Collin Klein Listed Among Best Dual Quarterbacks In College Football

Kansas State Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein made The Sporting News list of the country's best dual-threat quarterbacks.

The list called Klein the "most valuable" of dual-threat quarterbacks in the country. Written by The Sporting News' Bill Bender, it does not specify what it means by "most valuable."

It cited four dual-threat quarterbacks as the best in the country and gave each a further distinction among the group: West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith, best passer; Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson, best runner; Klein, most valuable; and Ohio State University Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller, best all-around talent.

The list also predicted that among that group, Smith was the most likely to win the Heisman Trophy.

Klein averages 203 passing yards and 70 rushing yards per game. He's thrown for five touchdowns and run for four.

Klein's No. 15 Wildcats and No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners kick off Saturday at 6:50 p.m. CT on Fox.
