Kansas Football Key Player No. 3. WR Quentin Skinner
Aside from a terrific 2-catch, 91-yard, and 2-touchdown outing against Oklahoma State, Quentin Skinner‘s role in the offense has been limited since Jalon Daniels went down with an injury. However, the Kansas football wideout has a tremendous advantage over Iowa State’s left-side cornerback in terms of height.
Skinner stands at 6-foot-5, while Cyclones CB2 Myles Purchase is just 5-foot-11. That’s a height difference of 1/2 a foot. No matter how well Purchase covers him, he will have trouble lining up opposite this athletic freak. ISU also has 6-foot-4 Darien Porter on their roster to combat Skinner’s length, but he has far less experience and talent than his counterpart.
Lawrence Arnold and Luke Grimmare always threats to catch some passes, and they also could have impressive games. We know that Jason Bean isn’t the most accurate quarterback, but with Skinner towering over opposing defenders and possessing incredible speed, fans could see him break off a few big plays tomorrow.
