Kansas Fall Camp Notes: 8-15


Kansas defensive coordinator Dave Campo met with the media after last nights practice. Here is a breakdown of the defense’s progress so far in practice.

Junior defensive lineman Jordan Tavai is showing great signs of being a big talent so far in practice. Tavai according to Campo, is a “talented young man who needs to pick up the stamina part of the defense thing, and has a lot of twitch in him.”
Campo is enjoying the college coaching so far stating that it is a breath of fresh air. “I think fundamentally we are a better team then we were when I came in here,” Campo said.

The defensive line is looking good in camp. The group is headed by Toben Opu

rum and Kebo Agostinho. Junior college transfer Ty McKinney and Tavai, will both fight for jobs on the line and playing rotation.

Over on the offensive side of things, the battle is strong for the backup quarterback job. Micheal Cummings seems to have the inside track right now, though Turner Baty remains a threat. Wide receiver Kale Pick is also showing great signs of becoming a strong player at camp. Pick, is making plays and taking notes, paying attention of what to do. He is a former quarterback from two years ago.
