KSU Depth Chart - Week One

Two positions that were under scrutiny at Kansas State have been resolved -- at least for the moment.

Brock Unruh will play left guard and Brooks Rossman will handle placekicking duties, according to the first Wildcats’ football depth chart that was released Monday morning by the sports information office.

Coach Ron Prince, whose team opens at 6:45 p.m. Saturday at No. 18 Auburn on ESPN, was unsure last time he met with the media Aug. 18 about those two spots in particular, and wasn’t happy at all that they had not been cemented. They now have been addressed.

Junior college transfer Deon Murphy has won a spot at wide receiver and will be in on kickoff and punt returns.
