  07/28/22 - QB Jason BeanrSr/2024, Kansas

  Although much of the conversation about Kansas' quarterbacks centered on Jalon Daniels earlier this month during Big 12 football media days, coach Lance Leipold made it known that he's still looking forward to the preseason performance of Jason Bean. "Jason Bean has a lot better understanding (of the offense) and is doing a lot better than where he was last September, so I'm anxious to see him as well," Leipold said. "I think that is good." Daniels started the last three games for the Jayhawks, including the surprising 57-56 overtime victory at Texas in which he threw the winning two-point conversion pass to fullback Jared Casey, and is expected to remain in that role when the season opens Sept. 2 against Tennessee Tech. Before Daniels, though, was Bean, a nine-game starter who decided to transfer to Kansas from North Texas in March 2021 and only missed the outing at Texas because of an unspecified injury.

That injury opened the door for Daniels, who was supposed to redshirt last season as a sophomore. Instead, Daniels decided to forgo that plan and finish out the year on the field. And while Leipold didn't outright make the proclamation that Daniels would be the starter, all signs are pointing to that being the case - and Bean resuming as his backup. "We've told him where he is," Leipold said. "We've told him what he has to improve upon. He embraces it. He understands it. He hasn't shied away from anything, and again, he's the kind of guy that, because he's pretty low-key in what he does and how he goes about it, you don't really notice (anything) when you're trying to read his body language. But I'm very impressed because he's another guy that is so much more comfortable in what we're doing." - Lawrence Journal World
