Speaking of defensive backs, Jahron McPherson has been a solid contributor for the Kansas State football team during his career.
The Kansas State Wildcats weren’t exactly great at stopping their opponents’ offenses in 2020 and that’ll need to change if K-State is going to get to winning. The Wildcats, unfortunately, allowed their foes to score 32.2 points per game.
They were particularly vulnerable through the air and gave up 267.5 passing yards per game along with two passing touchdowns per game. Opposing quarterbacks completed 67.7 percent of their passes.
That’s not great!
If that’s going to change, having an experienced leader like Jahron McPherson in the secondary could certainly help the Wildcats’ defense. McPherson was solid in 2020 and was one of the bright spots for Kansas State throughout the season.
In total, McPherson was K-State’s leading tackler with 54 tackles, including 3.5 tackles for loss. McPherson also grabbed a couple of picks to go with all of those tackles. The Wildcats will likely need him to be a bit better though.
With the amount of experience McPherson has, his veteran presence should certainly help Kansas State’s struggling defense.
