Bill Snyder Sees Growth 'Across The Board' In Collin Klein

Kansas State University head coach Bill Snyder had great praise for quarterback Collin Klein during the coach's weekly press conference on Wednesday.

Klein, who accounted for over 3,000 yards of total offense in 2011, is rated as one of the nation's top quarterbacks by numerous publications and has even garnered preseason All-Big 12 votes. According to Snyder, better things could be on the horizon for Klein, if his offseason growth has anything to do with it:

"The growth has been across the board. It is not just focused in one area. I think he has grown in every aspect of the game. He has grown in regards to his game management. He has grown in regards to his understanding of our offense and defense. I think he has grown in terms of his leadership. He has grown in terms of his confidence level. He has grown in terms of his overall understanding and presence on the field, as well as some physical things, running game and passing game. I have seen some positive movement in all of those areas."

Snyder went on to say that he feels comfortable with his senior QB doing some of his own playcalling, as does KSU co-offensive coordinator Del Miller.

The Wildcats open the season on Saturday vs. Missouri State in Manhattan, Kan. Kickoff is slated for 6:10 p.m. CT.
