Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Collin Klein is one of five finalists for the Walter Camp Player of the Year award.

Though his once-promising Heisman Trophy hopes are all but gone, Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein could still be in line for some postseason hardware. On Wednesday, Klein was named one of five finalists for one of the country's most prestigious individual honors, the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award.

While leading the No. 7 Wildcats to a 10-1 record and just a loss to Baylor away from playing for the BCS title, Klein has passed for 2,306 yards and 14 touchdowns while rushing for 787 rushing yards and an impressive 20 touchdowns.

Oregon running back Kenjon Barner, USC wide receiver Marqise Lee, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Notre Dame linebacker Manti T'eo are the other finalists for the award, which will be given out on Dec. 6.

Klein was also named one of 10 finalists for the Manning Award, which wil take bowl performance into account. The two honors are just the latest for Klein, who is also a finalist for the Maxwell and Davey O'Brien awards.

Kansas looks to clinch the Big 12 and earn a spot in a BCS bowl when they play Texas on Saturday.
