team to improve. There are plenty of guys on this roster who will have opportunities in 2021 to help the Wildcats get some wins.
It won’t be hard for the Kansas State football team to be better than what it was in 2020, but I doubt this team will be satisfied with simply being better than a four-win team.
If Kansas State’s offense is going to get rolling consistently, the Wildcats will need to have a some stability and consistency on the offensive line. Having a senior leading things at the center position should help with that.
Noah Johnson stands at 6-1 and 293 pounds and he’s gained plenty of experience over his career at both Kansas State and Butler Community College. He should be able to help keep Skylar Thompson upright throughout the season, but he’ll need to demonstrate that consistently this year.
The Kansas State football team hasn’t exactly been very good when it comes to throwing the ball around and the Wildcats certainly need to have a wide receiver take a step forward this season. Chabastin Taylor has the talent to be able to do that.
Taylor had the third-most receiving yards on the Kansas State football team in 2020, but that only turns out to be 293 yards. The 6-4, 223 pound receiver has improved a bit every season so far and could conceivably improve again this season.
Following a frustrating end to the 2020 season and the departure of some key contributors, it made sense that the Kansas State Wildcats would go out and grab a few talented available players in the transfer portal.
Julius Brents was one of those players. The 6-4, 204 pound defensive back got some solid experience while he was at Iowa and he has the ability to make an impact for Kansas State’s defense this season.
