K-State football opens spring practice Wednesday in Manhattan.
There are far more questions on offense than defense right now for the Wildcats. Only four starters from the Liberty Bowl loss to Arkansas return on offense, including just one offensive lineman.
The quarterback job is up in the air despite Joe Hubener starting 11 games last season. Jesse Ertz and Alex Delton are expected to be available after suffering knee injuries last season. Ertz had won the job before getting hurt on the first series of the season. Talented freshman Skylar Thompson is already enrolled for the spring and should compete, too.
There are seven starters from the final game of last season returning on defense, plus Will Geary and Duke Shelley, who both missed the game. K-State will also get Dante Barnett back after he was granted a medical hardship waiver.
The only public look at the Wildcats this spring comes on April 23 with the Purple/White spring game.
