Spring Game Draft

MANHATTAN, Kan. - The Kansas State football program conducted its inaugural Purple-White Spring Game Draft Thursday at the Vanier Football Complex with defensive coordinator Raheem Morris and offensive coordinator James Franklin selecting their respective squads for Saturday's spring game at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
Morris, who will coach the White team, didn't waste any time putting his defense in place and made senior linebacker Zach Diles the first overall selection, according to K-State head coach Ron Prince.
Purple head coach, offensive coordinator James Franklin, also went with defense with his first pick, selecting redshirt freshman defensive end Eric Childs.
The balance of the two teams were filled out in less than an hour, Prince said, with the two coordinators alternating selections.
On Friday, the two teams will practice separately for Saturday's spring game, with Morris' White squad preparing in K-State's indoor football facility and Franklin's Purple charges working out in Snyder Family Stadium.
The workouts are open to all K-State students, faculty and staff with I.D.
