 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Jason Bean didn't gush about his own abilities or attempt to present himself as the answer to the Kansas football team's offensive problems on Friday during his fist interview since joining the roster earlier this summer. Instead, the former North Texas starting quarterback steered the conversation another direction when asked how he would describe himself to KU fans who hadn't seen him play before. "I'm just a hard worker," Bean said, after beginning his response by sharing how excited he is to be at KU. "I'm ready to help turn this program around and get it in the right direction and just start to win games here."

The few weeks of preseason practices between now and the Jayhawks' season opener on Sept. 3 versus South Dakota will determine what type of role Bean plays in Year 1 of new head coach Lance Leipold's rebuilding project. After Leipold watched the newest QB on the roster practice for the first time on Thursday, Leipold shared his initial impressions of Bean, a junior who is one of three QBs in the running for the team's starting job. "I like his hair. He's got a lot more than me," a joking Leipold began. "Big, tall kid. Runs well. He's got a strong arm. He's coachable right now. He comes in understanding he's got to compete." Involved with a QB competition at North Texas throughout much of what would be his final season with that team in 2020, Bean finished with a 54.5% completion percentage, and threw for 1,131 yards and 14 touchdowns during his eight appearances this past fall. He went 79-for-145 through the air, with five interceptions. - Lawrence Journal World
