As mentioned a few days ago in our defensive line preview, last season Kansas completely revamped its defense, going to a base 3-4 look under new DC D.J. Eliot (as opposed to Clint Bowen’s 4-2-5). Last year, Kansas was looking at four new starters; this year, it’s just two. Plus, several underclassmen who were contributors down the stretch are back as well. Let’s take a look.
Cause for Concern
Gone are senior starters from last year in Najee Stevens-Mckenzie and Azur Kamara. Dru Prox missed eight games due to injury. Once again, the Jayhawks will be young and inexperienced.
