Skylar Thompson is back from injury and is incredibly experienced. That’ll help the Kansas State football team’s offense.
Few players in all of college football have anywhere near the amount of experience as Kansas State’s Skylar Thompson. Thompson has played, at one point or another, for the Wildcats in every season since 2017.
He helped get Kansas State off to a good start in 2020, but unfortunately for Thompson and the Wildcats, an injury ended his season prematurely.
Now he’s back for another season and he’s got a great opportunity to use all of that experience and help the Wildcats get a few wins this year. In total, he’s played in 35 games and has thrown for 5,021 yards and 30 touchdowns against just 12 interceptions in his career.
He’s also run for 1,083 yards and 22 touchdowns to go with those passing yards and touchdowns.
The Wildcats could certainly use that sort of consistency for their offense, but they could also use a little bit more from their starting quarterback. There’s a good chance that they will need Thompson to take a step forward as a passer to help win a few more games in 2021.
Thompson has been good and has helped the Wildcats win two games against the Oklahoma Sooners in as many seasons. If he can play to the level that he does when he faces the Sooners, then he can elevate the level of success that Kansas State has this year.
